Colorado Officials to Visit Oregon about Proposed Pipeline

Posted on

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — Western Colorado officials will travel to Oregon next week to advocate for a project that would carry natural gas from Colorado to the Pacific Rim.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/2dgZUkD ) that then $5.3 billion project includes a pipeline from the Piceance (PEE’-awnts) basin to an export terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon.

Next week, Rio Blanco County Commissioner Shawn Bolton, Mesa County Commissioner Rose Pugliese will visit Coos Bay, where they will invite Oregon officials to come see the other side of the proposed pipe in western Colorado.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ruled against the project this spring, but local government officials in Colorado and Oregon are hoping to urge the agency to reconsider and approve it this time.
