US LNG Exports

Updates

June 11, 2017: see first comment; reader doesn't understand the problem. I agree with the reader.

US natural gas boom could snarl traffic at one of America's busiest ports -- Bloomberg.
  • Houston Ship Channel prone to backups in bad weather
  • US LNG exports at record high
  • Panama Canal, at a cost of $5.3 billion, was expanded to accommodate the new traffic
  • approx 20 US LNG export terminals already approved or proposed for the Gulf Coast, more shipsare on the way
  • it would be nice to have more export terminals on east and west coast but widely opposed by local populations
Houston Chronicle has more in-depth article on size / activity of Port of Houston, as well as all the activity going on at smaller ports, including Port of Brownsville, Texas; and, Portland, Texas. At Brownsville:
... there's about $43 billion in projects in the works at the Port of Brownsville, including an LEED-certified steel mill, a pipeline that will cross into Mexico, and three liquefied natural gas plants. The port is also working to win Congressional approval to deepen its ship channel, from 42 feet to 52.
At Portland (Texas):
One of the biggest single projects is Cheniere's new 2,000-acre, $13-billion facility here in Portland. Over 4,000 construction workers are erecting a maze of steel beams, shiny stainless pipes and towering cement tanks, as well as two white-concrete export docks on the coast. The ship berths are almost fully dredged. And the company has a contract on adjacent land that could further expand its LNG production capacity.
Oilprice expands on all the activity along the US Gulf Coast. It's more of the same, capturing some of the data points made above as well as data points made by RBN Energy over the past year.
