The U.S. Energy Information Administration noted that during the week between January 7 and January 13, a total of 16 vessels departed the United States LNG export facilities.

The 16 vessels had a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 9 Billion cubic feet (Bcf).

This compares to 21 vessels with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 77 Billion cubic feet (Bcf), that departed U.S. LNG export facilities in the previous week.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG plant shipped a total of seven cargoes followed by three each from its Corpus Christi facility and Sempra’s Cameron LNG plant.

Freeport LNG plant shipped two cargoes while Dominion’s Cove Point facility shipped a single cargo.

Natural gas deliveries to U.S. LN export facilities averaged 10.8 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), or 0.22 Bcf/d lower than last week.

Beginning on January 12, scheduled maintenance at the Sinton Compressor Station along Cheniere’s Corpus Christie pipeline reduced flows to Corpus Christi LNG by approximately 128 MMcf/d, EIA noted citing Natural Gas Intelligence.
