The Jordan Cove Project: Safe. Clean. Reliable.
The Jordan Cove Project will feature a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Coos County, Oregon, and a pipeline for the transportation of natural gas sourced from the United States and Canada.
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal
The proposed LNG Terminal will be located on the North Spit at the Port of Coos Bay, on a site zoned for industrial development, approximately 7 nautical miles from the entrance of the federally controlled and maintained navigation channel. The LNG Terminal will be situated on 240 acres of land owned by Jordan Cove, which is designated as an Enterprise Zone by Oregon.
The Project has all the essential characteristics for an optimal export facility. Some of those critical elements include:
- Proximity to active Asian markets
- Access to a reliable deepwater Port
- Diversified gas supply through existing gas gathering networks, pipelines and midstream facilities
- Connectivity to the gas trading hub near Malin, Oregon
- Strong political and community support
- No Panama Canal or hurricane risk
- Existing pipeline infrastructure in place to support exports
- LNG ships will transit 7 miles from the site to open ocean through a federally controlled and maintained navigational channel with very little other ship traffic
Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline
The proposed pipeline is a 36-inch diameter pipeline designed to transport natural gas approximately 229 miles from interconnections with the Ruby Pipeline and the Gas Transmission Northwest (GTN) Pipeline near Malin, Oregon, to the LNG Terminal in Coos County, Oregon.
The pipeline will cross approximately 40 miles of BLM-managed lands, approximately 30.58 miles of Forest Service managed lands in the Umpqua, Rogue River-Siskiyou, and Fremont-Winema National Forests, and approximately 0.31 mile of lands managed by the Bureau of Reclamation.
