Comments Filed with FERC on Harmful LNG Pipeline and Export Facility

On behalf of our client Natural Resources Defense Council, we prepared comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) pipeline and export terminal in Oregon. The Pacific Connector pipeline and the associated Jordan Cove LNG export terminal would traverse hundreds of miles of federal land, harm numerous federally protected species, including the iconic spotted owl, adversely impact local communities, and exacerbate climate change. Our comments raised a host of important issues that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and other agencies must consider before issuing any approval for this harmful and ill-conceived project.
