- Ports & Logistics
Exports of liquefied natural gas from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility in Louisiana remained flat week-on-week, according to a report by the Energy Information Administration.
Four LNG vessels with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 14.8 billion cubic feet (Bcf) departed the Sabine Pass liquefaction plant since Wednesday last week, the same as the week before, EIA’s weekly report shows.
Two tankers with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 7.2 Bcf were loading at the terminal on Wednesday.
Natural gas pipeline deliveries to Sabine Pass averaged 3.1 Bcf/d for the week ending December 13, as compared to 3 Bcf the week before.
EIA noted in the report that Dominion Energ’s Cove Point liquefaction terminal in Lusby, Maryland, has continued commissioning activities after introducing feed gas in early December.
Cove Point will become the second liquefaction terminal in the Lower 48 states and the only LNG export terminal on the U.S. East Coast.
