Governor Kulongowski and the Oregon Department of Energy have said that we do not need LNG. Our gas utilities are requesting lower rates due to stable and abundant domestic natural gas sources from shale gas. An LNG terminal in Coos Bay would either import foreign gas through Oregon to bring to the California market, or the terminal would be used to export natural gas from shale gas in Wyoming to Japan. Neither of these options benefits Oregonians.
How would Kitzhaber & Dudley work to defend rural farm, timber, and fishing families from the unnecessary risk of new pipelines for LNG?
