Oregon Agencies Oppose Conditional FERC Approval of Oregon LNG Export Terminal

The Oregon Department of Energy and the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development filed motions to intervene with FERC in the Oregon LNG export terminal proceedings requesting that FERC abandon its practice of issuing conditional orders approving LNG export projects before receiving authorizations delegated to the states under the Clean Water Act, the Coastal Zone Management Act and the Clean Air Act, and before engaging in consultation under the Endangered Species Act. The agencies termed such orders “arbitrary and capricious,” alleging that they do not permit a balance of the public interest under the statutes. The motions to intervene and the complete docket for the Oregon LNG project can be found on eLibrary by searching for Docket No. CP09-6
