Oregon LNG (OLNG), which plans to build an LNG facility on the Skipanon Peninsula, US, has filed a new action in the US District Court of Oregon against the US Army Corps of Engineers, which holds an easement to dredging disposal.
Magistrate Judge John V. Acosta ruled against OLNG in a prior filing against the Corps. OLNG claims that this latest filing is responsive to the Judge’s previous findings and recommendations. According the Daily Astorian, in the prior action, OLNG claimed that the Corps had essentially deserted the easement property, which includes land that OLNG has leased from the Port of Astoria as of 2004.
According to the Daily Astorian, Acosta said that OLNG “did not clearly manifest its intent to abandon its interest in the subject property,” and that the documentation that accompanied the filing was not sourced from an appropriate authority or person. OLNG now claims, however, that this has been resolved.
