Cheniere Energy continues to supply liquefied natural gas to China -executive

HOUSTON, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Cheniere Energy Inc's sole Chinese contract customer continues to take committed liquefied natural gas supplies, an executive with the top exporter of U.S. LNG said on Wednesday.

But the country's 25% tariff on imports of U.S. LNG remains the largest barrier to additional sales, said Corey Grindal, senior vice president of gas supply at the largest U.S. exporter of LNG. (Reporting by Jennifer Hiller Editing by Chris Reese)
