Proposed Jordan Cove Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Export Project
This proposal threatens our rivers, fish, forests, wildlife, communities, private property rights and climate.
Company vows to refile after Feds deny Jordan Cove Project in 2016
The Jordan Cove LNG Export project was denied twice by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in 2016 because of lack of need for the project and eminent impacts to landowners along the pipeline route.
Now hopeful under our new administration, the company vows to refile for a third round, continuing to hold landowners hostage and threaten southern Oregon's rivers, forests, communities and climate.
Veresen, a Canadian energy company, has been working for years on a massive fossil fuel infrastructure plan called Jordan Cove to export fracked gas from Canada and the Rockies through southern Oregon and onto ships bound for Asia from Coos Bay. This plan would involve the construction of the 232-mile Pacific Connector pipeline and permanent 95-foot wide clear cut through southwest Oregon’s forests, farms, and salmon filled rivers including the Rogue.

Rogue Riverkeeper and a diverse coalition are working hard to build grassroots support for the protection of our rivers, private property, forests, gas rates, communities, climate, and our home. Southern Oregon has become the hot spot for opposition to this project and the momentum is growing! But we need your help to show our state agencies and decision makers that this project would be a backwards step for our natural resources, our climate, and for Oregon.
