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.
