U.S. weekly LNG exports flat
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States remained flat during the past week.
A total of 14 vessel departed U.S. LNG export facilities during the week between October 1 and October 7, 2020.
The tankers had a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 52 Bcf, data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows.
This compares to a total of 14 cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 50 Bcf, exported in the previous week.
Out of the fourteen LNG cargoes exported during the week under review, Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant exported six while the Freeport LNG plant added four.
Corpus Christi facility shipped three cargoes with the Cameron LNG facility shipping a single cargo during the period.
Cove Point LNG terminal remains shut down for scheduled annual maintenance.
The cargo Cameron LNG exported was the first one post-Hurricane Laura.
According to a Reuters report, the facility has shut down its facility on Thursday as Hurricane Delta closes in on the Gulf Coast.
Natural gas deliveries to U.S. liquefied natural gas export facilities averaged 7.3 Bcf/d, or 0.8 Bcf/d higher than last week.
