US weekly LNG exports down, Henry Hub slightly up

The US exported sixteen LNG cargoes in the week ending January 13 while feed gas deliveries to liquefaction plants averaged 10.8 billion cubic feet.

Compared to the last week, natural gas deliveries to US LNG export plants decreased some 0.2 Bcf/d while shipments dropped by five, EIA said in its 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, according to EIA.

As per the weekly shipments, five US terminals dispatched the sixteen cargoes during the week of January 7-13. The total capacity of LNG vessels carrying these cargoes is 59 Bcf.

This compares to twenty one cargo with the vessels’ capacity of 77 Bcf in the week before.

In addition, Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant sent seven shipments in the week under review while its Corpus Christi plant dispatched three cargoes

Furthermore, Cameron exported three cargoes of the fuel while the Freeport terminal shipped two cargoes during the observed week. Cove Point sent one shipment.

Compared to the previous week, the Henry Hub spot price traded within a relatively narrow range and rose 5¢ from $2.70/MMBtu last Wednesday to $2.75/MMBtu two days ago, EIA said.
