U.S. weekly LNG exports hit 2016 lows
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States have reached the lowest level since December 2016.
The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) noted in its weekly report that a total four cargoes departed U.S. LNG export plants.
The vessels departing during the week ending July 15, had a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 15 billion cubic feet.
Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility shipped a couple of cargoes with Cove Point and Cameron LNG plants contributing with a cargo each.
The exports levels have stooped to those of the week ending December 8, 2016 when Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant was the sole U.S. LNG export facility in operation. At the time, Sabine Pass had only two trains in operation.
EIA further noted that natural gas deliveries to liquefied natural gas export terminals slipped for the week. Pipeline deliveries reached 3.1 Bcf/d, down from 3.3 Bcf in the previous week.
