The proposed Bradwood terminal on the Columbia River was not the only liquified natural gas venture in the state. Oregon LNG is still in the permitting process for a terminal they hope to build on the Skipanon Peninsula in Warrenton. The Federal Regulatory Energy Commission hasn’t approved that project yet, but FERC gave the go-ahead to the Jordon Cove Energy Project, which is trying to get local and state approval for a terminal in Coos Bay.
People on both sides of the LNG debate are asking: is the viability of these other projects in jeopardy in light of what happened to Bradwood Landing?
Do you live in a community where a liquified natural gas project has been proposed? Have you been involved in public meetings on LNG? What’s your reaction to NorthernStar’s announcements this week?
