    First LNG cargo in February 2016 went to Brazil. It was what is referred to as hot, meaning it had a high ethane content and only certain import terminals could take it. 26 cargoes as of Sept. 6 had been delivered from Cheniere s Sabine Pass (Port Arthur, TX) with more than 57 percent of the total exports going to South America. A recent development that should help U.S. LNG exporters going forward is the July 2016 opening of the expanded Panama Canal, which will accommodate 90 percent of the world’s LNG tankers. Only the Q-Flex and Q-Max ships will not be able to transit the expanded canal.

    By the end of 2016, Cheniere s Sabine Pass Trains 1 & 2 will be in operation. By 2017, another three trains from Cheniere and Dominion s Cove Point Maryland terminal are expected to start up. By the end of 2018, five new trains could come online from Cameron, Freeport and Corpus Christi. Another four new trains are due online in 2019 from Freeport, Corpus Christi and Sabine Pass.

    Cheniere Energy s Sabine Pass in Louisiana is the first LNG export plant in the Lower 48 states and has shipped to 11 different countries in the first six months in operation. Overall, there have been over 25 tankers of LNG shipped from the Sabine Pass terminal. And on 22 August, U.S. LNG reached the most vital incremental market of them all, arriving at the Chinese port of Yantian in Shenzhen near Hong Kong. This was the first LNG tanker to transit the newly expanded Panama Canal connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

    Globally, the annual capacity of liquefaction plants will increase by about 40 per cent to around 60 Bcf/d by 2021. The global economy is growing though, by some $3 trillion in real GDP per year, and this will continually drive up gas demand. Natural gas, after all, is the second largest energy source in the developed world at 28 per cent, and gas is a rapidly rising 21 per cent of all energy in the developing world, compared to just 13 per cent a decade ago.

    Last, but not least. This article states that Port of Houston is the only U.S. port that exports more than it imports. Commodities include propane, butane, LNG

      March 23, 2017 Hyundai will build first LNG-powered aframax tankers. Fueled with LNG, these tankers will transport crude oil for Sovcomflot, the Russian state-owned shipping company. Delivery of the four 250m long ships is planned for 3Q 2018 to be used by SHELL.

      By running on LNG, the Ice-Class IA tankers can emit 90 percent less SOx, 80 percent less NOx, and 15 percent less CO2 - satisfying the demand for ships which meet tightening environmental regulations.

          CBI, headquartered near Houston TX, is presently building LNG export terminals 100 miles or so in each direction from Houston in Freeport Texas and Hackberry (Cameron) Louisiana. CBI has served the LNG industry for 50 years. Its projects located worldwide include liquefaction plants (export), regasification terminals (import); peak shaving (creating LNG utilizing pressure drop at ends of long distance pipelines); and storage tanks. Projects include more than 200 LNG storage tanks throughout the world

          CBI had complete design-build responsibility for the PERU LNG export facility, the first baseload liquefaction plant in South America, which was completed in 2010.
