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.
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.
