Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States slipped back after rising for three consecutive weeks previously. 

For the week ending November 7, five liquefied natural gas carriers with a total carrying capacity of 18.2 Bcf departed the United States, compared to 7 cargoes in the previous week, data from the United States Energy Information Administration shows.

Four cargoes departed Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG facility in Louisianna with one cargo departing Dominion’s Cove Point facility in Maryland.

One LNG tanker with the carrying capacity of 3.5 Bcf was loading at Sabine Pass on Wednesday, the data shows.

EIA noted in its weekly natural gas report that the natural gas feedstock to US LNG terminals averaged 4.0 Bcf/d during the week under review, compared to 3.7 Bcf/d last week.

Cheniere noted in its latest quarterly report that it has already achieved production from its fifth train that is 98.5 percent through the commissioning process.

Two more facilities are currently undergoing commissioning, Cheniere’s Corpus Christi plant in Texas as well as Sempra Energy’s Cameron LNG facility in Louisianna that kicked off the commissioning of its support facilities and first liquefaction train of Phase 1.

Phase 1 of the Cameron LNG liquefaction-export project, which includes the first three liquefaction trains, is a $10 billion facility with a projected export capability of 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG, or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day.

All three trains are expected to be producing LNG in 2019, Sempra Energy said.
