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 more than 45 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.
