Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States declined during the week ending August 22, according to the Energy Information Administration.

Five LNG vessels with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 18.1 Bcf departed the United States from August 16 through August 22.

Four cargoes departed from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility in Louisiana and one from Dominion’s Cove Point facility in Maryland.

Two LNG tankers with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 7.6 Bcf were loading at Sabine Pass on Wednesday, August 22.

EIA reminded that during the week, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission allowed Cheniere to introduce feed gas to the first liquefaction train at the Corpus Christi facility in Texas.

The natural gas feedstock to the two LNG terminals averaged 3.3 Bcf/d during the week under review, compared to 3.5 Bcf/d last week, EIA said.
