US LNG exports decline on week to 5 cargoes

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal in Louisiana, currently the only such a facility to export US shale gas overseas, has sent out less cargoes in the week ending February 14 as compared to the previous week.

Five LNG vessels with a combined capacity of 17.2 billion cubic feet (Bcf) have departed the plant since Wednesday last week, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) said in its weekly natural gas report.

This compares to six LNG vessels with a combined capacity of 22.6 Bcf in the week before.

One tanker with a capacity of 3.8 Bcf was loading at the terminal on Wednesday.

The natural gas feedstock to the Sabine Pass terminal averaged 3.2 Bcf/d during the report week as compared to 3.3 Bcf/d in the prior week.

To remind, federal safety regulators have on February 8 instructed Cheniere to remove from service two of five LNG storage tanks at its Sabine Pass terminal following a gas leak last month.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility is the first liquefaction and export facility and currently the only such facility to ship U.S. shale gas overseas. The plant will be soon joined by Dominion’s Cove Point facility that is expected to ship its first cargo in March.

There are four 0.6-Bcfd liquefaction trains operating at Sabine Pass, and a fifth is under construction and expected to enter service in mid-2019. Cheniere also plans to start its Corpus Christi plant next year.

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.
