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.

Governor Brown: Stand Up to Trump

Will you tell Governor Brown that she must challenge Trump's pro-pipeline Executive Orders and take every action to maintain Oregon’s authority to deny the Jordan Cove LNG state permits to  protect the waters of the state and the safety of Oregonians?

It’s critical that Governor Brown challenges these executive orders, and to do that she needs to hear from you.
