Pacific Gas Connector and Jordan Cove LGN Terminal
The Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline project is a proposed 235-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline designed to transport up to 1.2 million dekatherms of natural gas per day from interconnects near Malin, Oregon, to the Jordan Cove LNG terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon, where the natural gas will be liquefied for transport to serve overseas markets. The pipeline will cross federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Forest Service, Bureau of Reclamation, as well as private lands. BLM-managed lands include four BLM districts: Coos Bay, Roseburg, Medford and Lakeview/Klamath Falls. It’s estimated that 41.9 miles of BLM-managed lands will be crossed by the pipeline. Approximately 30.56 miles of National Forest System lands will be crossed in the Umpqua, Rogue River-Siskiyou and Fremont-Winema National Forests. The pipeline would cross salmon and steelhead streams, including the Coos, Coquille, Rogue, South Umpqua and Klamath rivers. Jordan Cove LNG Terminal would be located within the Port of Coos Bay on the North Spit of lower Coos Bay in Oregon. In December of 2016 FERC denied both projects BUT in 2017 both projects are reapplying for construction.
