On March 29, 2019, the Federal Energy Regulatory Committee (FERC) opened up a 90-day public comment period on a critical permit needed to construct the 229 mile Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline and the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal. Take action today to stop Oregon from becoming a fracked gas export hub by letting FERC know why you oppose the Jordan Cove project.
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 Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline across private and public land, creating a 95-foot wide clear-cut 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 project would pollute 485 waterways and harm salmon, impact landowners, threaten tribal territories and burial grounds, and create the largest source of climate pollution in Oregon. The facility would be located in the tsunami hazard zone, placing thousands of people in the hazardous burn zone in case of an accident.
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. Take action today by submitting your public comment urging the Federal Energy Regulatory Committee to deny its certificate of need for this project once and for all.
Note: Only your name, city, state, and zip will be submitted along with your public comment. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
