Apache Corp is still looking for a buyer for its stake in the Kitimat LNG project, ¬†company CEO Steven Farris told investors Thursday as the company reported its third quarter results. Farris gave no details, just telling an investor conference call, that as he reported during the second quarter call, that company intends to “completely exit” both the Kitimat LNG project and the Wheatstone LNG project in Australia.Apache Corporation

 

All Farris would say is, “We have lots of people working on the projects to do just that.”

At that same time, Apache is still spending money on the Kitimat project. The quarterly report says that Apache spent $151 million on the project in the third quarter, and a total of $498 million so far this year. That includes an equity investment in the Pacific Trail Pipelines $15 million in the third quarter and $44 million so far this year.
