ConocoPhillips selling Cook Inlet properties
ConocoPhillips Alaska Inc. is putting its Cook Inlet properties up for sale.
The largest oil company in the state said it would open a data room later this year to market its North Cook Inlet unit and its stake in the Beluga River unit.
"While historically significant to the company's investment in Alaska, the North Cook Inlet and Beluga River units are mature fields that are no longer considered core to Alaska operations. The focus will be on the company's current North Slope operations, including the Alaska LNG project," the company said in a statement this morning.
The company intends to keep its liquefied natural gas terminal in Kenai.
