Jordan Cove energy project withdraws application for key Oregon permit
The Jordan Cove Energy Project has abruptly withdrawn its application for a key permit from the state of Oregon.
In a letter dated Jan. 23, the project told the Oregon Department of State Lands that the company was withdrawing the application effective Friday.
No reason was given, but earlier this week, the department had denied Jordan Cove's request for a fifth deadline extension for the application.
It's not immediately clear what the withdrawal means for the Jordan Cove project.
The project has drawn statewide protests, including in the governor's office at the Capitol (see photo).
Pembina — the Canadian company behind the Jordan Cove project — wants to build a 229 mile-long pipeline to a new liquefied natural gas export terminal in Coos Bay, on Oregon's south coast.
