Compared to the last week, natural gas deliveries to US LNG export plants rose 0.09 Bcf/d while shipments dropped by three, EIA’s weekly natural gas report shows.

In addition, LNG pipeline receipts increased by 30% when compared to the same period last year, the agency said.

Looking at the weekly shipments, six US terminals dispatched the twenty-one cargoes during the week of April 1-7. The total capacity of LNG vessels carrying these cargoes is 76 Bcf.

This compares to twenty-four LNG cargoes with the vessels’ capacity of 87 Bcf in the week before.
