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

  • Cameron LNG began controlled shutdown Thursday as Hurricane Delta headed for the Louisiana coast with landfall expected Friday. Hackberry, LA, plant started ramping back up Sept. 27 after damage caused by Hurricane Laura. A “ride-out” team will remain on site during Delta. Feed gas to Cameron dropped from recent high of 650 MMcf/d to 45 MMcf/d Thursday.
  • Bespoke Weather Services: “We think this storm hits just slightly farther east, which would spare Cameron the worst, keeping the more violent core of the storm focused east of where Laura’s was. We likely see lower LNG volumes for a few more days, but on this track, reductions should be temporary.”
  • Sabine Pass LNG has activated a severe weather plan with a “limited ride-out crew” at Cameron, LA, site to manage operations, Cheniere Energy Inc. said. Feed gas to plant fell by more than 1 Bcf to about 3 Bcf Thursday.
  • Hurricane warning in effect from High Island, TX, to Morgan City, LA, said National Hurricane Center
