Cheniere Investment Thesis Premier LNG provider with substantial asset platform and proven track record of execution Full-service LNG offering enables solutions tailored to customer needs Significant stable long-term cash flows from take-or-pay style agreements with creditworthy counterparties Potential cash flow growth from portfolio volumes and economically attractive liquefaction expansions Strong global LNG demand fundamentals call for LNG supply growth Investments along LNG value chain support core liquefaction business 4
Substantial Asset Platform and Global Footprint Building an Industry Leading U.S. LNG Export Platform Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project 22.5 mtpa(1) Liquefaction Capacity . Trains 1-4 operating, contracts with long-term buyers commenced(2) . Train 5 commissioning, first LNG October 2018 . Over 500 destination-flexible cargoes exported, with deliveries to 30 countries and regions worldwide . Train 6 early engineering, procurement, and site works underway ahead of FID (additional 4.5 mtpa(1)) Corpus Christi LNG Terminal (1) 1300+ Employees 13.5 mtpa Liquefaction Capacity . 6 Offices Worldwide First greenfield LNG export facility in U.S. Lower-48 . Houston | Washington D.C. | London Train 1 commissioning, first LNG November 2018 . Tokyo | Beijing | Singapore Trains 2-3 under construction . Filed FERC application for ~9.5 mtpa liquefaction expansion, Environmental Assessment expected 1Q 2019 . Land position enables significant further liquefaction capacity expansion (1) Each Train is expected to have a nominal production capacity, prior to adjusting for planned maintenance, production reliability, potential overdesign, and debottlenecking opportunities, of approximately 4.5 mtpa of LNG and an 5 average adjusted nominal production capacity of approximately 4.4-4.9 mtpa of LNG on a run rate basis. (2) Date of First Commercial Delivery reached for Trains 1-4 for the primary SPA for each Train.
Recent Execution Increases Cheniere’s Value Proposition Optimizing Existing Liquefaction Platform . Significant debottlenecking opportunities at leading economics ~$300/ton . Increased expected average adjusted nominal production capacity per train to 4.4 – 4.9 mtpa (previously 4.3 – 4.6 mtpa) . Increased run rate Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA and DCF guidance by ~$200MM Progressing Toward Sabine Pass T6 FID . Signed EPC contract with Bechtel at attractive economics, locking in cost and schedule . Bechtel commencing early engineering, procurement, and site works under a limited notice to proceed (LNTP) . Expected to add ~$400-600 million to run rate Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA . Continued commercial success with 20-year PETRONAS SPA for ~1.1 mtpa of LNG and 24-year PGNiG SPA for 1.45 mtpa of LNG . SPAs totaling >7 mtpa signed YTD Developing Additional Projects . FERC scheduling notice received for Corpus Christi Stage 3 in August . MIDSHIP received FERC order in August . Land position at Corpus Christi site enables significant further liquefaction capacity expansion Note: Run rate production includes expected impacts of planned maintenance, production reliability, potential overdesign, and debottlenecking opportunities. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow (DCF) are non-GAAP measures. A definition of these non-GAAP measures is included in the appendix. We have not made any forecast of net income on a run rate basis, which would be the most directly comparable financial measure under GAAP, and we are unable to reconcile differences between these run rate forecasts and income. 6

Forecasting Points Tax Assumptions . Cheniere cash tax payments begin early-mid 2020s . Average tax rate as percentage of pre-tax cash flow: . 2020 – 2030: 5-10% . 2031 – 2040: 21% . 2020 – 2030 tax rate primarily due to “80% NOL limitation” on newly-generated NOLs from Tax Cuts and Jobs Act . Cheniere federal NOL carryforward $4.7 billion as of December 31, 2017 Share Conversion Assumptions . CCH Holdco II Notes (EIG Notes) convert into ~25mm LNG shares in 2020 at estimated $75 / share (ultimate principal balance ~$1.7bn) • Conversion at 10% discount to LNG’s share price • Only 50% of notes can be converted at initial conversion, subsequent conversions cannot occur for 90 days after initial conversion date . CEI Convertible Unsecured Notes (RRJ Notes) convert into ~15mm LNG shares in 2021 at estimated $94 / share (ultimate principal balance ~$1.4bn) 26
Reconciliation to Non-GAAP Measures Regulation G Reconciliations Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA This presentation contains non-GAAP financial measures. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow, Distributable Cash Flow per The foll owing table reconciles our Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA to U.S. GAAP results for the three and nine Share, and Distributable Cash Flow per Unit are non-GAAP financial measures that we use to facilitate comparisons of operating performance months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 (in millions): across periods. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed as a supplement to and not a substitute for our U.S. GAAP measures of Three Months Ended Nine Months Ended performance and the financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliations from these results should be carefully September 30, September 30, evaluated. 2018 2017 2018 2017 Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) attributable to Cheniere before net income (loss) attributable to the non-controlling Net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders $ 65 $ (289 ) $ 404 $ (520 ) interest, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for certain non-cash items, other non-operating income or expense items, and Net income attributable to non-controlling interest 162 379 573 803 Income tax provision (benefit) 3 (2 ) 15 (1 ) other items not otherwise predictive or indicative of ongoing operating performance, as detailed in the following reconciliation.
