    Over the last six months Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio)'s portfolio has been destroyed by the collapse in oil prices.

So with all these paper losses why in the world would Icahn make another $1 billion bet in the energy sector.

The company is a large natural gas producer that is in the middle of beginning to export liquid natural gas. Cheniere will be the first company to export liquefied natural gas in the United States. The company spent $16 billion to build its largest export terminal.
