U.S. liquefied natural gas exports quadrupled in 2017

U.S. exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) reached 1.94 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in 2017, up from 0.5 Bcf/d in 2016. As LNG exports increased, shipments went to more destinations. U.S. LNG exports in 2017, all of which originated from Louisiana’s Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal, reached 25 countries.

Electricity from natural gas surpasses coal for first time, but just for one month

July 31, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, In April, traditionally the month when total electricity demand is lowest, U.S. generation of electricity fueled by natural gas exceeded coal-fired generation for the first time since the start of EIA’s monthly generation data in 1973. However, EIA’s latest shows that coal’s generation share once again exceeded […]

Natural gas salt-facility storage serves special gas market needs
