Stop Jordan Cove LNG & the Pacific Connector Pipeline

Stop Jordan Cove LNG & the Pacific Connector Pipeline

A Canadian fossil fuel corporation, Pembina, wants to build the Jordan Cove Energy Project to export fracked liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Canada and the Rockies through southern Oregon to Coos Bay and then to Asia. This would require the 229-mile Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline across private and public land, creating a permanentclearcut through southwest Oregon’s forests, farms and rivers.

The pipeline would terminate in an export facility in southern Oregon on the North Spit in the Port of Coos Bay. This facility would be located in the tsunami hazard zone, placing thousands of people in the hazardous ...

A Canadian fossil fuel corporation, Pembina, wants to build the Jordan Cove Energy Project to export fracked liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Canada and the Rockies through southern Oregon to Coos Bay and then to Asia. This would require the 229-mile Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline across private and public land, creating a permanentclearcut through southwest Oregon’s forests, farms and rivers.

The pipeline would terminate in an export facility in southern Oregon on the North Spit in the Port of Coos Bay. This facility would be located in the tsunami hazard zone, placing thousands of people in the hazardous burn zone in the case of an accident. This project would pollute more than 400 waterways and harm salmon, impact hundreds of landowners, threaten tribal territories and burial grounds, raise energy prices, and create the largest source of climate pollution in Oregon.

The project faces opposition from a broad coalition that includes landowners, existing small businesses that would be impacted, tribes, health professionals, climate action and water quality advocates, and more.

The state of Oregon has a critical decision-making role for the project. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality already denied an important permit needed for the project to move forward based on potential impacts to clean water. Right now, the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) is reviewing the project to determine whether it is consistent with state requirements to protect coastal resources.

Take action today by telling the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) to deny the Coastal Zone Management Act Certification for this project. Oregon needs to transition to clean energy that can create jobs and protect our quality of life, not develop the first fracked gas export terminal on the West Coast.

The Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) opened a 60-day public comment period on the coastal impacts of Pembina’s proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline. Will you send a comment to tell Oregon to stop Jordan Cove LNG, for once and for all? Please add your personal comments to the end of the sample email below.

DLCD is conducting a review on whether the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and fracked gas pipeline are consistent with the Oregon Coastal Management Program. If DLCD finds the Canadian fossil fuel corporation’s fracked gas export project is not consistent with Oregon’s Coastal Management Program, the project cannot move forward.

Your comments are due by Saturday, September 21, and Oregon DLCD must make a decision by October 12, 2019.
