The Jordan Cove Energy Project​ consists of a proposed liquefied natural gas export facility in Coos Bay and a 229-mile pipeline connecting Coos Bay and Malin.
The federal government – specifically the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission – sites LNG terminals in the United States. FERC is the lead agency for the proposed Jordan Cove project. Proposed LNG facilities also require approvals from authorities at the federal, state, county and city levels, and the state of Oregon plays a critical role in the review and siting of LNG facilities.

Below is more information about how the state evaluates proposed LNG facilities and the latest actions related to the Jordan Cove Energy Project and opportunities to weigh in on the project.
