FERC Recommends Oregon Pipeline Open Season

July 2010 Vol. 237 No. 7

The FERC has recommended Oregon Pipeline LLC conduct an open season for the proposed 120-mile Oregon Pipeline – affiliated with Oregon LNG’s proposed LNG terminal in Warrenton, OR.

The Oregon LNG project has been designed to include a marine-receiving terminal, three full-containment 160,000 cubic meter LNG storage tanks and facilities to support ship berthing and cargo offloading.

Upon completion in 2013, the terminal will operate as a tolling facility, leasing regasification capacity to industry partners. Oregon Pipeline, an affiliated company, is planning to build the pipeline which will connect to the regional pipeline hub in Molalla, OR. The accompanying map shows the route of the proposed pipeline.
