Klamath Riverkeeper needs your help to stop the Jordan Cove-Pacific Connector pipeline.
Jordan Cove, a fossil fuel facility proposed by Canadian company Versen, would export over 1 billion cubic feet of fracked gas per day overseas from Coos Bay. The gas would be converted to liquefied natural gas on site at huge energy expense for transport in massive tankers. The project would also require a brand new 230 mile, 36” pipeline that would carry the gas from Malin near Klamath Falls, across Klamath, Jackson, Douglas and Coos counties in Oregon to Coos Bay.
The facility and pipeline threatens to pollute 400 waterways in salmon watersheds, to seize property from rural landowners using eminent domain, and would bulldoze a 95-foot wide linear clearcut across the whole route.
The company has been trying for 12 years now, had their various proposals challenged by rural communities, tribes, the State of Oregon, environmental and climate activists, and been shot down by the Federal Government. In 2017 they are starting all over again for a third time.
Representatives of the Jordan Cove gas export project and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) are coming to Klamath Falls on Friday March 24th, to talk about the proposed fracked gas export terminal and 230-mile Pacific Connector pipeline they want to put under the Klamath River. Come join us in telling Jordan Cove and public officials that we don’t want their pipeline!
Friday, March 24th 4-8pm – Klamath Falls
