- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Just wanted to mention that I was reading through some old Vernonia Freedoms from the 1970s in which Paul Seamons wrote a series of articles about the drilling of the Mist natural gas wells outside of Mist, OR. In the articles I learned that the natural gas pumped from these wells is used for the production of fertilizers and is not used to heat peoples homes. This is just one source of natural gas I know of in Oregon that is not being utilized for heat, does anyone know of any others? Also, if the natural gas needs of this region are suppose to grow by around 1 billion ft3 in the region, we may want to think about conservation before we start on an unsustainable path of transporting natural gas half way across the world. Look at the globe, you can fit Asia, North America, Europe, Africa, South America, and the Atlantic into the Pacific Ocean. That is a very long distance to ship natural gas when we can produce it in Oregon.
Also, does anyone know how a LNG terminal would hold up to a magnitute 8.8 earthquake or 7.2 aftershocks?
