Novation of IPM Agreement from Corpus Christi Liquefaction Stage III, LLC (“CCL Stage III”)

In March 2022, in connection with a prior commitment from Cheniere to collateralize financing for Train 6 of the Liquefaction Project, SPL and CCL Stage III, formerly a wholly owned direct subsidiary of Cheniere that merged with and into CCL, entered into an agreement to assign to SPL an IPM agreement to purchase 140,000 MMBtu per day of natural gas at a price based on the Platts Japan Korea Marker (“JKM”), for a term of approximately 15 years beginning in early 2023. The transaction was accounted for as a transfer between entities under common control, which required us to recognize the obligations assumed at the historical basis of Cheniere. Upon the transfer, which occurred on March 15, 2022, we recognized $2.7 billion in distributions to Cheniere’s common unitholder interest within our Consolidated Statements of Partners’ Equity (Deficit) based on our assumption of current derivative liabilities and derivative liabilities of $142 million and $2.6 billion, respectively, which represented a non-cash financing activity.
