Stand Up For Oregon! No LNG. No Pipeline.
Canadian and out-of-state energy companies want to build two separate fracked gas export projects in Oregon to export Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) overseas. The Jordan Cove project proposed in Southern Oregon and the Oregon LNG project proposed near Astoria would be the largest greenhouse gas emitters in the state contributing to climate change.
No LNG exports is a coalition of organizations, landowners, businesses, climate activists, conservationists and concerned citizens working to keep these projects out of Oregon.
You can Stand Up for Oregon by taking action to protect our home from fossil fuel exports and working towards a clean and renewable energy future!
Extensions for FERC decision and DSL removal-fill permits
On Friday, May 6, the Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) announced that they have extended their deadline until June 10 to decide on the removal-fill permit for the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline.
On Monday May 9, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) announced that they were granting the rehearing requests from the companies for the limited purpose of reconsideration. This functions as a "tolling order" or extension for FERC to give themselves more time to review information and decide if they are going to rehear the case. Until then, the denial for the project still stands.
