Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States remained flat during the week ending January 9. 

Data from the Energy Information Administration shows that 10 vessels departed the shores of the United States between January 3 and January 9.

The combined LNG carrying capacity of the 10 vessels is 36.2 billion cubic meters, EIA said, noting that out of the 10 cargoes, seven departed Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility, two were shipped from Dominion’s Cove Point facility and one cargo departed Cheniere’s Corpus Christi.

EIA added that U.S. LNG exports in December 2018 set another record, with 36 exported cargoes, after Train 5 at Sabine Pass and Train 1 at Corpus Christi began producing LNG and shipped their first cargoes.

Currently, seven liquefaction trains are operating in the United States across three facilities, Sabine Pass, Cove Point and Corpus Christi.

Three more liquefaction projects, Cameron LNG, Elba Island, and Freeport are expected to enter service in 2019.
