Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]  
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements of Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In our opinion, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation, have been included. Certain reclassifications have been made to conform prior period information to the current presentation.  The reclassifications had no effect on our overall consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. As used in these Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, the terms “Cheniere Energy Partners,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, unless otherwise stated or indicated by context.

Results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that will be realized for the year ending December 31, 2014.

Subsequent to the acquisition of Cheniere Energy, Inc.’s (“Cheniere’s”) ownership in Creole Trail Pipeline, L.P. (“CTPL”) and Cheniere Pipeline GP Interests, LLC (collectively, the “Creole Trail Pipeline Business”) in May 2013, we control CTPL’s operating and financial decisions and policies and have consolidated CTPL in our financial statements. Our consolidated financial statements and all other financial information included in this report have been presented to assume that our acquisition of the Creole Trail Pipeline Business from Cheniere had occurred at the date when the Creole Trail Pipeline Business met the accounting requirements for entities under common control (the date of our inception since both we and the Creole Trail Pipeline Business were formed by Cheniere). The results of the Creole Trail Pipeline Business prior to the May 2013 acquisition date are reported as net loss attributable to the Creole Trail Pipeline Business in our Consolidated Statements of Operations and are not allocated to the common units for purposes of calculating net income (loss) per common unit.

We are not subject to either federal or state income tax, as our partners are taxed individually on their allocable share of our taxable income.
