Veresen Gets OK for Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline

Posted on

Veresen Inc. announced that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued a final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline. Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connector formally filed applications with the FERC for approval to construct a liquefied natural gas export terminal at Coos Bay, OR and a 232-mile natural gas pipeline from Malin, OR to the LNG terminal in May and June 2013, respectively.
  FERC’s Notice of Schedule, issued in June 2015, provides for the issuance of a final order and certificates for Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connector on or before December 29, 2015. Veresen expects to obtain a FERC “Notice to Proceed” in mid-2016, leading to a final investment decision thereafter.
  Jordan Cove LNG will be among the largest commercial ventures in Oregon’s history, and will foster regional prosperity through job creation, community investment and other local benefits.
