Sabine Pass terminal wins FERC approval

LNG Industry,

Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. have received authorisation under Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act from FERC to site, construct and operate facilities for the liquefaction and export of domestically produced natural gas at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal located in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The order authorises the development of up to four modular LNG trains, although the initial phase of construction will only include two liquefaction trains.

"Obtaining approval from the FERC is one more milestone for our Liquefaction Project," said Charif Souki, Chairman and CEO. "We will now finalise the financing arrangements in order to commence construction of the first two LNG trains of our Liquefaction Project promptly."

Sabine Pass initiated FERC's National Environmental Policy Act pre-filing process for the Liquefaction Project in July 2010, and submitted an application to the FERC for authorization to site, construct and operate the Liquefaction Project in January 2011.
