Houston-based LNG player Cheniere upsized the senior secured notes offering by its Cheniere Corpus Christi Unit.
Initially, the company planned on offering US$1 billion notes due 2027, however, according to the company’s latest statement, it has increased the offering up to $1.5 billion.
The CCH 2027 Notes will bear interest at a rate of 5.125% per annum and will mature on June 30, 2027.
