U.S. reauthorizes ConocoPhillips LNG exports from Alaska

The United States Department of Energy has renewed authorization for liquefied natural gas exports from the ConocoPhillips-operated Kenai LNG facility in Alaska.

ConocoPhillips filed an application in October last year seeking authorization to export LNG in an amount up to the equivalent of 40 billion cubic feet of natural gas to free trade agreement and non-FTA countries.

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

This authorization is the latest in a series of export authorizations issued to ConocoPhillips over nearly 50 years permitting the export of LNG from the State of Alaska.

DOE/FE finds that the exports proposed in the application are not inconsistent with the public interest. In particular, we find that the proposed exports of natural gas are not needed to meet regional demand in the Cook Inlet, Alaska area during the two-year period of this authorization,” DOE said on Monday.

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