Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction facility in Louisiana reached 52 billion cubic feet in February, the latest data from the U.S. Department of Energy shows.

This marks a new high as volumes exported in February surpassed the 51.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas exported in January.

The Sabine Pass plant, currently the only such facility to ship U.S. shale gas overseas, exported in total 16 LNG cargoes in February, however, the first cargo of the month, loaded onboard the Clean Ocean LNG carrier was split between Portugal and Spain.

LNG cargoes shipped from the facility in February were priced from $3.9 per mmBtu to 7.05 per mmBtu.

In total, volumes exported from the Sabine Pass reached 103.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas During the first two months.

In addition to the LNG exported from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility, 36.8 million cubic feet of natural gas were exported by American LNG by ISO containers from the Hialeah facility in Florida to Barbados. All cargoes were booked at the $10 per mmBtu, according to the DOE’s data.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
