US sees monthly record in natgas deliveries to LNG export facilities

Baku, Azerbaijan, Aug.20

By Leman Zeynalova - Trend:

Natural gas deliveries to US facilities producing liquefied natural gas (LNG) for export set a monthly record in July 2019, averaging 6 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d)—7 percent of the total U.S. dry natural gas production—according to data from OPIS PointLogic Energy, Trend reports.

Reportedly, in the first seven months of 2019, natural gas feedstock deliveries to LNG export facilities have been the fastest growing among all U.S. natural gas consumption sectors.

The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates that U.S. LNG exports set new records in June and July 2019 at 4.8 Bcf/d and 5.2 Bcf/d, respectively, based on tanker loadings data from Bloomberg L.P.

Natural gas feedstock deliveries to LNG export terminals averaged 5.5 Bcf/d in June and 6.0 Bcf/d in July, implying that about 15 percent of the natural gas feedstock sent to LNG facilities was used as fuel in the liquefaction process.

In the first half of 2019, two new liquefaction trains came online: Cameron LNG Train 1 in Louisiana in May and Corpus Christi LNG Train 2 in Texas in June. Current total U.S. LNG export capacity stands at 5.4 Bcf/d across four facilities and nine liquefaction trains.

Two new LNG export facilities—Elba Island LNG in Georgia and Freeport LNG in Texas—plan to place their first trains in service in the next two months. Since July, both facilities have been receiving small amounts of natural gas feedstock deliveries in preparation for LNG production.

Production of LNG at Elba Island was expected to begin in May 2019, but it has been delayed in part because of unevenness in cryogenic temperatures in the moveable modular liquefaction system (MMLS) units, which are using a new technology. Kinder Morgan, the developer of Elba Island LNG, stated that 4 of the 10 MMLS units (or trains) are complete and will be placed in service in the next few months.

The first train at Freeport LNG is scheduled to come online in September 2019, and the remaining two trains arescheduled for the second and third quarters of 2020, respectively. Current plans are to complete construction and bring the remaining trains at Elba Island, Corpus Christi, and Cameron online in 2020 and 2021.
