Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States bounced back after a slight decline during the previous week. 

The United States Energy Information Administration (EIA) said in its weekly report that its two export facilities shipped a total of seven cargoes in the week ending April 18.

Data shows that six vessels, with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 21.6 billion cubic feet (Bcf) departed the Cheniere-operated Sabine Pass liquefaction facility in Louisiana as compared to five vessels in the previous week.

One vessel with the LNG-carrying capacity of 3.8 Bcf was loading at the terminal on Wednesday.

Dominion Energy Cove Point liquefaction facility in Maryland started commercial operations on April 10 and shipped its first commercial cargo on April 16.

The $4 billion Cove Point facility with a nameplate capacity of 5.25 mtpa, is the second US facility to produce LNG from shale gas, went through a maintenance period and has slowly been ramping up to full production.
