US Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) has welcomed the Department of Energy’s (DOE) announcement that ConocoPhillips’ non-FTA LNG export license has been approved.
Murkowski issued the following statement:
“I’m glad ConocoPhillips will be able to add to Alaska’s 40-year history of supplying natural gas to Japan. Today’s announcement by DOE also highlights the growth that’s occurring in Cook Inlet, where there is now ample gas supply to both meet local needs and help out our friends overseas.”
In February, DOE approved ConocoPhillips’ application to export the equivalent of 40 billion ft3 of natural gas as LNG over a two-year period from its plant on the Kenai Peninsula to countries that have free trade agreements with the US.
