Fruits Of Fracking Proposed For Transport

The global glut of fossil fuels is good for consumers; paying less than two bucks a gallon for gasoline is a big benefit. 

But part of the glut traces back to increased oil and gas production in the United States, largely because of fracking. 

Sightline Institute, an environmental and policy think tank, assembled a report on facilities proposed for transporting the products of fracking in Oregon and Washington. 

Those facilities include the planned Jordan Cove gas export terminal near Coos Bay, and the long pipeline proposed to run to it.  Sightline Policy Director/report author Eric de Place outlines the report, and how it might be used.
