ConocoPhillips files for renewal of Kenai LNG export licence

ConocoPhillips filed an application with the United States Department of Energy for blanket authorization to export LNG from Kenai liquefied natural gas facility in Alaska. 

The company requested the blanket authorization to export a quantity of LNG in an amount up to the equivalent of 40 billion cubic feet of natural gas to free trade agreement and non-FTA countries, according to the company’s filing to the DOE.

The authorization is requested for a two-year period, starting on February 19, 2016, after the current LNG export permit expires.

ConocoPhillips was also authorized to export LNG to non-FTA countries in April, 2014 ending in April 2016, which it would relinquish once the new permits are granted.

The Kenai LNG plant began operating in 1969 and has shipped 1,300 cargoes since then.
