Liquefied natural gas exports from the U.S. increased over the past week, as deliveries return to normal levels following weather issues last week.

According to the weekly report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports increased week over week.

Six LNG vessels, five from Sabine Pass and one from Cove Point, with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 21.3 bcf departed the United States from February 7 and February 13.

Exports from Sabine Pass were down last week because of heavy fog restricting transit through the shipping channel, which disrupted operations at the facility.

Scheduled natural gas deliveries to the terminal fell to 0.7 bcf/d during the fog, the lowest level since January 2018, when freezing weather disrupted the water supply to the terminal.

Deliveries returned to normal levels of 3.3 bcf on Friday, February 8.
