U.S. LNG exports increased in the week ending June 2, with 21 cargoes leaving port, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reports.

That compares to 18 in the previous seven-day period, the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported on June 3. During the two 7-day periods before that, exports remained flat at 21 cargoes. Exports reached a 30-day high of 22 during the week ending May 5.

Between May 27 and June 2, seven vessels laden with LNG left the Sabine Pass terminal in Louisiana, while four each left from Cameron and Freeport, three from Corpus Christi, two from the Cove Point facility off Maryland and one from Elba Island off the coast of Georgia.

Combined, total export volumes reached 76bn ft3. During the previous week, 67bn ft3 of LNG left US ports.
