Enstar Looking at LNG Plant Byproduct to Help With Winter Demand

Enstar Natural Gas is seeking regulatory approval to purchase small quantities of natural gas from the ConocoPhillips LNG Plant in Nikiski that is developed as a byproduct of warming liquefied natural gas at the plant that is in the process of being “moth balled.”

Ensrar recently inked a deal with ConocoPhillips to purchase the gas that develops during the storage of LNG though 2016, however, the sales won’t begin until approval is granted by the Regulatory Commission of Alaska, and infrastructure is completed to connect the gas to the existing grid.

Enstar said that these small amounts of gas would help fill the gap during the winter months when natural gas demand spikes throughout South-central Alaska.

The RCA is taking public comment on this deal though July 5th.
