US exported ten LNG cargoes in the week ending September 23 with feed gas deliveries to liquefaction plants down to 6 billion cubic feet.
Feed gas deliveries to US plants dropped to nearly 4 Bcf/d on Tuesday as Tropical Storm Beta moved through the Gulf of Mexico, disrupting LNG tanker movement. Compared to the last week, feed gas deliveries dropped 1 Bcf/d, EIA said in its weekly natural gas report.
Furthermore, Dominion Energy said that its Cove Point LNG export facility in Maryland began annual maintenance on September 2 while Sempra’s Cameron facility is still offline amid challenges in restoring power after Hurricane Laura.
As per the LNG shipments, four US terminals dispatched the ten cargoes during the week September 17-September 23. The total capacity of LNG vessels carrying these cargoes is 37 Bcf, EIA said citing Marine Traffic shipping data.
This compares to eleven LNG cargoes with the vessels’ capacity of 41 Bcf in the week before.
