The actual construction costs of the Trains may be significantly higher than our current estimates as a result of many factors, including change orders under existing or future EPC contracts resulting from the occurrence of certain specified events that may give Bechtel the right to cause us to enter into change orders or resulting from changes with which we otherwise agree. We have already experienced increased costs due to change orders. See Description of Principal Project DocumentsEPC Contract (Trains 1 and 2), EPC Contract (Trains 3 and 4) and EPC Contract (Train 5). We do not have any prior experience in constructing liquefaction facilities, and other than Trains 1 and 2 of the Liquefaction Project, no liquefaction facilities have been constructed and placed in service in the United States in over 40 years. As construction progresses, we may decide or be forced to submit change orders to our contractor that could result in longer construction periods, higher construction costs or both, including change orders to comply with existing or future environmental or other regulations.
