Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States decreased in the week ending June 13, the Energy Information Administration said in its weekly natural gas report.

Four LNG tankers with a combined cargo capacity of 14.6 Bcf departed the United States during the week under review, two less, compared to the previous week when six carriers totaling a capacity of 21.8 billion cubic feet (Bcf) left the US export plants.

EIA noted that no cargoes were dispatched from the Dominion Cove Point LNG plant in Maryland and all four cargoes shipped were from the Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility in Louisiana.

The natural gas feedstock to both of the terminals averaged 2.9 Bcf/d during the report week, up compared to the 2.7 Bcf/d the week before.

EIA added that Cheniere filed a request with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for authorization to introduce fuel gas to begin commissioning Train 1 at its Corpus Christi LNG facility in Texas.

Cheniere is currently building two liquefaction trains at the site and has reached a final investment decision to build the third LNG train at the export plant.
