Oregon Congresspersons Ask FERC How It Handles Land Rights Issues for Oregon LNG Project

Citing the recent federal court ruling regarding Oregon LNG’s rights to the land necessary to construct its proposed LNG export terminal in Warrenton, Ore., Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and Representative Suzanne Bonamici have sent a letter to FERC asking how it “handles situations where the project under review does not or may not have the ability to construct a facility because the applicant lacks an unencumbered right to the land.”  The letter also asks if FERC “has ever suspended its review of a project until such a question is resolved.”
