US LNG export project developer Tellurian has closed its previously announced offering of senior notes.
Tellurian said in a statement on Wednesday it finalized the underwritten public offering of $50 million aggregate principal amount of 8.25% senior notes due 2028.
Proceeds from the offering, after fees and expenses, reached about $47.1 million, Tellurian said.
Also, the company has granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase an additional $7.5 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes in connection with the offering.
Tellurian intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes,
including the potential acquisition of upstream assets.
The developer of the 27.6 mtpa Driftwood project reported last week a lower net loss in the third quarter, while it also started production from two new natural gas wells.
During the quarter, the firm signed a long-term LNG sales deal with Shell and raised about $116 million in a public stock offering.
The Houston-based firm has this year signed three 10-year LNG supply deals for its Driftwood project in Louisiana for a total of 9 million tonnes per year. These include contracts with Gunvor and Vitol.
Tellurian said it has sold all the necessary offtake for the first phase of the Driftwood LNG plant which would include two units with a capacity of about 11 mtpa. Total development costs for this phase would reach about $11.9 billion.
