US LNG exports drop week on week
- Ports & Logistics
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States decreased week on week, Energy Information Administration said in its report.
EIA stated in its weekly report that seven LNG vessels, all from Sabine, departed from the United States between May 2 to May 8.
The five vessels held a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 24.5 bcf.
The Administration added that a total of three vessels—one at each terminal—were loading at Sabine Pass, Corpus Christi, and Cove Point on Wednesday.
EIA also said that, during its quarterly conference call this week, Sempra Energy—the owner of the Cameron LNG facility in Louisiana—announced that it was in the final step of commissioning for Train 1.
However, Trains 2 and 3 will not enter service this year as projected and are delayed until the first half of 2020.
