A roundup of news and commentary from NGI’s LNG Insight

  • Cameron LNG confirmed Thursday that one of its three liquefaction trains is offline for maintenance. Feed gas deliveries declined from about 2 Bcf/d on Sunday to 1.4 Bcf/d on Thursday. A spokesperson said work on the train should be completed by the end of the week. 
  • Freeport LNG also reported a brief outage on Wednesday, when the terminal was forced to shut down all three of its trains after a lightning strike caused a temporary power surge, the company said in a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The outage lasted about six hours before the trains were restarted.
  • Overall U.S. feed gas deliveries dipped below 11 Bcf/d this week on the outages as overseas prices have reached unseasonable highs amid strong demand for American and global LNG exports. 
  • Tellurian Inc. Chairman Charif Souki said this week at the Citi 2021 Global Energy & Utilities Virtual Conference  that he expects the proposed Driftwood LNG project in Louisiana to sell 12-15 million metric tons/year (mmty) to offtakers in the coming weeks. Tellurian, which has only signed on Total SE to take 2.5 mmty, is working toward a final investment decision on the project.
