All statements, other than statements of historical facts, that address activity, events, or developments with respect to our financial condition, results of operations, or economic performance that we expect, believe or anticipate will or may occur in the future, or that address plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipate,” “assume,” “believe,” “budget,” “contemplate,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “initial,” “intend,” “likely,” “may,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “proposed,” “should,” “will,” “would” and similar terms, phrases, and expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements relate to, among other things:

Our forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and our perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors that we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. These statements are subject to a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which may cause our actual results and performance to be materially different from any future results or performance expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results and performance to differ materially from any future results or performance expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following:

technological innovation which may render our anticipated competitive advantage obsolete;
risks related to a terrorist or military incident involving an LNG carrier;
changes in legislation and regulations relating to the LNG industry, including environmental laws and regulations that impose significant compliance costs and liabilities;
governmental interventions in the LNG industry, including increases in barriers to international trade;
uncertainties regarding our ability to maintain sufficient liquidity and attract sufficient capital resources to implement our projects or otherwise continue as a going concern;
our limited operating history;
our ability to attract and retain key personnel;
risks related to doing business in, and having counterparties in, foreign countries;
our reliance on the skill and expertise of third-party service providers;
the ability of our vendors, customers and other counterparties to meet their contractual obligations;
risks and uncertainties inherent in management estimates of future operating results and cash flows;

NOTE 1 — GENERAL
Tellurian Inc. (“Tellurian,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, is a Houston-based company that is developing and plans to own and operate a portfolio of LNG marketing and infrastructure assets that includes an LNG terminal facility (the “Driftwood terminal”) and related pipelines. The Driftwood terminal and related pipelines are collectively referred to as the “Driftwood Project.” We also own upstream natural gas assets. We refer to the Driftwood Project and our upstream assets collectively as the “Business.” The terms “we,” “our,” “us,” “Tellurian” and the “Company” as used in this report refer collectively to Tellurian Inc. and its subsidiaries unless the context suggests otherwise. These terms are used for convenience only and are not intended as a precise description of any separate legal entity associated with Tellurian Inc.
Potential Sale of Upstream Assets
In December 2023, management engaged a strategic advisor in connection with the exploration of a potential sale of our upstream assets. In February 2024, the Board of Directors approved a plan to initiate a process to sell the Company’s upstream assets. We continue to advance the process to market the upstream assets to potential buyers.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP for interim financial information and with Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. 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 year ended December 31, 2023.
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments necessary for the fair presentation of the results for the periods presented. All adjustments are of a normal recurring nature unless otherwise disclosed. Certain reclassifications have been made to conform prior period information to the current presentation. The reclassifications did not have a material effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
To conform with GAAP, we make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the accompanying notes. Although these estimates and assumptions are based on our best available knowledge at the time, actual results may differ.
There has been no change to our significant accounting policies as included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023, except as follows:
Assets Held for Sale
We evaluate the classification of long-lived asset disposal groups (each, a “Disposal Group”) each reporting period. We consider the held for sale criteria to be met when (i) management commits to a plan to sell the Disposal Group in its present condition subject to approval by the Board of Directors and customary terms, (ii) management initiates an active program to identify buyers and the Disposal Group is marketed at a reasonable price in relation to its current fair value, (iii) the sale of the Disposal Group is probable and expected to be recognized as a completed sale within one year of the balance sheet, and (iv) it is unlikely that the plan will be withdrawn or significantly modified. Disposal Groups that meet all the held for sale criteria as of the balance sheet date are measured at the lower of their current carrying value or their fair value less direct costs to sell. The classification of a Disposal Group component as held for sale, which represents a strategic shift to the Company’s operations and financial results, is reported as discontinued operations. As of March 31, 2024, the upstream assets Disposal Group did not meet the held for sale criteria.
Going Concern
Our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business as well as the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. In accordance with ASC Subtopic 205-40, Presentation of Financial Statements—Going Concern, the Company evaluates whether conditions and/or events raise substantial doubt about its ability to meet its obligations as they become due within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued. As of March 31, 2024, the Company has generated losses and cash outflows from operations. The Company has not yet established an ongoing source of revenues that is sufficient to satisfy its future liquidity thresholds and obligations and fund working capital needs as they become due during the twelve months following the issuance of the financial statements. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
To date, the Company has been meeting its liquidity needs primarily from cash on hand and the combined proceeds generated by debt and equity issuances, upstream operations, and the sale of common stock under its at-the-market equity offering programs. Our evaluation does not take into consideration the potential mitigating effect of activities that have not been

fully implemented or are not within the Company’s direct control. Through the date of this filing, the Company has undertaken the following actions to improve its available cash balances and liquidity:
From January 1, 2024 to March 31, 2024, raised net proceeds of approximately $17.8 million from the sale of common stock under our at-the-market equity offering programs;

Subsequent to March 31, 2024, raised net proceeds of approximately $17.2 million from the sale of common stock under our new at-the-market equity offering program (See Note 17, Subsequent Events);

Executed amendments to the Replacement Notes indentures (See Note 8, Borrowings);

Initiated a process to sell our upstream assets; and

Reduced the Company’s general and administrative expenses by approximately $17.5 million during the first quarter of 2024, as compared to the same period of 2023.

Despite these actions, the Company will need to take further measures to generate additional proceeds from various other potential transactions, such as the potential sale of our upstream assets, issuances of equity, equity-linked and debt securities, or similar transactions, managing costs, amending or refinancing the Replacement Notes and offering equity interests in the Driftwood Project (collectively “Management’s Plans”). The Company's ability to effectively implement Management’s Plans is subject to numerous risks and uncertainties such as the inability to consummate the potential sale of our upstream assets, market demand for our equity and debt securities, commodity prices and other factors affecting natural gas markets. As of the date of this filing, Management’s Plans have not been finalized and are not within the Company’s control and, therefore, cannot be deemed probable. As a result, there remains substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements do not include any adjustments to the carrying amounts and classification of assets, liabilities, and reported expenses that may be necessary if the Company were unable to continue as a going concern.

The promissory note bears interest at a rate of 6.00%, which is capitalized into the outstanding principal balance annually.

NOTE 5 — FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
Natural Gas Financial Instruments
The primary purpose of our commodity risk management activities is to hedge our exposure to cash flow variability from commodity price risk due to fluctuations in commodity prices. The Company may use natural gas financial futures and option contracts to economically hedge the commodity price risks associated with a portion of our expected natural gas production. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, there were no open natural gas financial instrument positions.
Embedded Derivatives
We evaluate embedded features within a host contract to determine whether they are embedded derivatives that should be bifurcated and carried separately at fair value. Embedded derivatives that are not clearly and closely related to the host contract are bifurcated and recorded at fair value with subsequent changes in fair value recorded in Other income (expense), net in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations. As described in Note 8, Borrowings, we determined that the Replacement Notes contained embedded features which required bifurcation from the host contracts.
The following table presents the classification of the Company’s financial instruments that are required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets (in thousands):

Amortization of the borrowings’ DFC is a component of Interest expense, net in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. We amortized approximately $3.3 million and $0.9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.
Senior Secured Convertible Notes due 2025
On August 15, 2023, we issued and sold in a private placement approximately $83.3 million aggregate principal amount of 6% Secured Convertible Notes due October 1, 2025 (the “Secured Convertible Notes” or “Convertible Notes”). The Secured Convertible Notes have quarterly interest payments due in cash on the first day of January, April, July, and October of each year.

Tellurian Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)
The holders of the Convertible Notes now have the right to convert the notes into shares of our common stock at an initial conversion price of approximately $1.05 per share of common stock (the “Conversion Price”), subject to adjustment in certain circumstances, at any time until the second trading day immediately prior to the maturity date, with the number of shares of common stock of the Company issuable upon conversion limited to approximately 42.7 million shares (the “Conversion Feature”). The Company will force the holders of the Secured Convertible Notes to convert all of the notes if the trading price of our common stock closes above 300% of the Conversion Price for 20 consecutive trading days and certain other equity conditions are satisfied. Holders of the Secured Convertible Notes may force the Company to redeem the applicable Notes for cash upon (i) a fundamental change or (ii) an event of default.
Following a full exercise of the Conversion Feature, the balance of the principal amount of the Convertible Notes will remain outstanding as a non-convertible instrument. The Convertible Notes, including the non-convertible component of those notes, are required to be paid monthly over a period of 10 months beginning on January 1, 2025. The current portion of the Convertible Notes that is contractually scheduled to amortize within one year is classified as a current borrowing in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
As of March 31, 2024, the estimated fair value of the Secured Convertible Notes was approximately $78.6 million. The Level 3 fair value was estimated based on inputs that are observable in the market or that could be derived from, or corroborated with, observable market data, including our stock price and inputs that are not observable in the market. As of March 31, 2024, we remained in compliance with all covenants under the Secured Convertible Notes.
Senior Secured Notes due 2025
On August 15, 2023, we issued and sold in a private placement $250.0 million aggregate principal amount of 10% Senior Secured Notes due October 1, 2025 (the “Senior Notes”). The Senior Notes have quarterly interest payments in cash due on the first day of January, April, July, and October of each year. Holders of the Senior Notes may force the Company to redeem such notes for cash upon (i) a fundamental change or (ii) an event of default. The Company may provide written notice to each holder of the Senior Notes calling all of such holder’s Senior Notes for redemption for a cash purchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest.
As of March 31, 2024, the estimated fair value of the Senior Notes was approximately $194.4 million. The Level 3 fair value was estimated based on inputs that are observable in the market or that could be derived from, or corroborated with, observable market data, including our stock price and inputs that are not observable in the market. As of March 31, 2024, we remained in compliance with all covenants under the Senior Notes.
January 2024 Amendments
On January 2, 2024, we amended the supplemental indentures governing the Senior Notes and Senior Convertible Notes (collectively the “Replacement Notes”) and issued approximately 47.8 million shares of common stock to partially repay approximately $37.9 million of Senior Notes principal plus accrued interest of approximately $7.5 million. We also agreed to make a conditional top-up payment based on the trading price of our common stock over a specified period (the “Top-up Payment”). The minimum cash balance was reduced from $50.0 million to $40.0 million for the limited period set forth in the related indentures and the liquidity threshold was also reduced. As a result of the partial redemption, we recognized a $4.6 million Loss on extinguishment of debt, net, in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.
February 2024 Amendments
On February 22, 2024, we executed an additional amendment (the “February Amendment”) to the Replacement Notes. At closing, we paid $4.0 million of the Top-up Payment in cash, with the remaining balance of approximately $11.8 million added to the aggregate Senior Notes principal amount in March 2024. The quarterly cash interest and cash shortfall payments due related to the first quarter of 2024 were added to the aggregate principal amount of the applicable notes in April 2024.
The Company is required to use its reasonable best efforts to consummate the sale of our upstream assets, and to use the proceeds from such sale to repay amounts due under the Senior Notes.
The minimum cash balance was reduced from $40.0 million to as low as $25.0 million before being reinstated to $40.0 million on July 1, 2024 and continuing thereafter as set forth in the supplemental indentures. Commencing on the earlier of the sale of our upstream assets and the full repayment of the Senior Notes, the minimum cash balance will be reduced to $35.0 million and will be required to be held in a restricted account, with such required amount reducing to $25.0 million when the outstanding principal amount of the Convertible Notes is less than $50.0 million.
Absent the full repayment of the Senior Notes, on or after October 1, 2024, the holders of the Senior Notes may redeem up to the entire principal amount of the Senior Notes for a cash purchase price equal to the principal amount of the Senior Notes being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if the Company’s liquidity falls below $240.0 million.

Tellurian Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)
The right of the holder of the Convertible Notes to cause the Company to redeem those notes on or after October 1, 2024 as a result of a failure to satisfy a liquidity threshold has been eliminated.
Tellurian Investments LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, provided a non-recourse pledge of its equity interest in the principal properties of the Company comprising the Driftwood Project and a certain intercompany note to secure the obligations under the indentures governing the Replacement Notes. Upon repayment in full of the Senior Notes, all collateral securing the Convertible Notes will be released. Our borrowing obligations under the Replacement Notes are also collateralized by a first priority lien on the Company’s equity interests in Tellurian Production Holdings LLC and mortgages of the material real property oil and gas assets of Tellurian Production Holdings LLC and its subsidiaries (together, the “Collateral”). Tellurian Production Holdings LLC owns all of the Company’s upstream natural gas assets described in Note 3, Property, Plant and Equipment. The Collateral will be removed as a secured obligation under the Secured Convertible Notes if the Senior Notes are no longer outstanding.
Senior Secured Convertible Notes due 2025 (Extinguished)
On June 3, 2022, we issued and sold $500.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6.00% Senior Secured Convertible Notes due May 1, 2025 (the “Extinguished Convertible Notes”). Net proceeds from the Extinguished Convertible Notes were approximately $488.7 million after deducting fees and expenses.
On March 28, 2023, the Company paid approximately $169.1 million in order to satisfy the redemption and retirement of $166.7 million principal amount of the Extinguished Convertible Notes, plus accrued interest. As a result, we wrote off approximately $2.8 million of prorated unamortized DFC, which was recognized within Loss on extinguishment of debt, net, in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The issuance of the Replacement Notes resulted in the satisfaction and discharge of the Company’s outstanding principal repayment obligation under the Extinguished Convertible Notes.
Replacement Notes Embedded Derivatives
As part of the issuance of the Replacement Notes, the Company agreed to issue an aggregate total of 25.7 million shares of its common stock (the “Share Coupon”) to the holders of the Replacement Notes. The Share Coupon was fully satisfied as part of the February Amendment. To the extent that the average daily volume-weighted average price of the common stock of the Company during each quarter is less than $1.35, the Company will pay a cash amount equal to that difference multiplied by the number of shares previously issuable for that quarter (the “Cash Shortfall Payments”). Upon any retirement, redemption, or conversion of the Replacement Notes, the Company will issue any and all unpaid Cash Shortfall Payments (the “Make Whole”).
The Company evaluated the potential embedded features within the Replacement Notes host contracts and determined that the Conversion Feature, Cash Shortfall Payments and the Make Whole embedded features continued to require bifurcation as a single unit of account from the Replacement Notes and accounted for them separately at fair value. See Note 5, Financial Instruments, for more information on the fair value measurement of the Replacement Notes embedded derivatives.
Senior Unsecured Notes due 2028
On November 10, 2021, we sold in a registered public offering $50.0 million aggregate principal amount of 8.25% Senior Unsecured Notes due November 30, 2028 (the “Senior Unsecured Notes”). Net proceeds from the Senior Unsecured Notes were approximately $47.5 million after deducting fees. The underwriter was granted an option to purchase up to an additional $7.5 million of the Senior Unsecured Notes within 30 days. On December 7, 2021, the underwriter exercised the option and purchased an additional $6.5 million of the Senior Unsecured Notes, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $6.2 million after deducting fees. The Senior Unsecured Notes have quarterly interest payments due on January 31, April 30, July 31, and October 31 of each year and on the maturity date. As of March 31, 2024, the Company was in compliance with all covenants under the indenture governing the Senior Unsecured Notes. The Senior Unsecured Notes are listed and trade on the NYSE American under the symbol “TELZ,” and are classified as Level 1 within the fair value hierarchy. As of March 31, 2024, the closing market price was $12.94 per Senior Unsecured Note.

On July 19, 2021, we entered into an uncommitted trade finance credit line for up to $30.0 million that is intended to finance the purchase of LNG cargos for ultimate resale in the normal course of business. On December 7, 2021, the uncommitted trade finance credit line was amended and increased to $150.0 million. As of March 31, 2024, no amounts were drawn under this credit line.
Minimum Volume Commitments
The Company is subject to gas gathering commitments with unrelated companies that provide dedicated gathering capacity for a portion of the Upstream segment’s Haynesville Shale future natural gas production. The gas gathering

agreements may require us to make deficiency payments to the extent the Company does not meet the minimum volume commitments per the terms of each contract. The estimated minimum volume deficiency liability as of March 31, 2024 is approximately $7.9 million.
NOTE 10 — STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
At-the-Market Equity Offering Programs
We maintain at-the-market equity offering programs pursuant to which we sell shares of our common stock from time to time on the NYSE American. On December 30, 2022, we entered into an at-the-market equity offering program for aggregate sales proceeds of up to $500.0 million. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, we issued approximately 29.6 million shares of our common stock under this at-the-market equity offering program for net proceeds of approximately $17.8 million. This at-the-market equity offering program has been inactive since February 1, 2024. As of March 31, 2024, this at-the-market equity offering program had a remaining capacity to raise aggregate sales proceeds of up to approximately $366.1 million.
On March 15, 2024, we entered into a new at-the-market equity offering program with capacity to raise aggregate sales proceeds of up to approximately $366.1 million. See Note 17, Subsequent Events, for further information.
Preferred Stock
In March 2018, we entered into a preferred stock purchase agreement with BDC Oil and Gas Holdings, LLC (“Bechtel Holdings”), a Delaware limited liability company and an affiliate of Bechtel Energy Inc., pursuant to which we sold to Bechtel Holdings approximately 6.1 million shares of our Series C convertible preferred stock (the “Preferred Stock”).
The holders of the Preferred Stock do not have dividend rights but do have a liquidation preference over holders of our common stock. The holders of the Preferred Stock may convert all or any portion of their shares into shares of our common stock on a one-for-one basis. At any time after “Substantial Completion” of “Project 1,” each as defined in and pursuant to the LSTK EPC Agreement for the Driftwood LNG Phase 1 Liquefaction Facility, dated as of November 10, 2017, or at any time after March 21, 2028, we have the right to cause all of the Preferred Stock to be converted into shares of our common stock on a one-for-one basis. The Preferred Stock has been excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share because including it in the computation would have been antidilutive for the periods presented.
NOTE 11 — SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION
We have granted restricted stock and restricted stock units (collectively, “Restricted Stock”), as well as unrestricted stock and stock options, to employees, directors and outside consultants under the Tellurian Inc. 2016 Omnibus Incentive Compensation Plan, as amended (the “2016 Plan”), and the Amended and Restated Tellurian Investments Inc. 2016 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Legacy Plan”). The maximum number of shares of Tellurian common stock authorized for issuance under the 2016 Plan is 40 million shares of common stock, and no further awards can be made under the Legacy Plan.
Upon the vesting of restricted stock, shares of common stock will be released to the grantee. Upon the vesting of restricted stock units, the units will be converted into either cash, stock, or a combination thereof. As of March 31, 2024, there was no Restricted Stock that would be required to be settled in cash.
As of March 31, 2024, we had approximately 26.0 million shares of primarily performance-based Restricted Stock outstanding, of which approximately 14.9 million shares will vest entirely at FID, as defined in the award agreements, and approximately 10.6 million shares will vest in one-third increments at FID and the first and second anniversaries of FID. The remaining shares of primarily performance-based Restricted Stock, totaling approximately 0.5 million shares, will vest based on other criteria. As of March 31, 2024, no expense had been recognized in connection with performance-based Restricted Stock.
As of March 31, 2024, unrecognized compensation expenses, based on the grant date fair value, for all share-based awards totaled approximately $171.6 million. Further, approximately 26.0 million shares of primarily performance-based Restricted Stock, as well as approximately 0.8 million stock options outstanding, have been excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share because including them in the computation would have been antidilutive for the periods presented.
The Company recognized share-based compensation expenses as follows (in thousands):

NOTE 12 — INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PROGRAM
On November 18, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the adoption of the Tellurian Incentive Compensation Program (the “ICP”). The ICP allows the Company to award short-term and long-term performance and service-based incentive compensation to full-time employees. ICP awards may be earned with respect to each calendar year and are determined based on guidelines established by the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors.
Long-term incentive awards
Long-term incentive (“LTI”) awards under the ICP were granted in January 2022 in the form of “tracking units,” at the discretion of the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “2021 LTI Awards”). LTI awards under the ICP were granted in February 2023 in the form of tracking units, at the discretion of the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “2022 LTI Awards”). There were no LTI awards granted for the fiscal period ended December 31, 2023. Each such tracking unit has a value equal to one share of Tellurian common stock and entitles the grantee to receive, upon vesting, a cash payment equal to the closing price of our common stock on the trading day prior to the vesting date. These tracking units will vest in three equal tranches at the grant date and the first and second anniversaries of the grant date.
The Company recognized compensation expense (income) as follows (in thousands):

2021 LTI Awards(485)(701)
NOTE 13 — INCOME TAXES
Due to our cumulative loss position, historical net operating losses (“NOLs”), and other available evidence related to our ability to generate taxable income, we have recorded a full valuation allowance against our net deferred tax assets as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023. Accordingly, we have not recorded a provision for federal, state or foreign income taxes during the three months ended March 31, 2024.
We experienced ownership changes as defined by Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) Section 382 in 2017, and an analysis of the annual limitation on the utilization of our NOLs was performed at that time. It was determined that IRC Section 382 will not limit the use of our NOLs over the carryover period. We will continue to monitor trading activity in our shares that may cause an additional ownership change, which may ultimately affect our ability to fully utilize our existing NOL carryforwards.
NOTE 14 — LEASES
Our Driftwood Project land leases are classified as finance leases and include one or more options to extend the lease term for up to 40 years, as well as to terminate the lease within five years, at our sole discretion. We are reasonably certain that those options will be exercised and that our termination rights will not be exercised, and we have, therefore, included those assumptions within our right of use assets and corresponding lease liabilities. Our other land leases are classified as finance leases and include one or more options to extend the lease term for up to 69 years or to terminate the lease within seven years, at our sole discretion. We are reasonably certain that those options and termination rights will not be exercised, and we have, therefore, excluded those assumptions within our right of use assets and corresponding lease liabilities.
Our office space leases are classified as operating leases and include one or more options to extend the lease term up to 10 years, at our sole discretion. As we are not reasonably certain that those options will be exercised, none are recognized as part of our right of use assets and lease liabilities. As none of our leases provide an implicit rate, we have determined our own discount rate.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Introduction
The following discussion and analysis presents management’s view of our business, financial condition and overall performance and should be read in conjunction with our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the accompanying notes. This information is intended to provide investors with an understanding of our past development activities, current financial condition and outlook for the future organized as follows:
Our Business
Overview of Significant Events
Liquidity and Capital Resources

Results of Operations
Recent Accounting Standards
Our Business
Tellurian Inc. (“Tellurian,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, is a Houston-based company that is developing and plans to own and operate a portfolio of LNG marketing and infrastructure assets that includes an LNG terminal facility (the “Driftwood terminal”) and related pipelines. The Driftwood terminal and related pipelines are collectively referred to as the “Driftwood Project.” We also own upstream natural gas assets; on February 6, 2024, we announced that we are exploring a sale of those assets. We refer to the Driftwood Project and our upstream assets as the “Business.” As of March 31, 2024, our upstream natural gas assets consisted of 29,883 net acres and interests in 167 producing wells located in the Haynesville Shale trend of northern Louisiana. Our Business may be developed in phases.
As part of our execution strategy, we will consider various commercial arrangements with third parties across the natural gas value chain. We are also pursuing activities such as direct sales of LNG to global counterparties. We remain focused on the financing and construction of the Driftwood Project.
We manage and report our operations in three reportable segments. The Upstream segment is organized and operates to produce, gather, and deliver natural gas and to acquire and develop natural gas assets. The Midstream segment is organized to develop, construct and operate LNG terminals and pipelines. The Marketing & Trading segment is organized and operates to purchase and sell natural gas produced primarily by the Upstream segment, market the Driftwood terminal’s LNG production capacity and trade LNG.
We continue to evaluate the scope and other aspects of our Business in light of the evolving economic environment, dynamics of the global political landscape, needs of potential counterparties and other factors. How we execute our Business will be based on a variety of factors, including the results of our continuing analysis, changing business conditions and market feedback.
Overview of Significant Events
Driftwood Project Activities
On February 15, 2024, FERC granted an extension of time, until April 18, 2029, for us to construct and make available for service the Driftwood terminal and associated pipeline.

On April 30, 2024, the USACE granted an extension of time for our Section 404 permit until May 31, 2029.

Potential Sale of Upstream Assets
We continue to advance the process of marketing our upstream assets and are evaluating potential opportunities with interested counterparties.

Debt Reductions and Amendments
We repaid approximately $37.9 million in principal and $7.5 million in accrued interest on our borrowings, subject to a top-off payment provision. We eliminated the minimum liquidity threshold related to the Senior Convertible Notes and reduced the minimum cash balance to $25.0 million as of March 31, 2024.

Tellurian Inc. and Subsidiaries
Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Capital Resources
We consider all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. We are currently funding our operations, development activities and general working capital needs through our cash on hand and the combined proceeds generated by debt and equity issuances, upstream operations and the sale of common stock under our at-the-market equity offering programs. We currently maintain at-the-market equity offering programs pursuant to which we may sell our common stock from time to time.
As of March 31, 2024, we had total borrowing obligations of approximately $364.9 million. The Replacement Notes required us to maintain a minimum cash balance and the holders of the Senior Notes could redeem up to the entire principal amount of the Senior Notes if the Company’s liquidity fell below certain minimum liquidity thresholds. See Note 8, Borrowings, of our Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for information about the minimum cash balance and the required liquidity thresholds. We also had contractual obligations associated with our finance and operating leases totaling $387.4 million, of which $15.2 million is scheduled to be paid within the next twelve months. Our current capital resources consist of approximately $51.8 million of cash and cash equivalents and approximately $18.0 million of accounts receivable.
As of March 31, 2024, the Company had generated losses and cash outflows from operations. The Company has not yet established an ongoing source of revenues that is sufficient to satisfy its future liquidity thresholds and obligations and fund working capital needs as they become due during the twelve months following the issuance of the financial statements. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
To date, the Company has been meeting its liquidity needs primarily from cash on hand and the combined proceeds generated by debt and equity issuances, upstream operations, and the sale of common stock under its at-the-market equity offering programs. Our evaluation does not take into consideration the potential mitigating effect of activities that have not been fully implemented or are not within the Company’s direct control. Through the date of this filing, the Company has undertaken the following actions to improve its available cash balances and liquidity:
From January 1, 2024 to March 31, 2024, raised net proceeds of approximately $17.8 million from the sale of common stock under our at-the-market equity offering programs;

Subsequent to March 31, 2024, raised net proceeds of approximately $17.2 million from the sale of common stock under our new at-the-market equity offering program (See Note 17, Subsequent Events);

Executed amendments to the Replacement Notes indentures (See Note 8, Borrowings);

Initiated a process to sell our upstream assets; and

Reduced the Company’s general and administrative expenses by approximately $17.5 million during the first quarter of 2024, as compared to the same period of 2023.

Despite these actions, the Company will need to take further measures to generate additional proceeds from various other potential transactions, such as the potential sale of our upstream assets, issuances of equity, equity-linked and debt securities, or similar transactions, managing costs, amending or refinancing the Replacement Notes and offering equity interests in the Driftwood Project (collectively “Management’s Plans”). The Company's ability to effectively implement Management’s Plans is subject to numerous risks and uncertainties such as the inability to consummate the potential sale of our upstream assets, market demand for our equity and debt securities, commodity prices and other factors affecting natural gas markets. As of the date of this filing, Management’s Plans have not been finalized and are not within the Company’s control, and therefore cannot be deemed probable. As a result, there remains substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. We remain focused on the financing and construction of the Driftwood Project.

Sources and Uses of Cash
The following table summarizes the sources and uses of our cash and cash equivalents and costs and expenses for the periods presented (in thousands):
Three Months Ended March 31,

Cash used in operating activities$(8,519)$(10,160)
Cash used in investing activities(34,224)(147,468)

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, end of the period$76,259 $184,031 
Net working capital $(85,817)$115,299 
Cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2024 decreased by approximately $1.6 million compared to the same period in 2023 primarily due to net changes in the Company’s working capital from December 31, 2023. For further information regarding the net changes in the Company’s working capital, see Note 15, Additional Cash Flow Information, of our Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Cash used in investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2024 decreased by approximately $113.2 million compared to the same period in 2023. This decrease was primarily due to decreased acquisition and development of natural gas properties of approximately $6.5 million in the current period, as compared to approximately $65.7 million in the prior period. The decrease was also attributable to lower Driftwood Project construction activities of approximately $26.3 million in the current period, as compared to approximately $62.5 million in the prior period.
Cash provided by (used in) financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2024 decreased by approximately $180.4 million compared to the same period in 2023. This decrease is primarily due to approximately $4.0 million in borrowing payments in the current period as compared to $166.7 million in borrowing payments in the prior period. The decrease was partially offset by approximately $17.8 million in net proceeds from equity issuances as compared to none in the prior period. See Note 8, Borrowings and Note 10, Stockholders’ Equity, of our Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information about our financing activities.
Capital Development Activities
The activities we have proposed will require significant amounts of capital and are subject to completion risks and delays. We have received all regulatory approvals for the construction of Phase 1 of the Driftwood terminal and, as a result, our business success will depend to a significant extent upon our ability to obtain the funding necessary to construct assets on a commercially viable basis and to finance the costs of staffing, operating and expanding our company during that process. In March 2022, we issued a limited notice to proceed to Bechtel Energy Inc. under our Phase 1 EPC Agreement and commenced the construction of Phase 1 of the Driftwood terminal in April 2022.
We currently estimate the total cost of the Driftwood Project to be approximately $25.0 billion, including owners’ costs, transaction costs and contingencies but excluding interest costs incurred during construction and other financing costs. The proposed Driftwood terminal will have a liquefaction capacity of up to approximately 27.6 Mtpa and will be situated on approximately 1,200 acres in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.
We anticipate funding our more immediate liquidity requirements for the construction of the Driftwood terminal, natural gas activities, and general and administrative expenses through the use of cash on hand, proceeds from operations, and proceeds from completed and future issuances of securities by us. Investments in the construction of the Driftwood terminal and natural gas development are and will continue to be significant, but the size of those investments will depend on, among other things, commodity prices, Driftwood Project financing developments and other liquidity considerations, and our continuing analysis of strategic risks and opportunities. Consistent with our overall financing strategy, the Company has considered, and in some cases discussed with investors, various potential financing transactions, including issuances of debt, equity and equity-linked securities or similar transactions, to support its capital requirements. The Company will continue to evaluate its cash needs and business outlook, and it may execute one or more transactions of this type in the future. In addition, we expanded our engagement with a strategic advisor to include a broader spectrum of opportunities, including a potential sale of the Company.
19

Tellurian Inc. and Subsidiaries
Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
During the first quarter of 2024, we announced our intention to explore the potential sale of our upstream assets. Decreases in natural gas commodity prices, negative revisions of estimated reserve quantities, increases in future cost estimates, divestitures, or developments in the upstream assets sale process may lead to a reduction in expected future cash flows of our natural gas reserves and possibly an impairment of our proved natural gas properties in future periods which could be material.
As discussed in Note 8, Borrowings, we amended certain terms of the indentures governing the Replacement Notes on February 22, 2024. As part of the February transaction, we provided a non-recourse pledge of our equity interests in a subsidiary that indirectly owns the principal properties comprising the Driftwood Project. The non-recourse pledge will be released upon the redemption or repayment of the Senior Notes. We do not expect the existence of this pledge to interfere with any aspect of the commercialization or financing of the Driftwood Project. Further, we expect that our improved near-term liquidity resulting from the transaction will enable a higher degree of engagement with potential counterparties and financing sources for the project.

The most significant changes affecting our results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to the same period in 2023, on a consolidated basis and by segment, are the following:
Upstream
Decrease of approximately $25.5 million in Natural gas sales as a result of decreased realized natural gas prices and production volumes.
Decrease of approximately $4.3 million in Operating expenses as a result of decreased production volumes partially offset by approximately $2.8 million of minimum volume deficiency costs incurred during the current period.
Decrease of approximately $1.0 million in DD&A due to decreased natural gas production volumes during the current period.
Consolidated
Decrease of approximately $17.5 million in General and administrative expenses primarily attributable to decreased compensation, charitable and marketing expenses in the current period.
Decrease of approximately $18.3 million in Other (expense) income, net primarily attributable to approximately $4.1 million of embedded derivative losses in the current period as compared to $11.9 million of realized gain on natural gas financial instruments in the prior period.
Primarily as a result of the foregoing, our consolidated Net loss was approximately $44.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to a consolidated Net loss of approximately $27.5 million during the same period in 2023.
