Liquefied natural gas exports from the U.S. decreased for the second week running, according to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

EIA stated in its weekly report that six LNG vessels, five from Sabine Pass and one from Corpus Christi, departed from the United States between March 21 and March 27.

The six vessels held a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 22.3 bcf. Like last week, data for Cove Point LNG exports was unavailable.

The Administration added in its report Cameron LNG in Louisiana was approved to introduce hazardous fluids and feed gas to fuel gas systems and commission wet flare systems as part of on-going commissioning activities for Train 1. The train is expected to enter service in second-quarter 2019.

EIA also said that Kinder Morgan, the developer of Elba Island LNG liquefaction facility in Georgia, announced that the start-up of the first train at the facility had been postponed until late April 2019.
