China Now 3rd Largest Importer of US LNG after 64.2% Surge
CRANBURY, N.J. (DTN) -- China moved to become the third largest importer of
U.S. liquified natural gas in April after deliveries spiked 18.3 billion cubic
feet or 64.2% from March to 46.8 Bcf, according to data released this afternoon
by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Oil and Natural Gas.
DOE data shows China imported 550 Bcf of U.S. produced LNG since February
2016, when the first LNG cargo departed from the Lower 48 states, having
offloaded 159 cargos during the more than five-year period, while accounting
for 7.5% of total U.S. LNG exports.
