About Cheniere
North America's LNG Gateway™

Cheniere Energy, Inc. is developing a platform of three, 100%-owned, onshore liquefied natural gas, or LNG, receiving terminals along the U.S. Gulf Coast. The three terminals will have an aggregate send-out capacity of 9.9 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. Cheniere plans to leverage its terminal platform by pursuing related LNG business opportunities both upstream and downstream of the terminals.

Cheniere Marketing, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cheniere Energy, Inc. was created in 2005 to commercialize Cheniere's network of LNG receiving capacity. Through the Cheniere network, the company can provide a highly reliable and valued service. Cheniere Marketing intends to purchase LNG from international suppliers, arrange the transportation of LNG to Cheniere's network of LNG terminals, utilize its reserved capacity to revaporize LNG, arrange the transportation of revaporized natural gas through affiliate and other interconnected pipelines, and sell natural gas to buyers in the North American market. Cheniere Marketing also expects to enter into U.S. natural gas purchase and sale transactions as part of its marketing activities.

Cheniere is also the founder of and holds a 30% limited partner interest in a fourth LNG receiving terminal project, participates in an LNG shipping venture, and operates an oil and gas exploration company in the shallow waters of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

Cheniere is based in Houston, Texas, with offices in Johnson Bayou, Louisiana, and Paris, France. The company’s common stock is listed on the American Stock Exchange under the symbol: LNG.

Cheniere LNG Terminals

Cheniere is among the leading companies in North America strategically pursuing the development of LNG receiving terminals. The Company is developing a network of three onshore LNG receiving terminals and related natural gas pipelines along the U.S. Gulf Coast. The company gained an early-mover advantage by identifying sites as early as 1999 and continues to remain at the forefront of U.S. LNG terminal development and construction.

Cheniere's terminal sites are among the best in North America because these sites have the following critical features:

Deep water channels and large acreage positions with proximity to open water
Substantial local natural gas consumption & existing industrial complexes
Close to major interstate and intrastate pipelines
Local governments and communities are familiar with and supportive of the energy

The Sabine Pass, Corpus Christi and Creole Trail LNG receiving facilities are among the largest proposed LNG receiving terminals in North America, each with over 600 acres of land under its control and 4.0, 2.6, and 3.3 Bcf/d of send-out capacity, respectively. By operating the terminals as a network, Cheniere expects its customers will benefit from reliability, optionality, and flexibility not possible with single terminal operators. Multiple receiving sites will improve reliability during weather and maintenance interruptions. With 3 ports, 6 unloading docks and up to 13 storage tanks in the network, the company will have multiple options for flexible landing and market optimization.

Cheniere's premier sites, its community focused approach, experienced team and anticipated low construction and operating costs offer the company sustainable competitive advantages in bringing natural gas to the North American market

Cheniere Energy, Inc., through its subsidiaries, engages in the development, construction, ownership, and operation of onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminals and natural gas pipelines along the Gulf Coast of the United States. It develops LNG receiving terminal projects on Sabine Pass LNG in western Cameron Parish, Louisiana on the Sabine Pass Channel; Corpus Christi LNG near Corpus Christi, Texas; Creole Trail LNG at the mouth of the Calcasieu Channel in central Cameron Parish, Louisiana; and Freeport LNG on Quintana Island near Freeport, Texas. The company also engages in oil and natural gas exploration and development activities in the Gulf of Mexico. As of December 31, 2007, it had proved developed reserves of approximately 8,869 barrels of oil and 1,259,933 thousand cubic feet of gas. The company was founded in 1983 and is based in Houston, Texas.

(Founder, General Partner, and 91% Limited Partner)

Corpus Christi LNG Terminal
Corpus Christi LNG is located on 612 acres on the northern coast of the Corpus Christi Bay, along the La Quinta Ship Channel, a deepwater ship channel dredged to 45 feet. The terminal will be located 14.3 nautical miles from the open water and 16 nautical miles from the outer buoy. The terminal design is almost identical to the first phase of Sabine Pass LNG, with two berths large enough to accommodate the QMax class vessel, one of the largest vessels in the industry.

The terminal is currently under construction and will be built in two phases. Phase 1 will have 10.1 Bcf of LNG storage in three tanks, each with an LNG capacity of 160,000 m3, and a maximum continuous regasification rate of 2.6 Bcf/d. Phase 2 will be built in stages. The first stage of Phase 2 will include the addition of a fourth and fifth storage tank, additional vaporizers that will bring the maximum continuous regasification rate up to 4.0 Bcf/d with a peak sendout capacity of 4.3 Bcf/d. In the future stages of Phase 2 we may add a sixth storage tank and related facilities to bring the total LNG storage volume to 20.2 Bcf.

Four dedicated tugs will be stationed at the terminal to ensure safe and timely escorts by crews specifically trained to berth LNG vessels. The terminal will be capable of receiving and unloading approximately 500 LNG vessels each year after Phase 2 is complete. Each regular carrier will take approximately 10 to 12 hours to unload, with a QMax-class vessel projected to unload in approximately 18 hours. The terminal can simultaneously unload LNG vessels from each berth in order to maximize the number of LNG vessels that can be received at the terminal each year.

Cheniere Shipping
J & S Cheniere

Cheniere LNG Services, Inc. (Cheniere LNG Services), one of our wholly-owned subsidiaries, holds a 49% minority interest in J & S Cheniere S.A. (J & S Cheniere), a Switzerland joint-stock company. The majority interest in J & S Cheniere is held by Mercuria Energy Holding B.V. (Mercuria), a Netherlands corporation and an affiliate of Mercuria Energy Group Ltd., an international petroleum trading and marketing company.

In August 2003, J & S Cheniere secured the services of its first LNG vessel Tenaga Empat, owned and operated by the Malaysian International Shipping Company, through an 18 month time charter party agreement commencing in 2004. In August 2004, J & S Cheniere signed two time charter party agreements (10 year) with Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd (K-Line). One LNG vessel with a cargo capacity of 145,000 cubic meters is being built by Kawasaki Shipbuilding and is expected to be delivered early 2008. The second LNG vessel with cargo capacity of 154,200 cubic meters is being built by Imabari Shipbuilding and is expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2008. Both of these vessels will be operated by K-Line.

J & S Cheniere and Cheniere Marketing are continuing to negotiate LNG sale and purchase agreements that would provide for the sale by J & S Cheniere of approximately 78,475,000 MMBtus of stipulated maximum annual LNG reception quantity to Cheniere Marketing for delivery at each of the Cheniere Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi LNG receiving terminals.
