US LNG exports stay low, Cameron still offline

US exported six LNG cargoes in the week ending September 9 with feed gas deliveries to liquefaction plants rising to 4.6 billion cubic feet due to Sabine Pass restart.

Cheniere said Wednesday it resumed normal operations at its 25 mtpa Sabine Pass liquefaction plant in Louisiana following Hurricane Laura.

Feedgas deliveries at the terminal averaged 2.8 Bcf/d on Wednesday, implying 93% baseload capacity utilization, according to data by S&P Global Platts.

On the other side, damaged electric transmission infrastructure near Sempra’s 12 mtpa Cameron LNG plant could keep the plant offline for some time.

This facility has not received any feedgas deliveries since August 25 after suspending operations and implementing a controlled shutdown.

The Energy Information Agency agency said in its weekly gas natural gas report that three US terminals dispatched the six cargoes during the week September 3-September 9.

The total capacity of the LNG vessels carrying these cargoes is 21 bcf, the same as last week, EIA said citing Marine Traffic shipping data.

Cheniere’s Corpus Christi plant dispatched three cargoes while the Freeport facility shipped two cargoes during the week under review.

Furthermore, the Dominion Cove Point terminal also shipped one cargo of the fuel.

Compared to the previous week, the Henry Hub spot price remained flat at $2.19 per million British thermal units.
