So far this year, Cheniere has signed enough long-term gas supply deals to contract over 33% of the company's proposed Corpus Christi LNG export facility, while its MLP Cheniere Energy Partners (NYSEMKT:CQP) has deals in place covering almost three-fourths of capacity at the Sabine Pass LNG export facility, which is slated to come online by the end of next year.

These developments bode well for Cheniere's future, but there is one hurdle. Tune into the video below to find out what it is and how much it could impact the company.
