ConocoPhillips Extends Natural Gas Plant Operations Until October

ConocoPhillips has extended operations at its Kenai liquefied natural gas plant until October to fill an additional order.

The plant was to have been mothballed earlier this year, but they were able to fulfill four orders, three to Japan and one to China.

The plant was to have been mothballed after the last shipment, which went out last week.

But ConocoPhillips spokeswoman Natalie Lowman says that the plant will be open an additional two months because of this latest order.

Details of that order were not immediately released. She says the plant is still scheduled to be mothballed after this order is shipped.
