U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports bounced back during the week ending Feb. 26 as 19 vessels departed carrying 69 Bcf, according to the Energy Information Administration.

That compares to 14 ships carrying 49 Bcf that left the prior week, when foggy conditions along the Gulf Coast and terminal maintenance impacted operations, including feed gas deliveries.

Genscape Inc. said Tuesday pipeline deliveries to U.S. export terminals have dropped again to 7.19 Bcf/d, the “lowest mark in 18 days and the second lowest level in 45 days.” The firm said deliveries to Cheniere Energy Inc.’s Sabine Pass facility, the largest of its kind in the country, were down to 2.6 Bcf/d on Tuesday, the lowest level since mid-January. Genscape said “monitors detected disruptions to operations at a couple of trains” there.

NGI’s U.S. LNG Export Tracker showed a similar drop in feed gas, with volumes dipping below the 7 Bcf/d mark from a high of nearly 9 Bcf/d on Saturday.
