Pembina Pipeline Corporation has received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for its Jordan Cove project in Oregon, Canada.
Pembina proposed the Jordan Cove LNG terminal and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline in 2017 and has since been working towards obtaining regulatory approvals.
The project includes a 369 km pipeline that would traverse four counties in southern Oregon and an LNG export terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon.
The approval from FERC represents the most significant step for the project since it was acquired.
Pembina Senior Vice President and Chief Legal Officer Harry Andersen said Pembina appreciates the review and that the approval emphasises Jordan Cove is an environmentally responsible project.
“The FERC decision is due in no small part to our many supporters who have turns out time and time again to voice their support for Jordan Cove and to show that the project is in the public interest in southern Oregon and the Rockies Basin,” said Mr Andersen.
In addition to the federal approval, Jordan Cove also recently received approval on all 14 local jurisdiction county and city applications and permits.
