US weekly LNG exports climb to 26 shipments

US liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports rose in the week ending February 14 compared to the week before, according to the Energy Information Administration.

The agency said in its weekly natural gas report that 26 LNG carriers departed the US plants between February 8 and February 14, two vessels more compared to the week before.

Moreover, the total capacity of these LNG vessels is 90 Bcf, the EIA said, citing shipping data provided by Bloomberg Finance.

The agency said that most of the increase in South Texas occurred at Cheniere’s Corpus Christi LNG terminal, where natural gas receipts increased by 28 percent (0.5 Bcf/d) week over week after declining by a similar amount the previous report week.

Natural gas deliveries to terminals outside the Gulf Coast were essentially unchanged at 1.2 Bcf/d.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant shipped eight cargoes and the company’s Corpus Christi facility sent three shipments during the week under review.
