Cheniere Energy Inc is engaged in LNG-related businesses. It owns and operates the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Louisiana through its ownership interest in and management agreements with Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P.

Cheniere Energy is a Texas-based energy company that owns and operates a liquefied natural gas terminal through ownership interest and management agreements with subsidiaries. Cheniere's operations are divided between its LNG terminal business and its LNG and natural gas marketing business.

The marketing business transports LNG cargo to Cheniere's terminals and maximizes margins on the cargo.
