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.

Now, we’re calling on the Oregon Congressional delegation to add their voices in calling for a moratorium on approval and construction of new gas pipelines and LNG export facilities from FERC. Please add your name below to call on your Member of Congress to join in asking FERC to protect the health and safety of workers and the communities living adjacent to proposed fracked gas projects by stopping approval and construction of these projects during the COVID-19 pandemic.
