Army Corps of Engineers Requests FERC to Consider Alternatives in Jordan Cove Energy Terminal Final EIS

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, (COE) has submitted extensive comments on FERC’s draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Jordan Cove Energy Project’s (JCEP) proposed LNG import/export terminal in Coos Bay, Ore.  COE requested, among other things, that (1) FERC consider the proposed Oregon LNG export terminal in Warrenton, Ore., and proposed LNG export terminals in British Columbia as possible alternatives to JCEP’s proposal, and (2) FERC’s environmental analysis consider the JCEP and Oregon LNG projects “collectively and in contrast to each other” since both projects have “identical Purpose[s] and Need[s]” and are occurring in the same timeframe.
