Developers scrap Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas export facility

S&P Capital IQ ($):

Developers of the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export facility in Oregon told federal energy regulators they will not move forward with the project, confirming the end of an effort that has stalled for years amid regulatory and commercial challenges.

Jordan Cove Energy Project LP, a subsidiary of Canada’s Pembina Pipeline Corp., and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline, LP, a unit of Williams Cos. Inc. developing an associated pipeline, asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Dec. 1 to vacate federal authorizations to build the facilities, citing trouble getting state permits. The developers said they had completed a review of the project based on these setbacks (CP17-495 and CP17-494).

FERC had approved the terminal and associated facilities in March 2020. But a federal appeals court in a Nov. 1 order remanded the proceeding to the commission for the purpose of considering whether to suspend a permit for the pipeline to prevent property condemnations (Deborah Evans v. FERC, 20-1161). The developers’ Dec. 1 filing came in response to FERC telling them on Nov. 18 that they “should clarify whether they plan to move forward with the projects.”
