Cheniere Energy (NYSEMKT:LNG) is a little over a year away from bringing the first liquefied natural gas export terminal online in the United States, which makes for a pretty tempting investment opportunity. If you have researched this company, though, you will notice that it has three components: Cheniere Energy, Cheniere Energy Partners (NYSEMKT:CQP), and Cheniere Energy Partners LP Holdings (NYSEMKT:CQH). Despite the fact that the company is basically one asset right now, its Sabine Pass LNG facility in Louisiana, these three separate entities each represents a different investing opportunity.

To help you figure out how Cheniere has divided itself into three different companies, check out the following presentation. It is organized to show what each separate entity owns, how it will make money over the next several years, and which one is the best fit for your investing style and portfolio. You may find that the default choice of Cheniere Energy may not be the best fit for you.
