* Elba Island and Boston terminals also taking cargoes
* US LNG sendout off from January levels
NEW YORK, March 17 (Reuters) - The U.S. Cove Point liquefied natural gas terminal in Maryland is expected to receive a cargo of LNG on Thursday from Egypt, according to AISLive ship tracker on Reuters.
The Seri Angkasa tanker was last seen on Wednesday nearing the terminal, the data showed. It is expected to be one of about five cargoes heading there this month.
Meanwhile, the Celestine River tanker was seen heading toward the U.S. Elba Island terminal in Georgia from Trinidad, expected on March 24, according to AIS.
The SCF Polar tanker arrived at the Everett terminal in Boston on Tuesday.
While imports are currently above last year’s levels, sendout from U.S. terminals has slipped in recent weeks with milder weather and lower gas prices.
However, imports are expected to rise in April and May as the European and Asian winters end, leaving more volumes for the United States to absorb. (Reporting by Edward McAllister; Editing by Gary Hill)
