Project Benefits

The Jordan Cove Energy Project is a proposed new, state-of the art liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal that will establish the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay as the premier energy center on the U.S. Pacific coast. The infrastructure built by and for the Jordan Cove Energy Project includes:

  • Jordan Cove LNG Terminal
  • South Dunes Power Plant
  • Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline

The aggregate investment for these facilities will be greater than $7.5 billion, provide long-term stable employment for more than 150 direct hire personnel at wages significantly above the area average.

The Jordan Cove Project’s ideal location in the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay in Coos County, Oregon provides:

  • A catalyst for regional economic development through job creation, increased port utilization and increased access to competitive reliable sources of energy

  • Superior site characteristics through its utilization of a large, 170-acre parcel for the LNG terminal and a 190 acre parcel for the South Dunes Power Plant in an existing marine industrial port development area, remote from residential development

  • A location in the Port of Coos Bay that allows for short inland transit distance via an existing, Federally maintained channel

The associated South Dunes Power Project provides a local source of power generation with the capability of reinforcing the local electric grid.

Jordan Cove will provide enhanced fire and safety infrastructure and services:

  • Southwest Oregon Regional Safety Center (SORSC) fire and safety complex:

     • Full-time professionally staffed fire station;
     • Crews dedicated to the Jordan Cove facility;
     • Coos County Sheriff’s substation;
     • Offices for the Port and US Coast Guard; and
     • Training rooms and outdoor training area.

  • Jordan Cove will partner with SOCC to create a unique LNG Fire Training Center

     • Jordan Cove is partnering with Southwest Oregon Community College (SOCC) to add LNG fire training to the SOCC curriculum offering – a first on the West Coast.
     • Expanded use of LNG as a maritime and surface transportation fuel will increase the need for special LNG training – SOCC and Coos Bay will be poised to be the West Coast center for this specialized training.

The Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline provides new supplies of natural gas to underserved areas of Douglas and Jackson counties.
