U.S. Coast Guard Releases Letter of Recommendation for Oregon LNG

The U.S. Coast Guard has determined that “the applicable portions of the Columbia River and its approaches are not currently suitable, but could be made suitable for the type and frequency of LNG marine traffic” contemplated by the Oregon LNG project. Oregon LNG Peter Hansen expressed satisfaction in a press release, saying that the conclusions in the Coast Guard’s Letter of Recommendation demonstrate “the benefit of putting local concerns first.” Oregon LNG also notes that it will be the only U.S. West Coast terminal able to accept Q-Max class LNG carriers.
