Protect the Oregon Coast from Jordan Cove LNG - Oregon PSR
The Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) allows Oregon to decide if Jordan Cove LNG’s application to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is aligned with Oregon’s local and state laws meant to protect Oregon’s Coastal Zone. This is our chance to tell Oregon to protect the Oregon Coast from damaging fracked gas infrastructure in the form of Pembina's proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal. If built, the project would cause irreparable harm to crab and fish wildlife and require extensive dredging in Coos Bay, OR.
Jordan Cove LNG would be built in a tsunami hazard zone, threatening the health and safety of thousands of people on the coast. It would be the largest source of climate pollution in a coastal region that is already feeling the impacts of climate change. It would also be one of the largest dredging projects in Oregon’s history - threatening cultural resources, and the local crabbing, fishing, and shellfish industries.
Because the State of Oregon already denied the 401 Clean Water Act Permit for the LNG terminal and pipeline, and because Jordan Cove has not secured land use permits on the coast, this project clearly fails to compy with local and state laws. Oregon must deny the CZMA certificate for Jordan Cove LNG.
