Daily feedgas flows to U.S. LNG export facilities rebounded to 11 Bcf/D today. It has been nearly a month since feedgas flows were at this level.
U.S. LNG exports have been in the 9-10 Bcf/D range as a result of Springtime maintenance at different export facilities and nearby pipelines since the beginning of May.
Maintenance on the Creole Trail pipeline wrapped up late yesterday night. The pipeline is an essential gas supplier to Sabine Pass.
Construction commenced three days ago to provide electrical upgrades at one of its compressor stations. Sabine Pass feedgas flows are already over 1 Bcf from flows recorded yesterday.
As we head out of the maintenance season, returning flows may push LNG exports out of the current 9-10 Bcf/D range it has settled in.
