Some of those who oppose the Oregon Liquefied Natural Gas project in Warrenton use the slogan, “We deserve better.” And in fact, the people of Warrenton and Clatsop County DO deserve better than what they have now. Specifically, they deserve:
Since we started sponsoring these messages last month, we’ve heard from many people in Warrenton, thanking us for sharing facts about the Oregon Liquefied Natural Gas Project. They’ve told us they were glad to learn that the Draft Environmental Impact Report released by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission says “most impacts would be reduced to less-than-significant levels.”
The Oregon Liquefied Natural Gas Project will be safe and environmentally sound. And it will brighten the economic future of Warrenton and Clatsop County with many millions of dollars in new tax revenues every year to meet both immediate and long-term needs.
The Oregon Liquefied Natural Gas Project has gone through a decade of careful planning to create a safe, environmentally sound LNG export facility on the Skipanon Peninsula, working with dozens of government agencies in the process. Building on the excellent safety record of the LNG industry, Oregon LNG has followed a transparent process to learn from the experience of plants around the world and incorporate best practices into the Warrenton plant.
The Oregon Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project, under review in Warrenton, would generate $90 million per year in new tax revenue for schools, public safety, parks and recreation, and more. It would create thousands of good construction jobs for five years, hundreds of direct permanent jobs, and many indirect jobs through its ongoing support of local businesses.
