With its Sabine Pass liquified natural gas export facility estimated to come online in 2015, Cheniere Energy, Inc. continues lining up deals for its Corpus Christi project. Once approved for non-FTA exporting, the facility should have the capacity to export 2.1 billion cubic feet per day. A portion of that will now be going to Pertamina, a state-owned energy company in Indonesia. The deal will last from 2018 until 2038. With the first four trains of the Sabine Pass, operated by Cheniere Energy Partners , facility already approved, further good news out of Corpus Christi should continue driving Cheniere Energy's stock price higher.
