A drawing of the Jordan Cove concept.

The plan for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export plant for Jordan Cove, near Coos Bay, is rolling further into regulatory review. 

The plan, resurrected after an earlier federal denial, requires a pipeline crossing the region from North Bend to the Klamath Falls area. 

State agencies make up a piece of the regulatory puzzle, and a comment period is now open on whether the state should issue a water quality permit. 

Michael Hinrichs is a spokesperson for the project.  He joins us to answer questions about Jordan Cove, the pipeline, and the regulatory review.
