Tens of Thousands of Comments in Opposition to Jordan Cove LNG Reflect Wide Range of Concerns as Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Comment Period Closes Tens of thousands of comments from impacted landowners, tribal members, crabbers and anglers, health professionals, youth, and other community members across the region poured into the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) before its public comment period closed today on their draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and fracked gas pipeline. This markeda significant growth in opposition since 2016 when FERC considered and twice denied a previous application of the proposal. Thus far, over 40,000 of the comments submitted to FERC that have been counted are in opposition to the project. Notable commenters on the draft EIS included the State of Oregon, the Jackson County Commissioners, multiple Tribal governments, organizations representing commercial fishing interests, and a 302-page compendium of technical comments from the No LNG Exports Coalition.
