After finishing a terminal and sending the first cargo of US shale gas overseas, Cheniere Energy Inc. is preparing for its next round of export projects.
Cheniere is looking to build more LNG plants and new ways to finance more terminals that chill gas to a liquid and ship it across the globe, including skipping banks altogether and seeking out other capital sources, according to CEO Jack Fusco.
“Our goal is to leverage the existing infrastructure to build whatever the next round requires,” Fusco said Monday. “We can do a better job financing and getting our financing costs down in the capital markets. We’re evaluating all those things to try to get ourselves much more competitive.”
