Description:

The Jordan Cove LNG Project (Docket No. CP17-495-000) includes the construction and operation of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal on the North Spit of Coos Bay in Coos County, Oregon.  The terminal would include gas inlet facilities, a metering station, a gas conditioning plant, five liquefaction trains and associated equipment, two full-containment LNG storage tanks, an LNG transfer line, LNG ship loading facilities, a marine slip, a marine offloading facility, a new access channel between the Coos Bay Navigation Channel and the new marine slip, and enhancements to the existing Coos Bay Navigation Channel at four turns.  In addition, the terminal would include emergency and hazard, electrical, security, control, and support systems, administrative buildings, and a temporary workforce housing facility.  The LNG terminal would be designed to liquefy about 1.04 billion cubic feet per day of LNG for export to markets across the Pacific Rim.

The Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline (Docket No. CP-17-494) includes the construction and operation an approximately 229-mile-long, 36-inch-diameter interstate natural gas transmission pipeline and associated aboveground facilities.  The pipeline would originate near Malin in Klamath County, Oregon, traverse Douglas and Jackson Counties, and terminate (at the LNG Terminal) in Coos County, Oregon.  The pipeline would be capable of transporting about 1.2 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas.  The associated aboveground facilities would include the new Klamath Compressor Station (61,500 horsepower) near Malin, Oregon; 3 new meter stations; 5 new pig launchers and receivers; 17 mainline block valves; and a gas control communication system.

On May 10, 2021, the project sponsors filed a letter with the Commission stating that they are pausing the development of the project.
