US LNG exports climb, Henry Hub drops

The US exported twenty LNG cargoes in the week ending January 20 while feed gas deliveries to liquefaction plants averaged 10.9 billion cubic feet.

Compared to the last week, natural gas deliveries to US LNG export plants increased some 0.08 Bcf/d while shipments rose by four, according to EIA’s weekly natural gas report.

Currently, the US has fifteen standard-size LNG trains and ten small-scale moveable modular liquefaction system units in operation across six export facilities.

These facilities have a combined LNG export capacity of 9.5 Bcf/d baseload and 10.8 Bcf/d peak.

Looking at the weekly shipments in detail, five US terminals dispatched the twenty cargoes during the week of January 14-20. The total capacity of LNG vessels carrying these cargoes is 72 Bcf.

This compares to sixteen cargoes with the vessels’ capacity of 59 Bcf in the week before.

Moreover, Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant sent seven shipments in the week under review while its Corpus Christi plant dispatched four cargoes.

Cameron also exported four cargoes of the fuel while the Freeport terminal shipped three cargoes during the observed week. Cove Point sent two shipments.

Compared to the previous week, the Henry Hub spot price fell from a high of $2.75/MMBtu last Wednesday to a low of $2.42/MMBtu two days ago , EIA said.
