ConocoPhillips Alaska Natural Gas Corporation; Application for Blanket Authorization To Export Liquefied Natural Gas to Non-Free Trade Agreement Countries on a Short-Term Basis
The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an application (Application) filed on December 11, 2013, by ConocoPhillips Alaska Natural Gas Corporation (CPANGC), requesting blanket authorization to export a quantity of liquefied natural gas (``LNG'') in an amount up to the equivalent of 40 billion cubic feet (``Bcf'') of natural gas on a cumulative basis over a two-year period. CPANGC seeks blanket authorization to export this volume of LNG from facilities located in the Cook Inlet near Kenai, Alaska, acting on its own behalf or as agent for others, to any country with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy (``non-FTA countries''). CPANGC seeks such authorization for a two-year period to commence on the date of issuance of the order granting the requested authorization. The Application was filed under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), 15 U.S.C. 717b.
