The Kenai LNG Plant is located in Nikiski, on the Kenai Peninsula, approximately 60 air miles from Anchorage and 10 miles from the city of Kenai. For more than 40 years, the Kenai plant was the only LNG export plant of domestic production in the United States.
On March 31, 2013 the Kenai LNG Plant export license expired. Due to a change in market conditions, including additional gas supplies in the Cook Inlet basin, and with the encouragement of various stakeholders, ConocoPhillips Alaska pursued a new license which was granted on April 14, 2014.
The authorization from the United States Department of Energy allows export of liquefied natural gas from the Kenai Facility to Free Trade Agreement (FTA) countries and non-FTA countries. Collectively, these authorizations allow export of the equivalent of 40 BCF of LNG over a two-year period.
ConocoPhillips is committed to meeting its local gas supply contracts and to diverting gas from the LNG facility to address local energy supply issues if needed.
