US LNG producer Cheniere Energy delivered over 70% of its export cargoes to Europe during the first half of 2022 as buyers were hit with energy security fears.

In the first six months of this year, Cheniere exported 316 LNG cargoes, up from 272 in the same period of 2021.

Speaking on a second-quarter results call, Cheniere president and chief executive Jack Fusco said that at the end of the period, nearly 225 of those cargoes had landed in Europe, which is more than 70% of the company’s export cargoes produced in 2022.
