ODOE leading state review of LNG facilities

Featured Content

Two proposed Liquefied Natural Gas export terminals in Oregon have generated a lot of interest. While the Energy Policy Act of 2005 gives the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission exclusive authority to approve or deny the siting, construction, expansion or operation of these LNG terminals, a number of Oregon agencies, including ours, have been actively involved in the federal siting process. The Governor designated the Oregon Department of Energy as the lead state agency for ensuring that Oregon’s interests are addressed in the FERC siting process for LNG facilities and associated pipeline projects. Additionally, ODOE has been delegated the responsibilities for emergency preparedness for LNG facilities. Two LNG companies formally filed applications with FERC this year to build and operate export facilities in Oregon: the Jordan Cove Energy Project near Coos Bay and Oregon LNG in Warrenton. To provide answers about the status of the projects and other information on the federal and state siting process, as well as the safety and security requirements each applicant must address, please go here.
