Urging LNG exports
Congressional members from the Rocky Mountain States are urging the U.S. Department of Energy to approve an application from the proposed Jordan Cove Energy Project to export liquefied natural gas out of Coos Bay. Twelve congress representatives from Wyoming, Utah and Colorado jointly signed a letter to U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz on Tuesday, Nov. 12, asking for quick action in approving the proposed facility on Coos Bay’s North Spit and the 230-mile long Pacific Connector feeder line to Malin, Oregon. Jordan Cove officials would like to export the gas to lucrative markets in Japan, China and Korea. The opening of a line from the Rocky Mountains to Malin resulted in a glut of natural gas on the West Coast. Indian tribes from those same states wrote a similar letter of support a week earlier.
