Item 8.01 Other Events.

Private Placement and Redemption

On December 15, 2021 (the "Issue Date"), Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("SPL"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P., closed the sale of $481.8 million aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes across five series with a weighted average interest rate equal to 3.07% (the "Notes").

The net proceeds from the Notes were used by SPL to repay a portion of its 6.25% Senior Notes due 2022 (the "2022 Notes") and pay certain fees, costs and expenses incurred in connection with the sale of the Notes. On November 15, 2021, SPL issued an irrevocable notice of redemption to holders of its 2022 Notes for the redemption of all $682,000,000.00 outstanding aggregate principal amount of the 2022 Notes. The redemption date for the 2022 Notes was December 15, 2021. The redemption price for the 2022 Notes was 100% of the principal amount of the 2022 Notes being redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date. After such redemption, no 2022 Notes remain outstanding. SPL funded the redemption with the proceeds from the Notes and cash on hand.

The sale of the Notes was not registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and the Notes were sold on a private placement basis in reliance on Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

The Notes are fully amortizing, with a weighted average life of approximately 10.4 years (from the date of issuance of the Notes) and amortization payments delayed until September 15, 2025. The Notes will mature on September 15, 2037. Interest on the Notes is payable semi-annually, in cash in arrears, on March 15 and September 15 of each year, beginning on March 15, 2022.

The Notes are senior secured obligations of SPL and rank senior in right of payment to any and all of SPL's future indebtedness that is subordinated in right of payment to the Notes and equal in right of payment with all of SPL's existing and future indebtedness (including all obligations under SPL's senior working capital revolving credit and letter of credit reimbursement agreement and all of SPL's outstanding senior secured notes) that is senior and secured by the same collateral securing the Notes. The Notes are effectively senior to all of SPL's senior indebtedness that is unsecured to the extent of the value of the assets constituting the collateral securing the Notes. The indentures (and, where applicable, supplements) governing the Notes contain customary terms, covenants and events of default consistent with SPL's existing senior secured notes.

As of the Issue Date, the Notes were not guaranteed but will be guaranteed in the future by all of SPL's future restricted subsidiaries. Such guarantees will be joint and several obligations of the guarantors of the Notes. The guarantees of the Notes will be senior secured obligations of the guarantors.

At any time or from time to time prior to March 15, 2037, SPL may redeem all or a part of the Notes, at a redemption price equal to the "optional redemption price" set forth in the applicable indenture governing such Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of redemption. SPL also may at any time on or after March 15, 2037, redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of redemption.
