US gas use slips 3% as all sectors report lower demand

Natural gas use in the U.S. slipped 3% during the week ended Jan. 15 due to lower demand across all covered sectors, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration's latest "Natural Gas Weekly Update" released Jan. 16.

Gas consumption in the U.S. averaged 90.6 Bcf/d for the week, down from 93.4 Bcf/d a week ago. Power sector use averaged 26.3 Bcf/d, slipping from 27.2 Bcf/d a week prior. Residential and commercial demand came in at 39.9 Bcf/d, down from 41.5 Bcf/d last week. Industrial demand was 24.5 Bcf/d, compared to 24.7 Bcf/d during the previous week.

Total demand, which includes Mexico exports, pipeline fuel use or losses, and LNG pipeline receipts, averaged 111.5 Bcf/d during the week ended Jan. 15, down from 114.0 Bcf/d a week ago.

Fourteen LNG vessels with a capacity of 51 Bcf left the country between Jan. 9-15, the EIA said, citing data compiled by Bloomberg. Between Jan. 2-8, 19 vessels with a capacity of 68 Bcf left the U.S.

Of the 14 vessels, seven came from Cheniere Energy Inc.'s Sabine Pass terminal in Louisiana, two came from Cheniere's Corpus Christi terminal in Texas, two came from Dominion Energy Inc.'s Cove Point LNG facility in Maryland, two came from the Cameron LNG LLC terminal in Louisiana, and one came from the Freeport LNG Development LP terminal in Texas.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in a Dec. 30, 2019, letter order authorized another natural gas liquefaction train to go into service at Kinder Morgan Inc.'s Elba Island LNG export terminal in Georgia. The terminal exported its first cargo Dec. 13, 2019, and is commissioning the remaining Units 5 through 10 at the facility, which are scheduled to come online by mid-2020, the EIA said.

Total supply for the week to Jan. 15 averaged 99.1 Bcf/d, down from 100.4 Bcf/d a week ago. Marketed and dry production averaged 108.6 Bcf/d and 95.7 Bcf/d, respectively, slipping from 108.8 Bcf/d and 95.9 Bcf/d a week prior. Net imports from Canada came in at 3.3 Bcf/d, down from 4.4 Bcf/d the week before.

During the week ended Jan. 10, net withdrawals from storage were 109 Bcf, down from the five-year average pull of 184 Bcf but above the 82-Bcf withdrawal during the same period a year ago. Working gas stocks totaled 3,039 Bcf, up by 149 Bcf from the five-year average and 494 Bcf higher than a year ago.
