Senator Wyden: Thank you for standing with our communities and opposing the Jordan Cove LNG project!

A Canadian fossil fuel corporation, Pembina, wants to build the Jordan Cove LNG 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 and the Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal on the North Spit in the Port of Coos Bay. 

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

A Canadian fossil fuel corporation, Pembina, wants to build the Jordan Cove LNG 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 and the Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal on the North Spit in the Port of Coos Bay. 

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

In the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic and national health emergency, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) voted to approve the Jordan Cove LNG project on the condition that it qualifies for permits from the State of Oregon.

Because of sustained opposition from our communities for over 15 years, Jordan Cove LNG has failed to qualify for any necessary state permits to dredge Coos Bay for the LNG terminal and to trench across Oregon for a 229-mile fracked gas pipeline.

Jordan Cove LNG cannot move forward without numerous missing state permits. Last spring, the Oregon DEQ denied Jordan Cove LNG’s Clean Water Act permit, and this February the Oregon DLCD denied Jordan Cove LNG’s Coastal Zone permit.  Anticipating another permit denial, Pembina withdrew its Removal-Fill application from the Oregon DSL in January.

Even though Jordan Cove LNG can’t start construction without essential state permits, with this decision the federal government is giving a Canadian fossil fuel corporation the power to start the process of seizing private property from over 90 southern Oregon landowners.

We all need to take action to prevent that from happening. 

Will you send an email to Senator Wyden thanking him for opposing Jordan Cove LNG and asking him to ensure  that the federal administration doesn’t use public focus on the global health crisis as an opportunity to ram eminent domain for Jordan Cove LNG through? 

UPDATE 3/19 3:30PM: Thanks to your emails and years of community pressure, Senator Wyden just came out against Jordan Cove LNG! Will you send him an email thanking him for standing with our communities?

Senator Wyden thank you for standing up to stop Jordan Cove LNG!

UPDATE 3/19 3:30PM: Thanks to your emails and years of calls, letters, and community pressure, Senator Wyden has announced that he is now officially opposed to Jordan Cove LNG! Will you send a message to Oregon Senator Wyden thanking him for standing up against Jordan Cove LNG and ask him to do everything in his power to ensure that Pembina and the federal administration don't use public focus on this global health crisis as an opportunity to push through eminent domain for Jordan Cove LNG?

Dear Senator Wyden,

Thank you for standing with our communities and opposing the Jordan Cove LNG project!

In the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic and national health emergency, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) conditionally approved the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline on March 19. The approval is conditioned on Pembina, the Canadian fossil fuel corporation behind the project, qualifying for critical permits from the state of Oregon.

After 15 years, Jordan Cove LNG has failed to qualify for any of the necessary state permits to dredge Coos Bay for an LNG export terminal and to trench across Oregon for a 229-mile fracked gas pipeline, threatening harm to Tribal resources, private landowners, drinking water, and fishing grounds along the way.

However, even though Jordan Cove LNG can’t start construction without essential state permits, with this decision the federal government is giving a Canadian fossil fuel corporation the power to start the process of seizing private property from over 90 southern Oregon landowners.

Thank you for opposing the Jordan Cove LNG project. Can we count on you to do everything in your power to ensure that the federal administration doesn’t use the public focus on this global health crisis as an opportunity to ram through eminent domain for Jordan Cove LNG?
