US exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from shale gas rose week-on-week, according to the weekly report by the Energy Information Administration.

Five LNG vessels with a combined capacity of 18.4 billion cubic feet (Bcf) departed Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction facility in the week ending January 31, as compared to three LNG vessels with a capacity of 11.5 Bcf the week before.

Two LNG tankers with a capacity 7.6 Bcf were loading at the terminal on Wednesday, EIA said.

The natural gas feedstock to the terminal averaged 3.2 Bcf/d during the report week, after decreasing to 2.0 Bcf/d in the prior week, and averaged 2.6 Bcf/d during January.

On the other side, Dominion Energy’s Cove Point terminal in Maryland, the second US facility to produce LNG from shale gas, started producing LNG this week.

Cove Point, the only liquefaction facility located on the East Coast of the US, expects first LNG exports in early March.

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.
