The last year has been very exciting for our company, including the successful marketing, financing and recent start of construction for our Sabine Pass liquefaction project. We are pleased to have entered into export agreements with Sabine Pass, and we look forward to expanding our relationships in the Asia Pacific region on new projects in the future.”
