Liquefied natural gas exports from the U.S. increased over the last week, according to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
EIA stated in its weekly report that nine LNG vessels, five from Sabine Pass, two from Cove Point, and two from Corpus Christi, departed from the United States from March 7 to March 13.
The nine vessels held a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 39.4 bcf.
The Administration added that Cheniere Energy, the developer of both the Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal in Louisiana and the Corpus Christi facility in Texas, and Bechtel announced substantial completion of Sabine Pass Train 5 this week.
EIA stated that the first commercial delivery from Train 5 was expected in September 2019.
It is worth noting that Cheniere said on Monday that the first delivery from Train 5 would be made in August.
