Early in the development process, Oregon LNG met with local leaders about building a facility and performed a thorough analysis of sites across the Northwest. Of the LNG sites proposed for the state, Oregon LNG believes it has the superior site.

Oregon LNG’s terminal will be located on the Skipanon Peninsula in Warrenton, Oregon, near where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean. This location does not require the large ships delivering LNG to navigate under the Astoria bridge or further upriver past the city of Astoria.

Additionally, Oregon LNG voluntarily engaged the local community and sought and received local approval for its project before starting the regulatory process with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the lead federal agency.

The project will provide much needed family-wage jobs in the Lower Columbia River region, which has been hard hit by the financial crisis of 2008.
