NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -07/16/12)- Natural gas prices received a boost last week after Cheniere Energy announced it expects to receive $3.4 billion in financing for a liquefied-natural-gas export facility. The export facility would have the potential to help ease the country's current glut of natural gas by allowing natural gas producers to ship the fuel overseas. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Natural Gas Industry and provides equity research on Cheniere Energy, Inc. (LNG) and Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK).

Cheniere announced on Thursday that eight banks have committed to finance the first liquefied-natural-gas export facility in the U.S. The facility will be located in Louisiana and will allow the company to export 1.1 billion cubic feet a day by the end of 2015, according to a recent Wall Street Journal article. "They have all the capital they need, they have all the permitting they need," said Will Frohnhoefer, BTIG. "I think they're good to go."
The U.S. Energy Information Administration on Thursday reported that natural gas storage levels increased by 33 billion cubic feet. While the levels were above analysts' estimates they were well below the 90 bcf average for this time of year.
