Revenue from Contract with Customer [Abstract]  
Disaggregation of Revenue
The following table represents a disaggregation of revenue earned from contracts with customers during the years ended December 31, 2020, 2019 and 2018 (in millions):
Year Ended December 31,
2020 2019 2018
LNG revenues (1) $ 5,195  $ 5,210  $ 4,828 
LNG revenues—affiliate 662  1,312  1,299 
Regasification revenues 269  266  261 
Other revenues 41  49  39 
Total revenues from customers 6,167  6,837  6,427 
Net derivative gain (loss) (2) —  (1)
Total revenues $ 6,167  $ 6,838  $ 6,426 
(1)LNG revenues include revenues for LNG cargoes in which our customers exercised their contractual right to not take delivery but remained obligated to pay fixed fees irrespective of such election. During the year ended December 31, 2020, we recognized $553 million in LNG revenues associated with LNG cargoes for which customers notified us that they would not take delivery. Revenue is generally recognized upon receipt of irrevocable notice that a customer will not take delivery because our customers have no contractual right to take delivery of such LNG cargo in future periods and our performance obligations with respect to such LNG cargo have been satisfied.
(2)See Note 8—Derivative Instruments for additional information about our derivatives.
