What makes for winners in the Texas wind power boom?

John Dudley lives in Comanche, Texas, and wears a couple of hats: He’s a cattle rancher and a wind farmer. We met on his 20,000 acres in the Texas hill country. His land holds more than half of the 87 turbines that make up the vast Logan’s Gap Wind Farm. His brown Herefords roam among the giant stalks, as they spin up to 40 stories overhead.
The Netherlands is to expected receive a cargo from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export terminal in Louisiana, the first ever US LNG cargo produced from shale gas to reach the country.
The 140,000-cbm Arctic Discoverer is scheduled to arrive at the Dutch Gate terminal in the port of Rotterdam around June 7, according to shipping data.
The vessel loaded a cargo at Sabine Pass and left the liquefaction facility on Sunday, the data shows.
LNG World News contacted Gate to comment on the shipment. We will update the article once we receive a response.
Many predicted a “flood” of U.S. LNG to Europe but only a small number of these cargoes landed in Europe, better said in the southern part of the continent.
Only Italy, Malta, Spain, Portugal and Turkey received Sabine Pass cargoes since February last year when the plant started shipping the fuel.
The bulk of these cargoes went to Latin America, Africa and Asia.
However, currently there are only three liquefaction trains in operation at the Sabine Pass facility and in the lower 48 states.
The U.S. is expected to become the world’s third-largest LNG supplier by 2020 with an export capacity of 60 million mt coming from five terminals located along the Gulf Coast.
