Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Cheniere Energy Inc. expects to sign a U.S. natural-gas export deal within weeks that will be similar in size and duration to the 20-year agreement announced today with BG Group Plc.
The upcoming agreement will enhance Cheniere’s ability to attract lenders for the gas-liquefaction and export terminal the company plans to build on the Louisiana coast, Chief Executive Officer Charif Souki said today in a telephone interview.
