On Jordan Cove Export Terminal Project
It has been ten long years since Jordan Cove first came on the scene with the insane idea of placing an LNG terminal in the narrow Coos Bay Harbor. With no actual cleared permits to date, and currently three land use appeals still in the works, we react to the release of the FERC Draft. There are a lot of industry expectations for this project to succeed. See reference link.at SWOCC's Hales Performing Arts Center in Coos Bay
