US LNG exports rise, but Cameron still shut

US exported eleven LNG cargoes in the week ending September 16 with feed gas deliveries to liquefaction plants rising to 7 billion cubic feet.

Feed gas deliveries to US plants continued to rise following the restart of Cheniere’s Sabine Pass terminal but Sempra’s Cameron facility could still stay offline for weeks amid challenges in restoring power after Hurricane Laura.

Compared to the last week, feed gas deliveries increased 2.4 Bcf/d. They reached a high of 7.5 Bcf/d on September 13, the highest level since early May, the Energy Information Agency agency said in its weekly gas natural gas report.

As per the LNG shipments, four US terminals dispatched the eleven cargoes during the week September 10-September 16. The total capacity of LNG vessels carrying these cargoes is 41 Bcf, EIA said citing Marine Traffic shipping data.

This compares to six LNG cargoes with the vessels’ capacity of 21 Bcf in the week before.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant sent six LNG cargoes in the week under review while its Corpus Christi plant dispatched two cargoes.

Futhermore, the Freeport facility also shipped two cargoes while the Dominion Cove Point terminal dispatched one cargo of the fuel.

Compared to the previous week, the Henry Hub spot price fell from $2.19/MMBtu last week to $2.06/MMBtu this Wednesday after reaching a low of $1.94/MMBtu on Friday.
