Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements of Cheniere have been prepared in accordance with GAAP for interim financial information and in accordance with Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X and reflect all normal recurring adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the financial results for the interim periods presented. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes included in our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.
Results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that will be realized for the year ending December 31, 2023.

Recent Accounting Standards
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting. This guidance primarily provides temporary optional expedients which simplify the accounting for contract modifications to existing contracts expected to arise from the market transition from LIBOR to alternative reference rates. The temporary optional expedients under the standard became effective March 12, 2020 and will be available until December 31, 2024 following a subsequent amendment to the standard.
We have various credit facilities indexed to LIBOR, as further described in Note 9—Debt. To date, we have amended certain of our credit facilities to incorporate a replacement rate or a fallback replacement rate indexed to SOFR as a result of theexpected LIBOR transition. We elected to apply the optional expedients as applicable to certain modified facilities; however, the impact of applying the optional expedients was not material, and we do not expect the transition to SOFR or other replacement rate indexes to have a material impact on our future cash flows. We will apply the optional expedients to qualifying contract modifications in the future; however, we do not expect the impact of such application to be material.
