Jordan Cove LNG in spotlight in Southern Oregon public comment sessions

As federal energy regulators began four days of public comment sessions on the Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas project, the developer boasted Monday that 82 percent of landowners along a 229-mile pipeline route have signed voluntary easement agreements. Pembina Pipeline Corp., the parent company of the Jordan Cove project, called that a sign that "the quiet majority of citizens" in the region support the controversial project.
