DLCD, Oregon LNG sign stay agreement

Oregon LNG and the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development signed a stay agreement extending the period by which DLCD has to review the project.

DLCD has to review whether Oregon LNG’s certification that its proposed bidirectional LNG terminal project in Warrenton, Oregon is consistent with Oregon’s coastal management program.

Under the agreement, the consistency review period for the project’s consistency certification is stayed for an additional 90 days. It started on April 13, 2015 and ends on July 12, 2015. The DLCD’s decision is due July 26, 2015.

Oregon LNG’s proposed bidirectional LNG terminal would be located on the East Bank Skipanon Peninsula near the confluence of the Skipanon and Columbia Rivers in Warrenton, Clatsop County, Oregon.

The terminal would include a marine terminal with a ship berth for LNG carrier; two full-containment storage tanks, each designed to store 160,000 cubic meters of LNG; natural gas pretreatment facilities; two liquefaction process trains, regasification facilities, and other related support structures and systems.
