Jordan Cove LNG

Site of the proposed liquified natural gas plant in Coos Bay.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) released hearing dates for the Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal and Pacific Connector gas pipeline.

The proposed pipeline is to run from Malin to the LNG plant at Coos Bay, about 250 miles.

Though Oregon has denied a necessary clean water permit for the project, FERC is still considering permits for Jordan Cove LNG.

Hearings for the project will take place the week of June 24 in Coos, Douglas, Jackson, and Klamath counties.

Coos County: Monday, June 24, 1-8 p.m., Southwestern Oregon Community College Hale Center for the Performing Arts (1988 Newmark Avenue, Coos Bay, Ore.)

Douglas County: Tuesday, June 25, 1-8 p.m., South Umpqua High School (501 Chadwick Lane, Myrtle Creek.)

Jackson County: Wednesday, June 26, 1-8 p.m., Ramada Medford Hotel and Conference Center (2250 Biddle Road, Medford.)

Klamath County: Thursday, June 27, 1-8 p.m., Klamath County Fairgrounds/Event Center (3531 South 6th Street, Klamath Falls.)

According to Pembina of Calgary, Canada, the firm backing the pipeline:

“The Jordan Cove Project represents significant public interest and substantial public benefits to families and communities throughout Southern Oregon. This includes $110 million annually in new tax revenue for communities and 215 permanent jobs. These meetings are an important part of providing additional opportunities for the public to express their views,”
