OPIS PointLogic Energy data said that natural gas deliveries to US facilities producing liquefied natural gas for export set a monthly record in July 2019, averaging 6.0 billion cubic feet per day 7% of the total US.dry natural gas production. In the first seven months of 2019, natural gas feedstock deliveries to LNG export facilities have been the fastest growing among all US natural gas consumption sectors. Natural gas delivered by pipelines to Mexico and to US LNG export facilities reached 10.9 Bcf/d in July and averaged 10.0 billion cubic feet per day in the first seven months of this year, 30% more than in the same period of 2018. The United States has been exporting more natural gas than it imports on an annual basis since 2017, and EIA expects that US natural gas exports will continue to increase as new LNG facilities come online.

EIA estimates that US LNG exports set new records in June and July 2019 at 4.8 Bcf/d and 5.2 billion cubic feet per day, respectively, based on tanker loadings data from Bloomberg LP Natural gas feedstock deliveries to LNG export terminals averaged 5.5 billion cubic feet per day in June and 6.0 billion cubic feet per day in July, implying that about 15% of the natural gas feedstock sent to LNG facilities was used as fuel in the liquefaction process.

In the H1 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. Current total US LNG export capacity stands at 5.4 billion cubic feet per day across four facilities and nine liquefaction trains.
