Liquefied natural gas exports from the U.S. decreased over the last week, according to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

EIA stated in its weekly report that eight LNG vessels, six from Sabine Pass, one from Corpus Christi, and one from Cameron departed from the United States between May 30 to June 5.

The eight vessels held a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 33.4 bcf. It is worth noting that one vessel was loading at the Sabine Pass terminal on Wednesday, June 5.

EIA added that Cheniere Energy — the developer of the Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi liquefaction terminals in Louisiana and Texas — announced on Monday that the company made a final investment decision to proceed with the development of Sabine Pass Train 6.

Currently, Sabine Pass has five trains in operation, with a combined baseload LNG-production capacity of 2.96 bcf/d. The Sabine Pass facility has a peak capacity of 3.5 bcf/d.

Train 6 has a full set of regulatory approvals and will have a 0.59 bcf/d baseload LNG-production capacity.
