Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States declined during the week ending August 8, according to the Energy Information Administration.

Five LNG cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 21.6 billion cubic feet (Bcf) departed the two US LNG export terminals currently exporting the shale gas-sourced fuel during the week under review.

Four of these cargoes departed from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal and one from the Dominion-operated Cove Point facility.

This compares to six LNG cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 21.6 Bcf that departed the US the week before.

Two LNG tankers with a combined capacity of 7.1 Bcf were also loading on Wednesday, one at Sabine Pass and one at Cove Point, each, EIA said in its weekly gas report.

The natural gas feedstock to the two LNG terminals averaged 3.3 Bcf/d during the week under review, compared to 3.5 Bcf/d last week, EIA said.
