US LNG Facilities: A Closer Look
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a popular commodity these days. According to a new report from the International Association of Liquefied Natural Gas Importers (GIIGNL), global LNG trade increased 10% from 2016 to 2017, the largest single-year increase in 7 years. Much of the global LNG supply comes from the US, where production from trains commissioned in recent years has ramped up and new trains are scheduled to come on line.
The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates an additional 6.05 Bcf/D of new liquefaction capacity in the US by 2021 on top of the 3.5 Bcf/D already in operation at Sabine Pass and Cove Point. The EIA pointed to the Elba Island liquefaction project in Georgia—which is expected to commission the first 6 of 10 small modular trains—along with new trains along the coast of the US Gulf of Mexico like Cameron, Freeport, and Corpus Christi as developments that should boost capacity over the next 3 years.
The tables show the current status of various liquefaction facilities in the US that are either operational, under construction, or fully approved by the US Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
