Jordan Cove Comment Period Comes To A Close

Veresen, Inc.

A federal comment period on the Jordan Cove gas terminal plan just closed (Friday 2/13), and it closed with a bang. 

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission--FERC--got a pile of comments in opposition, as well as some in favor. 

The Western Environmental Law Center and other environmental groups shepherded and encouraged thousands of comments taking issue with the plan for the terminal and a long pipeline to it. 

The opposition includes an objection to the process of fracking to capture the gas to be sent through the pipeline to the terminal. 

Conservation group members join us to look at what's next.
