Cheniere Energy, Inc. (“Cheniere”) (NYSE American: LNG) announced today
that it has entered into two liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) sale and
purchase agreements (“SPA”) with China National Petroleum Corporation

Under the SPAs with Cheniere’s subsidiaries, Corpus Christi
Liquefaction, LLC and Cheniere Marketing International LLP, CNPC
subsidiary PetroChina International Company Limited will purchase
approximately 1.2 million tonnes per annum of LNG, with a portion of the
supply beginning in 2018 and the balance beginning in 2023. The term of
each SPA continues through 2043. The purchase price for LNG will be
indexed to the Henry Hub price plus a fixed component.

“We are pleased to announce these LNG contracts with China National
Petroleum Corporation, an important global energy player in one of the
largest and fastest growing LNG markets worldwide,” said Jack Fusco,
Cheniere’s President and CEO. “These long-term SPAs build upon the
Memorandum of Understanding we signed in November, and we look forward
to a successful long-term partnership with CNPC. We expect these
agreements to support the development of Corpus Christi Train 3, and we
are now focused on completing the remaining necessary steps to reach a
final investment decision later this year.”
