ConocoPhillips Seeks Permit for Alaska LNG Exports
ConocoPhillips Alaska Natural Gas Corporation (CPANGC) has filed applications with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to export LNG in an amount up to the equivalent of 40 Bcf of natural gas on a cumulative basis over a two-year period to nations with and without a Free Trade Agreement with the United States.
CPANGC is the operator of natural gas liquefaction and marine terminal facilities located near Kenai, Alaska. The company produces LNG from gas fields in the Cook Inlet region of Southcentral Alaska.
The proposed export of LNG would not require any changes to the Kenai LNG facility. The LNG manufacturing and storage facilities that will be utilized during the blanket authorization already exist and have been operated safely without major disruption of supply or accident from their startup in 1969.
