Issues with water supply in the city of Port Arthur have reportedly impacted operations at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass natural gas liquefaction and export facility. 

Natural gas deliveries to the facility were at 1,700 mmcf per day, which indicates the facility is running at 50 percent of nameplate capacity currently.

Platts analytics data showed the plant’s feedgas consumption declined to 630 mmcf per day on Thursday last week, slightly rising from Friday to Sunday.

Responding to LNG World News, Cheniere’s vice president, communications, Eben Burnham-Snyder noted that the cold weather impacted water supply for the community of Port Arthur.

“We are currently managing the situation resulting from the sustained cold weather in the region,” he said adding that the company is working on the delivery of LNG it is scheduled to deliver.

Low temperatures that dipped to -6°C mid-week which caused breaks in water mains in Port Arthur which led to water supply issues at the Sabine Pass LNG plant.
