Some Southern Oregon residents are fighting the Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas export terminal  proposed in Coos Bay.

Jordan Cove LNG's federal environmental review has been pushed back to September.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission released a revised Notice of Schedule on Thursday, a day before the proposed liquefied natural gas export terminal was expected to receive its final environmental impact statement.

The final EIS is now expected to be released Sept. 30, with a 90-day federal authorization decision deadline moved to Dec. 29.

The delay, FERC noted, comes after "the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management required additional information regarding an alternative pipeline route affecting its lands."
