Background

The Kenai LNG Plant complex includes import and export facilities to transport LNG. The LNG terminal has been operating for 40 years, shipping LNG primarily to Japan. The Kenai LNG Plant was the world's largest plant when built.[3] The site's lease expired in March 2011, and remained inactive for over two years. A lease renewal was granted in April 2014 by the United States Department of Energy. The lease allows the export of the equivalent of 40 BCF of LNG over a two-year period.[1][4]

In February 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy approved ConocoPhillips' application to export about 40 billion cubic feet of natural gas from Kenai for two years.[5]

Kenai can export gas to any country the U.S. has a free-trade agreement with, or any with which trade is not prohibited.[5]
