The United States Department of Energy recently informed that during the first quarter of 2016, Cheniere’s Sabine Pass export facility shipped 11.5 billion cubic feet of domestically produced LNG.
The first cargo was shipped to Brazil on February 24, marking the start of exports of the U.S. shale gas to the overseas markets. Included in the first two deliveries was an additional 1.83 bcf of previously imported LNG.
Three more cargoes that were dispatched from the facility during the first quarter were delivered to, India, Brazil for the second time, and the United Arab Emirates, the report shows, revealing the cargoes were priced from $3.35 per mmBtu to $3.77 mmBtu.
DoE’s report showed that 4.460 Mcf of liquefied natural gas was exported in ISO containers.
The total amount of liquefied natural gas exported onboard LNG carriers from the United States, including re-exports, reached 12.3 Bcf during the first quarter.
LNG imports into the United States reached 27.2 Bcf in the quarter under review, according to the DoE’s report, all sourced from Trinidad and Tobago and delivered to the Northeast Gateway Deepwater Port operated by Excelerate Energy and Engie’s Everett LNG terminal.
Imports of liquefied natural gas into Puerto Rico reached 15.2 Bcf during the first quarter with seven out of eight cargoes coming from Trinidad and Tobago and one cargo from the UK.
