• Genscape Inc.: Corpus Christi Pipeline  maintenance scheduled March 31-April 3 on Sinton compressor station. Work will restrict up to 700 MMcf/d, but "ample operational capacity" exists on Tennessee and Kinder Morgan Tejas pipelines to maintain feed gas to Corpus Christi LNG export facility.

 

  • Cheniere Energy Inc., which produces and sells LNG, is looking to buy six cargoes for delivery to Europe later this year in a rare move that suggests the United States’ No. 1 exporter is probing the market amid oversupply and possibly considering production cuts, Bloomberg reports.

 

  • For North America, “The global glut of LNG is expected to keep natural gas prices depressed even as LNG exports decline,” Wood Mackenzie said Tuesday. “The further impact for coal-to-gas switch is muted by the already low gas prices having left little additional switching capacity” in markets overseas.
