Protesters turn to LNG terminals
Proposed coal and propane export terminals in Oregon are stalled or dead in the water now. Now environmentalists are turning their attention to two proposed Liquefied Natural Gas or LNG terminals in Oregon.
Veresen proposes a 232-mile pipeline across Southern Oregon to transport fracked natural gas from Canada and the U.S. at an export terminal in Coos Bay, in the Jordan Cove Project.
Oregon LNG proposes an 86-mile pipeline and export terminal in Warrenton, near Astoria.
Protesters are organizing a rally at the state Capitol in Salem to mount public pressure against both LNG projects, on Tuesday, May 26, at 11 a.m. Featured speaker is Robert F. Kennedy Jr., of the Waterkeeper Alliance. Other speakers will include landowners opposed to LNG pipelines through their property, tribal and environmental leaders and elected officials. Critics plan to march on the Department of State Lands.
