Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States rose during the week ending August 15, according to the Energy Information Administration.
Six LNG cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 21.8 billion cubic feet (Bcf) departed the two US LNG export terminals currently exporting the shale gas-sourced fuel during the week under review.
Four of these cargoes departed from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal and two from the Dominion-operated Cove Point facility.
This compares to five LNG cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 21.6 Bcf that departed the US the week before.
Two LNG tankers with a combined capacity of 7.3 Bcf were also loading on Wednesday, August 15, both at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass export facility in Louisiana, EIA said in its weekly gas report.
The natural gas feedstock to the two LNG terminals averaged 3.5 Bcf/d during the week under review, compared to 3.3 Bcf/d last week, EIA said.
