SAC Capital Buys 5.7 Percent Stake in Cheniere

SAC Capital Advisors, a hedge fund run by US investor Steven Cohen, purchased a 5.7 percent stake  in Cheniere Energy, according to a filing with SEC.

Cheniere is a Houston-based energy company primarily engaged in LNG related businesses, and owns and operates the Sabine Pass LNG terminal and Creole Trail pipeline in Louisiana.

The company has initiated a project to add liquefaction services that would transform the Sabine Pass LNG terminal into a bi-directional facility capable of exporting LNG.

Cheniere recently also announced that it is developing a LNG export terminal at one of the company’s existing sites that was previously permitted for a regasification terminal, located in Corpus Christi, Texas.
