Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction facility in Louisiana reached about 310.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas in the first six months of the year. 

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant, currently the only such facility to ship U.S. shale gas overseas, exported in total 91 LNG cargoes in the period under review.

The largest importer of U.S. LNG was Mexico with a total of 26 cargoes during the period, data from the U.S. Department of Energy shows.

An increasing number of cargoes landed in the Asian market during the period with Japan receiving eight cargoes, South Korea importing seven and China importing five cargoes.

During the month of June alone, Sabine Pass export facility shipped a total of 15 cargoes, with prices ranging from $3.72 per mmBtu to $6.72 per mmBtu.

DOE’s report also shows that American LNG Marketing exported 103.6 million cubic feet (Mcf) of domestically produced LNG in ISO containers in the January-June period.

LNG was shipped from Miami, Fla. to Barbados with the export point price for all of the shipments at $10.00 per mmBtu.

In total, U.S. LNG exports during the month of June reached 52.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

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.
