US LNG exports picking up following Hurricane Harvey

US liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal in Louisiana are picking up following the flooding in Texas and Louisiana due to Hurricane Harvey.

Since vessel loadings resumed at Sabine Pass, currently the only such a facility to send US shale gas overseas, on September 6, five vessels with a carrying capacity of 18.1 Bcf have departed the terminal, according to the Energy Information Administration.

One LNG vessel with a carrying capacity of  3.7 Bcf was loading at the terminal on September 13, EIA said in its weekly natural gas report.

The Sabine Pass plant was not damaged and continued to produce LNG during Harvey, according to Cheniere, but the port was inaccessible to vessels for almost two weeks due to strong currents and high water levels.

Cheniere started shipping cargoes from the Sabine Pass plant in February last year and since then it has exported more than 170 cargoes worldwide.

The company is also building its second LNG export plant at Corpus Christi on the U.S. Gulf Coast.
