Northwest Ore. LNG plant gets new life in exports

Published:

 

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- A proposed natural gas terminal on Oregon's north coast has been revived as a terminal based on exports.

The Oregonian reports the Oregon LNG terminal at Warrenton would have the capacity to import liquefied gas from abroad, but its economic rationale is based on exporting Canadian gas to Asia.

A proposed LNG terminal in Coos Bay also began as an import project and now is planned for exports. Export terminals are proposed on the coast of British Columbia, as well as the Gulf Coast of the United States.

The Oregon LNG plant also is proposing a shorter pipeline route that crosses fewer streams and affects fewer landowners.
