Exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States edged up since the last weekly, according to a report issued by the Energy Information Administration.

During the week ending July 11, six LNG vessels departed the United States with a total LNG carrying capacity of 22.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas, slightly above the 21.7 Bcf dispatched in the previous period EIA reported on.

Four cargoes left Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility in Louisiana with two cargoes shipped from the Dominion’s Cove Point facility in Maryland.

The natural gas feedstock to both of the terminals averaged 3.3 Bcf/d during the report week, down from the 3.5 Bcf/d the week before.

Cheniere Energy, the developer of the Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi liquefaction terminals, received permission from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission last week to start commissioning a fuel gas system at Corpus Christi Train 1 and introduce hot oil as part of the commissioning activities.

Corpus Christi has two trains currently under construction, with the third stage of the expansion consisting of seven modular liquefaction trains and a storage tank. The third expansion stage received a Final Investment Decision in May.
