ConocoPhillips Alaska

Cook Inlet

While much focus is often placed on ConocoPhillips assets on the North Slope, our operations in Cook Inlet have played an important role in Alaska’s oil and gas history. A ConocoPhillips heritage company was responsible for Alaska’s first major oil discovery at Swanson River on the Kenai Peninsula in 1957 – nearly six decades ago. Today, Cook Inlet supplies the gas that provides most of the power generation for consumer use in Southcentral Alaska. ConocoPhillips owns and operates the Kenai LNG Plant which has historically provided an important market for excess gas in Cook Inlet, encouraging exploration and development which has for more than 40 years supported local energy security as well as the local economy.
