Stop Jordan Cove LNG
Have you heard? Jordan Cove Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is being considered AGAIN! After denying the project twice in 2016 under the Obama administration, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) accepted Jordan Cove’s pre-filing application in February, placing it back on the table.
FERC turned down Jordan Cove in March 2016, as well as the proposed 232-mile Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline that would link to it, and then rejected a request that the pipeline be reconsidered last December. But now the company feels like it has a shot under the Trump administration announcing plans to refile, and started that process February.
The proposed pipeline would carry natural gas across four counties on its way to a plant in Coos Bay. From there, it would be liquefied and loaded on ships -- putting Oregon’s clean water and air in jeopardy, as well undermining the region’s investment in salmon restoration. We are running out of time the comment period ends July 10, so sign and share with friends and family now to STOP Jordan Cove.
