Freeport LNG is now accepting more than 1 Bcf/d of feed gas, helping send total deliveries to U.S. export plants above 14 Bcf/d over the weekend for the first time ever.

The Freeport terminal on the upper Texas coast has been ramping back up after federal regulators authorized partial service to resume at the facility last month. That cleared the way for two liquefaction trains to come back online following a June explosion at the plant. Freeport LNG Development LP is still awaiting approval to restart one more train. 

U.S. feed gas demand hit 14.13 Bcf/d on Saturday (March 4) and Sunday (March 5), surpassing the previous record of 13.75 Bcf/d set in March 2022.
