With Cheniere Energy's (NYSEMKT: LNG) new-found position as the one and only licensed exporter of liquefied natural gas from the U.S., and the major expansion projects the company currently has under way to its liquefaction and export facilities to take advantage of its fledgling market advantage, the company is expecting a huge cash flow increase in the next few years, which has led it to make the announcement that a dividend for shareholders may be on the way.
