US exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from shale gas are continuing to increase and they have reached a new record in November.

A record 23 cargoes or about 81 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of LNG were exported from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility last month, according to the US Energy Information Administration and the ship-tracking data.

This exceeded the previous record of 22 cargoes set in October.

There are four 0.6-Bcfd liquefaction trains operating at Sabine Pass, currently the only such facility to ship US shale gas overseas, and a fifth is under construction and expected to enter service in mid-2019.

By the end of the year, another LNG export facility is expected to join Sabine Pass when Dominion Energy’s 0.7-bcfd Cove Point terminal in Maryland enters service.
