Oregon high court won’t hear LNG plant’s appeal



ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Supreme Court won’t hear an appeal brought by a company that proposes a liquefied natural gas plant in Clatsop County but failed to get a pipeline permit for it.

Opponents say the decision handed down Thursday casts doubt on the project’s future, the Daily Astorian reported.

The Supreme Court’s action caps a series of reversals for Oregon LNG, the developer that proposes to export natural gas from the U.S. drilling boom to Asia. The pipeline would bring gas to the coastal terminal, where it would be superchilled and condensed for shipment.
