U.S. LNG exports have expanded to the point they made up 7 percent of total U.S. natural gas production in July, the Energy Information Administration reported Monday.

Last month gas deliveries to LNG export facilities reached 6 billion cubic feet a day, as new export facilities come online along the Gulf Coast.

“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,” the report read. “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 2017 the United States has exported more gas than it consumes, both delivering liquefied gas via tanker overseas and through pipelines to Mexico and Canada.

Over the first seven months of this year, gas exports through LNG and to Mexico averaged 10 billion cubic feet a day, a 30 percent increase from last year.
