Operations at the Kenai, AK, liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction and export terminal have been extended until October to fill an additional order, the Associated Press reported. In February the plant’s operator, ConocoPhillips, said the facility would close in the coming months due to the expiration of an existing LNG supply contract with a customer in Japan (see Daily GPI, Feb. 11). However, additional orders for shipments to Japan and one to China were secured.
