US exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from shale gas were lower week-on-week, according to a report by the Energy Information Administration.

Three LNG vessels with a combined capacity of 10.4 billion cubic feet (Bcf) departed Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction facility in the week ending January 10, as compared to four vessels with a capacity of 15.2 Bcf the week before.

One tanker with a capacity of 3.4 Bcf was loading at the terminal on Wednesday, EIA said in its weekly report.

Natural gas pipeline deliveries to Sabine Pass averaged 2.3 Bcf/d for the week under review, as compared to 3 Bcf the week before.

To remind, US exports of LNG reached a new record in December.

There are four 0.6-Bcfd liquefaction trains operating at Sabine Pass, currently the only such facility to ship US shale gas overseas, and a fifth is under construction and expected to enter service in mid-2019.

Another LNG export facility is soon expected to join Sabine Pass when Dominion Energy’s 0.7-bcfd Cove Point terminal in Maryland enters service.

EIA also noted in its report, citing a report by Bloomberg, that the start-up of the Cove Point liquefaction terminal is now expected for early spring.
