How We Called The Record Hot Summer And Explosion In Nat Gas Prices

The last time I submitted an article on Seeking Alpha, natural gas (UNG)
prices were under pressure from the shut-down of the FreePort, Texas
LNG export facility. They were collapsing to below $6.00 a month or so
ago. However, I disclosed an overall bullish summer outlook for natural
gas prices based on what I expected would be one of the hottest
summers on record. You can see the headlines of one of my latest
newsletters. In addition, the severe western U.S. drought means the 2nd

futures surged more than 11% at one point on Tuesday to $9.75 per

EIA: US became the world’s largest LNG exporter in the first half of 2022

The United States became the world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG)
exporter during the first half of 2022, according to data from CEDIGAZ.
reported by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). Compared
with the second half of 2021, US LNG exports increased by 12% in the
first half of 2022, averaging 11.2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). US
LNG exports continued to grow for three reasons: increased LNG export
capacity, increased international natural gas and LNG prices, and
increased global demand, particularly in Europe. According to EIA
estimates, installed US LNG export capacity has expanded by 1.9 Bcf/d
nominal (2.1 Bcf/d peak) since November 2021. The capacity additions
included a sixth train at the Sabine Pass LNG, 18 new mid-scale
liquefaction trains at the Calcasieu Pass LNG, and increased… For
