Cheniere Energy Inc, a Delaware corporation, is a Houston-based energy company primarily engaged in LNG-related businesses. The Company owns and operates the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Louisiana through its 59.5% ownership interest in and management agreements with Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P, which is a publicly traded partnership that it created in 2007. It also owns and operates the Creole Trail Pipeline, which interconnects the Sabine Pass LNG terminal with natural gas markets in North America. The Sabine Pass LNG terminal is located on the Sabine Pass deep water shipping channel less than four miles from the Gulf Coast. The Sabine Pass LNG terminal has regasification facilities owned by Cheniere Partners' wholly owned subsidiary, Sabine Pass LNG, L.P., that includes existing infrastructure of five LNG storage tanks with capacity of approximately16.9 Bcfe, two docks that can accommodate vessels of up to 265,000 cubic meters and vaporizers with regasification capacity of approximately 4.0 Bcf/d. The Company's partners are developing natural gas liquefaction facilities at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal adjacent to the existing regasification facilities through its wholly owned subsidiary, Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC. The Company also owns and operates the Creole Trail Pipeline, which interconnects the Sabine Pass LNG terminal with natural gas markets in North America. Approximately one-half of the LNG receiving capacity at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal is contracted to two multinational energy companies. One of its subsidiaries, Cheniere Marketing, LLC is marketing LNG and natural gas on its own behalf and on behalf of Cheniere Partners, in an effort to monetize the other half of the LNG capacity at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal during construction of the Liquefaction Project. LNG is natural gas that, through a refrigeration process, has been cooled to a liquid state, which occupies a volume that is approximately 1/600th of its gaseous state. The liquefaction of natural gas into LNG allows it to be shipped economically from areas of the world where natural gas is abundant and inexpensive to produce to other areas where natural gas demand and infrastructure exist to justify economically the use of LNG. LNG is transported using large oceangoing LNG tankers specifically constructed for this purpose. LNG receiving terminals offload LNG from LNG tankers, store the LNG prior to processing, heat the LNG to return it to a gaseous state and deliver the resulting natural gas into pipelines for transportation to market. The Company's business activities are conducted by two operating segments: LNG terminal business; and LNG and natural gas marketing business. The Company's pipelines faces competition from other interstate and/or intrastate pipelines that connect with its LNG terminals. Its LNG operations and construction projects are subject to extensive regulation under federal, state and local statutes, rules, regulations and laws.

This has been my biggest gainer for the past two years despite the F rating by Chuck and other advisories. It's been too stable to warrant a tight stop, and I'd never sell out anyway. The company is one of the very few licensed to export LNG where it is critically needed.
