Exports of LNG produced from US Shale gas have continued to increase and reached a new record in November. Sabine Pass LNG has single handedly transformed the landscape of US LNG export in addition to paving way for other future LNG projects.

According to the EIA, exports from Sabine Pass began to increase in September 2017 as Train 4 ramped up to full production. The overall capacity of operation across four trains was 96%. 

Sabine Pass Liquefaction plant is located in Cameron Parish on the US Gulf Coast near the Louisiana-Texas border. Currently the plant consists of four operational Trains with the fifth train under construction. When all six trains are complete Sabine Pass LNG would have a staggering capacity to produce up to 24 million tons of LNG per annum
