The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has released its Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and review of the Jordan Cove Project.
The Jordan Cove Project will build a safe, clean, reliable natural gas pipeline and a liquified natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Coos County, Oregon.
The proposed LNG terminal will be situated on 0.97 km2 of land, which the proposed 36 inch (914 mm) diameter pipeline will transport natural gas to for approximately 269 km from interconnections with the Ruby Pipeline and the Gas Transmission Northwest (GTN) pipeline.
Beginning in September 2017, the FEIS comprises a comprehensive review process of Jordan Cover including entire environmental, safety and security reviews, developed with input from federal and state agencies and many other stakeholders.
In addition to the federal regulatory process, the Jordan Cove project continues to experience positive momentum in terms of local permitting processes, voluntary land easements and the engagement with surrounding communities.
The FEIS represents the final step in the federal environmental review process before an order is issued by the commission approving the project, which is anticipated for February 2020.
Pembina is the parent company of the Jordan Cove project.
