US exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from shale gas increased week-on-week, according to a report by the Energy Information Administration.

Five LNG vessels with a combined carrying capacity 17.2 billion cubic feet departed the Sabine Pass liquefaction facility in the week ending January 17, as compared to three LNG vessels with a combined capacity of 10.4 billion cubic feet (Bcf).

One tanker (LNG-carrying capacity 3.8 Bcf) was loading at the terminal on Wednesday, EIA’s weekly report shows.

Natural gas pipeline deliveries to Sabine Pass averaged 2.9 Bcf/d for the week under review, as compared to 2.3 Bcf the week before.

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.

Another LNG export facility is soon expected to join Sabine Pass when Dominion Energy’s 0.7-bcfd Cove Point terminal in Maryland enters service.
