Operator: Good day. And welcome to the Cheniere Energy Fourth Quarter 2023 Earnings Call and Webcast. Today’s conference is being recorded. At this time, I’d like to turn the conference over to Randy Bhatia. Please go ahead.

Randy Bhatia: Thanks, Operator. Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Cheniere’s fourth quarter and full year 2023 earnings conference call. The slide presentation and access to the webcast for today’s call are available at Joining me this morning are Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s President and CEO; Anatol Feygin, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer; Zach Davis, Executive Vice President and CFO, and other members of Cheniere’s senior management. Before we begin, I would like to remind all listeners that our remarks, including answers to your questions, may contain forward-looking statements, and actual results could differ materially from what is described in these statements. Slide two of our presentation contains a discussion of those forward-looking statements and associated risks.

In addition, we may include references to certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as consolidated adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow. A reconciliation of these measures to the most comparable GAAP measure can be found in the appendix to the slide presentation. As part of our discussion of Cheniere’s results, today’s call may also include selected financial information and results for Cheniere Energy Partners LP or CQP. We do not intend to cover CQP’s results separately from those of Cheniere Energy, Inc. The call agenda is shown on slide three. Jack will begin with operating and financial highlights, Anatole will then provide an update on the LNG market, and Zach will review our financial results and 2024 guidance. After prepared remarks, we will open the call for Q&A.


I’ll now turn the call over to Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s President and CEO.

Jack Fusco: Thank you, Randy. Good morning, everyone. Thanks for joining us today as we review a successful 2023 and discuss our outlook for what is setting up to be a very busy and promising 2024. In 2023, we drove exceptional results across the key strategic priorities of the company and we did so while reinforcing our track record on safety, execution and operational reliability. I’m extremely proud of my 1,600 Cheniere colleagues across operations, engineering and construction, origination and others who continue to be driven by excellence and take pride in solidifying Cheniere as best in class across our platform. We made significant strides despite some persistent macro headwinds and increased uncertainty in 2023, each largely driven by conflict, geopolitics and the evolving regulatory landscape, particularly right here in America.
