Liquefied natural gas exports from the United States have increased during the past week as the Dominion’s Cove Point facility joined Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant with its first cargo. 

The Energy Information Administration said in its weekly natural gas report that one cargo left Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant in Louisiana on February 28 with five more vessels with an LNG-carrying capacity of 18.5 billion cubic feet, departing from March 1 to March 7.

One vessel with LNG-carrying capacity 3.7 Bcf was loading at the terminal on Wednesday.

In addition to exports from the Sabine Pass export facility, Dominion Energy’s Cove Point plant in Maryland loaded its first commissioning cargo onto an LNG vessel, Gemmata with an LNG carrying capacity 3.0 Bcf, which departed the facility on March 1 and appears to be en route to South America.

Feedgas deliveries to the terminals averaged 3.4 billion cubic feet per day during the week, slightly below the 3.6 Bcf/d in the week prior.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
