A Coos Bay Update: Coal & LNG

Pete Springer/OPB

The company that wants to build a natural gas export terminal and pipeline in Coos Bay got a big setback this week. Federal regulators ruled they’ll have to start over with the process for permitting the pipeline.

Meanwhile, the Port of Coos Bay has been working on a different energy project: exporting coal from the area. The names of the coal companies had not been made public, but Earthfix reporters have now discovered at least two of the companies involved.

We’ll find out the latest developments in both the LNG and coal export efforts with OPB Earthfix reporter Amelia Templeton.

Do you live in Coos Bay? How would exporting coal or LNG affect you? What questions do you have about either of these energy stories?
