Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States rose during the week ending October 17, according to the Energy Information Administration.

Five LNG cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 16.9 billion cubic feet (Bcf) departed the US in the week under review.

All of these cargoes were exported from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility as Dominion’s Cove Point plant was undergoing maintenance.

This compares to four LNG carriers, with a combined carrying capacity of 15 Bcf that departed from Sabine Pass from October 4 through October 10.

As reported earlier this week, the Cove Point liquefaction terminal has completed its scheduled maintenance, and it resumed receiving natural gas feedstock deliveries by pipeline on October 12.

Feedstock deliveries to Cove Point averaged 0.4 Bcf/d through Wednesday, according to EIA.

Also worth noting here, Kinder Morgan, the developer of the Elba Island liquefaction facility in Georgia, has announced a delay in the start-up of the facility until the first quarter of next year.

The first six of the facility’s liquefaction units were expected to be online in the fourth quarter of 2018, however, Hurricanes Florence and Michael have affected the construction schedule and led to the delays, EIA said in the report.
