US weekly LNG exports flat, Henry Hub climbs

The US exported twenty-two LNG cargoes in the week ending December 16 while feed gas deliveries to liquefaction plants averaged 11 billion cubic feet.

Compared to the last week, natural gas deliveries to US LNG export plants decreased some 0.2 Bcf/d while shipments were flat, EIA said in its weekly natural gas report.

EIA noted that LNG pipeline receipts into Sempra Energy’s Cameron LNG were briefly disrupted on December 15 after a utility plant trip knocked the facility’s three liquefaction units offline, forcing Sempra to restart all three trains.

Flows into Cameron LNG totaled about 1.2 Bcf/d on December 15 compared with more than 2.1 Bcf/d in the days before the disruption.

Currently, the United States 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 twenty-two cargoes during the week December 10-16. The total capacity of LNG vessels carrying these cargoes is 78 Bcf.

This compares to twenty-two cargoes with the vessels’ capacity of 81 Bcf in the week before.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant sent seven shipments in the week under review while its Corpus Christi plant dispatched four.

Additionally, Freeport dispatched five cargoes of the fuel while the Cameron terminal shipped four cargoes during the observed week. Cove Point sent two shipments.

Compared to the previous week, the Henry Hub spot price increased from $2.45/MMBtu last Wednesday to $2.67/MMBtu two days ago.
