Tellurian Investments Inc. (“Tellurian”) announced today that GE Oil & Gas has made a $25 million preferred equity investment in Tellurian which has an implied Tellurian Investment Inc. Common Stock value of $5.94 per share.

Tellurian President and CEO Meg Gentle said, “This investment represents another step forward in the development of Driftwood LNG, where we are working together with GE to design the lowest cost liquefaction for the global market. GE Oil & Gas has provided technology for LNG facilities worldwide for over 25 years and is a pioneer in innovation and a leader in reliability. We look forward to a long and beneficial partnership with the GE team.”

Driftwood LNG is in the engineering design and pre-filing phase of the project. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved Driftwood LNG’s pre-filing request on June 6, 2016.
