Netherlands tops list of importers from Cheniere LNG terminal in Texas
Almost a year after Cheniere Energy began exporting LNG from its terminal near Corpus Christi, Texas, the Netherlands has emerged as the biggest importer from the facility, data shows.
The trend is further evidence of the importance Europe is playing taking US cargoes and helping to rebalance the market.Of the top 10 countries that have imported the most LNG from the Texas facility, five are in Europe. Countries there also have been absorbing a meaningful amount of LNG from Cheniere's other export facility, at Sabine Pass in Louisiana.
As of Wednesday, 70 cargoes, with volumes totaling 226 Bcf of LNG, had been shipped to date since December 2018 from Corpus Christi Liquefaction, 10 of which landed in the Netherlands, data shows. Argentina has taken the second most number of e Texas facility, at seven, followed by Spain at 6 and Mexico and Italy each at 5. Nine cargoes remained on the water as of Wednesday.
Relatively low gas prices have spurred increased gas-fired power generation in parts of Europe, including Spain and Germany. That, in turn, has supported robust demand in the region for LNG imports.
