Public Comment on Clatsop Diking Funds
- Business & Finance
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, is seeking public comment on its plan to accept funds from Clatsop Diking Improvement Company #9 on behalf of Oregon Liquefied Natural Gas.
The Portland District will review Oregon LNG’s proposed request to modify federally constructed flood risk reduction projects, to include horizontal directional drilling, auger boring, or over-crossing operations across such projects; and review potential effects to the Columbia River Federal Navigation Channel of horizontal directional drilling and dredging to create a ship turning basin.
Oregon LNG’s liquefied natural gas terminal project includes a bidirectional LNG terminal with vaporization and liquefaction facilities, a pier with a ship berth for an LNG carrier, a turning basin in the Columbia River, and an 86.8-mile-long, 36-inch-diameter bidirectional pipeline from the terminal through Clatsop, Tillamook, and Columbia Counties in Oregon and Cowlitz County in Washington.
