ConocoPhillips seeks permit for LNG exports

Dec 13, 2013 -- 10:45am
- KENAI, Alaska (AP) - ConocoPhillips is seeking a permit to resume liquefied natural gas exports from its facility on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. The company, earlier this year, announced that it would not seek an extension of its existing export license, which expired March 31. But it said it would consider a new license if needs of the local gas market are met and there is sufficient gas for export. Spokeswoman Natalie Lowman tells the Peninsula Clarion that ConocoPhillips has contracts throughout south-central Alaska through 2018. She says the company would continue to prioritize local gas supply contracts and utilities over exports. The state had urged the company to reopen its plant and apply for a new license to provide an incentive for oil and gas companies to explore and invest in Cook Inlet.
