    LNG , is now a true first mover. I said many years ago that then were way ahead of the game with their first signed permit in hand and in the middle of natural gas boom in our rich southern coastal region of Texas and Louisiana. We are now helping our self first in the U.S.A. and now comes the lagniappe .....welcome the international market. Yes, I got in early and will remain.... good times for all well into the future!!!! jpmj4847

    This is eye-popping news. Cheniere, a marketer, sells to Pertamina, a producer. Me thinks there is big news behind the news.

    DB plugs this contract into their model and raises the value from $47 to $52. This contract is for 18% of the output from the first train from Corpus Christi. There are to be three trains. All things being equal (they never are) the numbers get quite large when all three trains are contracted for.
