Cheniere Energy's (CQP +5%; LNG +3.8%) deal to supply Total (TOT) with liquefied natural gas from its Sabine Pass export facility means nearly all LNG export capacity currently permitted in the U.S. has been spoken for. TOT would take its LNG from Cheniere's proposed fifth LNG train, and the contract could ease financing for such an expansion; the first four planned LNG trains are sold out.
