Liquefied natural gas exports from the U.S. increased for the second week running, according to the weekly report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
The data shows that nine vessels with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 32.8 Bcf departed the United States from February 14 to February 20.
Out of the nine vessels, seven departed from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility in Louisiana and two from Dominion’s Cove Point facility in Maryland.
One vessel was loading at the Corpus Christi terminal on Wednesday, February 20, EIA said.
Natural gas feedstock deliveries to the Corpus Christi terminal have averaged 0.7 Bcf/d since February 15, EIA notes citing data from PointLogic Energy, as the facility prepares to enter commercial service on February 25.
After shipping a cargo on January 17, the facility has been undergoing a scheduled maintenance. The facility’s second train, which is currently under construction, is expected to start commissioning activities this spring.
