Feedgas to the three currently operational LNG projects in the US topped 5.00 Bcf for the first time on December 22, and subsequently climbed to 5.28 Bcf on the day before Christmas.

Preliminary feedgas nominations for December 27 remained elevated at 5.12 Bcf.

In comparison, the average daily gas uptake for November was 4.25 Bcf.

The daily milestone comes as Cheniere ramps up the first train from its Corpus Christi LNG plant, which has a nameplate capacity of 4.5 million mt/year, and exported its first cargo earlier this month and a second cargo a day ago.

The nameplate capacity at Cheniere's Sabine Pass LNG plant now stands at 12.75 million mt/year, with 3.75 million mt of that coming from Train 5, which started up earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Dominion's 5.25 million mt/year Cove Point LNG has been producing consistently since its start up in the first half of the year.
