ConocoPhillips Signs Agreement with Freeport LNG

January 2, 2004

ConocoPhillips (COP) announced the signing of an agreement with Freeport LNG Development, L.P. to participate in its proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal in Quintana, Texas. ConocoPhillips will acquire 1 billion cu. Ft. (BCF) per day of regasification capacity in the terminal for its use and obtain a 50 percent interest in the general partner managing the venture. ConocoPhillips will be primarily responsible for management of construction and operation of the facility, and provide a significant portion of construction funding. The management of Freeport LNG Development will remain in place and be responsible for all commercial activities and customer interface for the remaining capacity in the facility. The terminal will be designed with a storage capacity of 6.9 BCF and send-out capacity of 1.5 BCF per day. Natural gas will be transported through a 9.4-mile pipeline to Stratton Ridge, Texas, which is a major point of interconnection with the Texas intrastate gas pipeline system. The Freeport LNG terminal is being developed in response to the growing need for new natural gas supplies for commercial, industrial and residential consumers in Texas. “This significant step in our LNG import and regasification development effort provides a near-term opportunity to serve the growing U.S. natural gas market,” said Jim McColgin, ConocoPhillips vice president of exploration and business development. "We look forward to expanding local relationships and working closely with our co-venturers and stakeholders to continue to be a good neighbor through this project."
