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

EIA stated in its weekly report that eight LNG vessels, five from Sabine Pass, and one each from the Cove Point, Corpus Christi, and Cameron LNG export terminals departed from the United States between August 1 and August 7.

The eight vessels held a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 29 bcf. It is worth noting that one vessel was loading at the Sabine Pass terminal on Wednesday, August 7.

EIA added that natural gas feedstock deliveries to U.S. LNG export facilities averaged 4.7 bcf/d during the week, a 1.3 bcf/d decrease from the previous week as a result of scheduled maintenance on several trains.

Sabine Pass has shut down Trains 3 and 4 for maintenance, and currently only Trains 1, 2, and 5 are operating.

Feedstock deliveries to Freeport LNG have also decreased by 50 percent during the week due to testing on Train 2.

The Administration also stated that the first LNG production from Train 1 at Freeport LNG was expected in September 2019.
