US LNG exporter Cheniere posted a 20% rise in Q1 revenues while net profit rose to $375 mln

Houston (Texas), May 4 - Neftegaz.RU. The LNG company Cheniere reported revenues of $2.71 billion in the January-March period, compared to $2.26 billion in the same period the year before.

Net income increased by $234 million year-on-year primarily due to increased total margins which rose on larger volumes coming from additional trains in operation, Cheniere said.

The company currently operates 5 production units at its Sabine Pass facility and 2 at Corpus Christi. It is is also building one additional train at each of the liquefaction terminals.

As of April 27, more than 1,100 cumulative LNG cargoes totaling over 75 million tonnes have been exported from Cheniere’s terminals. Cheniere shipped 128 LNG cargoes during the March quarter.

The company’s operations have also been affected by the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

“The 1st quarter of 2020 was defined by unprecedented circumstances, and our focus at Cheniere has been to protect the health and safety of our workforce, ensure continuity of construction and operations to deliver on our obligations to our customers, and to support the communities where we live and work with assistance needed to provide critical services”, Cheniere’s chief executive Jack Fusco said.

Fusco reconfirmed Cheniere’s full-year 2020 guidance of consolidated adjusted EBITDA of $3.8 to $4.1 billion, and distributable cash flow of $1 to $1.3 billion.
