Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States were flat during the week ending December 12, according to the Energy Information Administration.

Eight LNG cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 26.2 billion cubic feet (Bcf) departed the US in the week under review.

Six of these cargoes departed from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal, one from the newly launched Corpus Christi facility and one cargo was shipped from the Dominion Cove plant.

Cheniere Energy, the developer of the Corpus Christi liquefaction facility in Texas, said that the first commissioning cargo departed the terminal onboard LNG carrier Maria Energy on December 11. This LNG cargo is reportedly heading to Greece and it would be the country’s first LNG cargo from the US.

Corpus Christi is the first greenfield liquefaction export facility built in the Lower 48 states and the first LNG export facility in Texas.


US imports two LNG cargoes


Two LNG cargoes were imported into the United States so far this month, one to Everett terminal in Massachusetts and one to Cove Point in Maryland, EIA noted in its weekly report.

Both cargoes came from Trinidad and Tobago’s Atlantic LNG facility in Point Fortin.

Before these imports arrived, the last LNG cargo imported into Everett came in November 2018 and to Cove Point in January 2018.

The cargo imported into Cove Point in January was used as a cool down cargo as part of the commissioning process of the new liquefaction facilities.
