FERC grants Jordan Cove LNG and PCGP draft EIS
Veresen said that Jordan Cove Energy project and Pacific Connector gas pipeline have received a draft environmental impact statement from the U.S. FERC.
The draft EIS assesses the liquefied natural gas terminal proposed by Jordan Cove LNG for Coos Bay, Oregon and the Pacific Connector gas pipeline proposed by Pacific Connector, which would extend 232 miles from the terminal to Malin, Oregon. Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connecter each filed an application to the FERC for approval to construct the LNG export terminal and the pipeline in May and June 2013.
“Release of the draft EIS marks the completion of another important milestone in our project schedule,” said Don Althoff, President and CEO.
He further added that Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connector will continue to work with local, state and federal agencies, as well as the public, through the FERC review process.
