The combined LNG-carrying capacity of the 15 tankers was at 55 billion cubic feet. This compares to 16 cargoes in the previous week with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 59 Bcf.

Out of the 15 cargoes, seven departed from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG facility, three were shipped from the Freeport LNG plant and two cargoes each departed the Cameron LNG and Corpus Christi LNG facilities. The remaining cargo was shipped from the Cove Point LNG export plant in Maryland.
