Oregon LNG has filed an application to the FERC for approval to build and operate a bi-directional LNG terminal, which can both import and export LNG at a site in Warrenton, Oregon. The project also includes an 85 mile interstate gas pipeline that will interconnect with the existing pipeline network, and allow for the export of domestically produced natural gas.
Located on the Skipanon Peninsula in Warrenton, Oregon, the proposed facility will have capacity to export 9.6 million tpy of LNG, and regasify up to 500 million ft3/d of gas during regional supply emergencies. The facility will also inlcude two 160 000 m3 LNG storage tanks.
The FERC filing follows more than eight years of environmental studies and over 250 meetings with local, state, federal, and tribal agencies. Oregon LNG’s FERC application must still undergo additional environmental review and FERC approval. Additionally, the project must comply with all applicable permitting requirements and regulations in order to be implemented.
