Opponents of the Jordan Cove LNG project have been active. The most recent focus has been a permit application before the Department of State Lands.

The Jordan Cove liquid natural gas project has been kicking around in Oregon for more than a decade. The plan to build an export terminal and pipeline in the southwest part of the state was shot down by federal regulators in 2016, but it resurfaced under the Trump Administration. A final federal decision on the project could come by the end of the year.

Projects like this are huge and complex and there are a lot of moving parts. So, where does it stand? JPR's Liam Moriarty spoke with OPB environment reporter Jes Burns to get an update.
