US natural gas exports via pipelines or liquefied natural gas facilities have been on a declining trajectory since April due to the coronavirus pandemic, but net gas exports were still higher in the first six months of 2020 compared with the same period of 2019, according to the Energy Information Administration. US gas pipeline exports to Mexico rose 4% year-on-year to an average 5.1 billion cubic feet per day in the first half, while LNG shipments were up 98% to 7.9 Bcf/d during the first three months of 2020 compared with a year earlier, but more than halved to 3.6 Bcf/d in June.
