According to Bloomberg, sources with knowledge of the matter have said that Blackstone Group is considering selling its stake in Cheniere Energy Partners LP – a limited partnership created by Cheniere Energy Inc.

According to Bloomberg, the unnamed sources have said that Blackstone is currently working alongside an advisor on the potential sale, and is seeking a premium for its stake and marketing it to a small pool of infrastructure, pension and sovereign wealth funds.

Reportedly, this comes seven years after Blackstone agreed to invest approximately US$1.5 billion in the company. Blackstone is not under any pressure to sell, however, and may choose to keep the stake.
