The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) are accepting public comments on an application from the Jordan Cove Energy Project, said DEQ in its latest release. 

The project calls for building a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on the North Spit of Coos Bay near North Bend and a connecting roughly 230-mile pipeline near Malin that would cross Klamath, Jackson, Douglas and Coos counties.

According to the official announcement, the facility would be able to handle up to 7.8 million tons of liquefied natural gas each year and be capable of receiving and loading ocean-going carriers exporting the liquefied natural gas.

The project would include the following elements: underground utilities and a gas feed to the terminal, a marine slip and access channel, a marine offloading facility, a regional emergency response center, temporary workforce housing and related road and highway improvements.

The project will also involve dredging four areas abutting the Coos Bay Channel and placing dredged material in four locations. The connecting Pacific Connector project would include installing a 36-inch diameter welded steel gas pipe and a compressor station near Malin.

Construction in wetlands and waterways will include trenching, blasting, fluming, damming and pumping, horizontal directional drilling and other methods.

The liquefied natural gas facility would affect waterways and wetlands on the North Spit, in Coos Bay, at dredge disposal sites, and at the Kentuck Slough golf course mitigation site. The Pacific Connector project would affect waterways and wetlands in Klamath, Jackson, Douglas and Coos counties,” according to DEQ.

DEQ’s public comment period on the Section 401 Water Quality Certification application closes on July 21, 2018.
