Clarification

Correction

The story “Sabine Pass Exports Reached New High in February” included an inaccurate count of the number of cargos sent from the Louisiana liquefied natural gas export terminal during January and February, as it failed to account for cargos with multiple destinations or contract terms. During each month 15 cargos were sent from the terminal. NGI regrets the error.
