Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States decreased during the week that ended May 30, the Energy Information Administration said in its weekly natural gas report.

Four LNG tankers, with a combined capacity of 14.4 billion cubic feet (Bcf), left Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal from May 24 to May 30 while one cargo with a capacity of 3.3 Bcf was loading at the Cove Point terminal on Wednesday, according to EIA.

This compares to five LNG carriers, with a combined capacity of 18.8 Bcf, that departed the two exporting facilities the week before.

The natural gas feedstock to both of the terminals averaged 2.8 Bcf/d during the report week, the same as the week before.

EIA noted in the report that, on May 25, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted Cheniere permission to introduce natural gas to the fuel system of the fifth train at its Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal, beginning the commissioning process.

The train is currently scheduled to be completed in 2019.
