FERC to prepare Jordan Cove LNG EIS

FERC issues notice of intent to prepare Jordan Cove LNG EIS

The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a notice of intent to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export project in Oregon. 

In addition, FERC will prepare an EIS for the accompanying 233-mile-long pipeline.

The FERC is the lead federal agency for the preparation of the document. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Department of Energy, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Forest Service, and the Bonneville Power Administration are cooperating agencies and can adopt the EIS for their respective purposes and permitting actions.

The commission will use this EIS in its decision-making process to determine whether the Jordan Cove LNG terminal is in the public interest and the Pacific Connector Pipeline is in the public convenience and necessity.

With the notice, FERC opened the scoping period inviting comments on the proposed project. The scoping period ends on July 10.

The LNG terminal would include five liquefaction trains and two full containment LNG storage tanks. It would be designed to liquefy about 1.04 billion cubic feet per day (7.8 mtpa) of LNG for export to markets across the Pacific Rim.

Following the agreement under which Pembina Pipeline Corporation will acquire Veresen in a transaction valued at C$9.7 billion ($7.10 billion), the Jordan Cove LNG project will be 100 percent owned by Pembina.
