The ConocoPhillips Optimized Cascade® process includes proprietary technology necessary to efficiently and effectively liquefy natural gas, while recovering heavier hydrocarbons as a separate product (prevents freezing), and removing nitrogen, if required.
ConocoPhillips owns and licenses the Optimized Cascade® technology for liquefying natural gas.
This technology was first adopted by the Kenai LNG plant that started operation in 1969. With 46 years of LNG plant operating experience and cutting-edge technology improvements, ConocoPhillips continues to provide cost effective, high-value natural gas liquefaction solutions. Since Kenai, the Optimized Cascade process has been licensed by owners of 24 additional LNG trains.
Optimized Cascade® is a registered trademark of ConocoPhillips Company in the United States and certain other countries.
