US weekly LNG exports rise, Henry Hub down

The US exported twenty-two LNG cargoes in the week ending December 9 while feed gas deliveries to liquefaction plants averaged 11.2 billion cubic feet.

Compared to the last week, natural gas deliveries to US LNG export plants increased some 0.89 Bcf/d while shipments rose by four cargoes, EIA said in its weekly natural gas report.

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, six US terminals dispatched the twenty-two cargoes during the week December 3-9. The total capacity of LNG vessels carrying these cargoes is 81 Bcf.

This compares to eighteen cargoes with the vessels’ capacity of 65 Bcf in the week before.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant sent eight shipments in the week under review while its Corpus Christi plant dispatched five. The latter also shipped its first commissioning cargo from the third liquefaction unit this week.

Additionally, Freeport dispatched five cargoes of the fuel while the Cameron terminal shipped two cargoes during the observed week.

Cove Point and Elba Island sent one shipment, each.

Compared to the previous week, the Henry Hub spot price dropped from $2.70/MMBtu last Wednesday to $2.45/MMBtu two days ago.
