Feds Will Not Reconsider Their Denial Of Jordan Cove LNG Terminal

"Federal regulators announced Friday they won't reconsider their decision to deny permission for the Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas export terminal in Coos Bay and a feeder pipeline stretching halfway across the state.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a decision in March denying an application to build the $7.6 billion project.

Commissioners said backers failed to show enough of a public need for the project to overcome the negative impact on landowners along the Pacific Connector pipeline's 232-mile route. Essentially, regulators said the backers hadn't demonstrated any demand for the project."
