Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal in Louisiana has shipped more cargoes in the week ending November 15 as compared to the previous week, according to the Energy Information Administration.
Six vessels with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 21.6 billion cubic feet (Bcf) have departed the plant since Wednesday last week, EIA said in its weekly natural gas report. This compares to four vessels with a capacity of 14.4 Bcf the week before.
One tanker with a capacity of 3.8 Bcf was loading at the terminal on Wednesday.
Natural gas pipeline deliveries to Sabine Pass averaged 2.8 Bcf/d for the week ending November 15, down 0.1 Bcf from the previous week.
There are currently four 0.6-Bcfd liquefaction trains operating at Sabine Pass and a fifth is under construction and expected to enter service in mid-2019.
The Sabine Pass plant, currently the only such a facility to export US shale gas overseas, shipped more than 210 LNG cargoes since February last year with deliveries completed to 25 countries, according to Cheniere.
