U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports ticked upward over the last week, building on a strong month in October for the global market as colder weather set in.
Thirteen LNG vessels, including eight from Sabine Pass, two from Corpus Christi and one each from Cove Point, Cameron and Freeport, set off between Nov. 7 and Nov. 13 with a combined carrying capacity of 47 Bcf, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). That compares to 12 vessels that departed the United States during the week ending Nov. 6 that carried 43 Bcf.
The send-out aligns with NGI’s U.S. LNG Export Tracker, which monitors volumes delivered to export terminals via pipeline on a daily basis. Deliveries peaked at 7.30 Bcf/d on Nov. 10 and hit a low of 6.98 Bcf/d on Nov. 13, according to the tracker.
EIA noted that on Nov. 4, the 1,000th LNG cargo was shipped from the United States since Lower 48 exports began in February 2016. More than 3.42 Tcf has been exported as LNG from the country since exports began nearly four years ago, the agency said.
