Today, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) upheld the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s denial of a key permit for the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline.
Oil Change International response to FERC approval of Jordan Cove LNG
The Jordan Cove LNG project would be a climate disaster, responsible for at least 36 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions – more emissions than any other source in the state of Oregon if it were to be built. For over fifteen years, this project has been delayed, denied, and protested at every step of the way. Three key state permits have already been denied, rendering FERC’s approval likely impotent, and highlighting the fact that FERC acts as an industry rubber stamp, ignoring local opposition and state permitting decisions.
Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connector Pipeline Greenhouse Gas Emissions
The proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector pipeline would be a substantial source of climate pollution for decades to come. This briefing provides an estimate of the project lifecycle emissions and provides the climate rational for rejecting the proposed project.
Report: First Comprehensive Analysis of Climate Impact of Jordan Cove LNG Terminal & Pacific Connector Pipeline
A new report released by Oil Change International details, for the first time, the full accounting of greenhouse gas emissions that would result from the proposed Jordan Cove LNG Export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas Pipeline project in Oregon.
