Environmental Review for Oregon LNG Terminal Approved

Posted December 1, 2015 at 6:39am

The Casper Star-Tribune reports that “Federal regulators granted final environmental approval in late September for building a pipeline and port facilities for shipping Rocky Mountain natural gas to Asia via the Oregon coast.”  

“The final environmental impact statement prepared for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission found that building and operating the gas terminal and pipeline would cause some environmental damage.”  

“However, it noted the problems would be reduced to less than significant with mitigation measures proposed by project developers.”
