Wyoming Delegation Fighting For Gas Terminal
Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) says she and the rest of the Wyoming congressional delegation are working hard to win approval for a natural gas terminal and pipeline project on the west coast.
The Jordan Cove Project would build a liquefied natural gas,or LNG, terminal at Coos Bay, Oregon to allow for exports to countries in the far east. The project would also require construction of a roughly 230 mile pipeline to connect the terminal with the existing Ruby pipeline.
The project would open up new markets for natural gas from Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah.
Lummis says the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [FERC] initially refused to approve the project, bus says she and other supporters of the Jordan Cove Project are hoping to get that decision reversed.
