US LNG exports up on week to six cargoes
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States rose during the week ending October 24, according to the Energy Information Administration.
Six LNG cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 22 billion cubic feet (Bcf) departed the US in the week under review.
All of these cargoes were exported from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility.
This compares to five LNG cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 16.9 Bcf that departed the US in the week before.
EIA noted in its weekly natural gas report that commissioning of the first train of the new Corpus Christi liquefaction terminal in Texas continued last week.
The Cheniere-operated facility has two trains, each with a baseload capacity of 0.6 billion cubic feet per day. The first LNG export from the facility is expected by the end of this year.
