US LNG exports rise on week
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States have increased week over week.
Twelve LNG vessels with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 44 billion cubic feet departed the United States between July 4 and July 10.
Out of the twelve vessels, seven were shipped from Sabine Pass, two from Cove Point, two from Corpus Christi, and one from Cameron LNG facility, data from the Energy Information Administration shows.
One vessel was loading at the Sabine Pass terminal on Wednesday.
Natural gas feedstock deliveries to U.S. liquefaction facilities set a new record last week, reaching 6.3 billion cubic feet per day on July 4 and July 7, 2019. They averaged 6.1 Bcf/d for the report week—the highest weekly average to date—EIA notes, citing PointLogic Energy data.
Flows to the newly commissioned Cameron Train 1 and Corpus Christi Train 2 increased, indicating that both trains have ramped up feedstock deliveries to full capacity.
Last week, the first cargo was loaded with LNG produced at the newly-commissioned Train 2 at the Corpus Christi LNG facility.
The Corpus Christi terminal in Texas consists of three trains, each with a baseload nameplate capacity of 0.6 Bcf/d. Two trains are now fully operational. The third train is under construction and is expected to come online in May 2021.
