("Cheniere Partners") (NYSE MKT: CQP) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC ("Sabine Pass Liquefaction"), has upsized and priced its previously announced offering of Senior Secured Notes due 2025 (the "SPL 2025 Notes"). The principal amount of the offering has been increased from the initially announced $1.0 billion to $2.0 billion.

The closing of the offering of the SPL 2025 Notes is expected to occur on March 3, 2015.

In connection with the offering, Sabine Pass Liquefaction will reduce commitments on a ratable basis under its four credit facilities totaling approximately $2.7 billion (collectively, the "2013 Liquefaction Credit Facilities").
