U.S. weekly LNG exports edge down
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States decreased over the past week.
A total of ten vessel departed U.S. LNG export facilities during the week between September 17 and September 23, 2020.
The tankers had a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 37 Bcf, data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows.
This compares to a total of 11 cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 41 Bcf, exported in the previous week.
Out of the ten LNG cargoes exported during the week under review, Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant exported four and its Corpus Christi plant added three cargoes.
Cove Point LNG plant added two and the Freeport LNG plant shipping one cargo.
Dominion Energy began annual maintenance at its Cove Point LNG facility on September 21.
Natural gas deliveries to U.S. liquefied natural gas export facilities averaged 6.0 Bcf/d, or 1.0 Bcf/d lower than last week.
LNG pipeline receipts fell to nearly 4.0 Bcf/d on Tuesday as Tropical Storm Beta moved through the Gulf of Mexico, disrupting LNG tanker movements.
