On September 15, 16, and 17, 2009, the Office of Energy Projects staff will be in Clackamas, Marion, Yamhill, Washington, Columbia and Clatsop Counties, Oregon to gather data related to the environmental analysis of the proposed Oregon LNG Terminal and Pipeline Project. Staff will examine specific locations along the proposed pipeline route variations filed by Oregon Pipeline Company on July 30, 2009, focusing on crossing locations of streams, wetlands, and riparian areas. Staff will also examine selected areas where the proposed Oregon LNG Pipeline and Palomar Pipeline routes would be parallel. This will assist staff in completing its comparative evaluation of environmental impacts of the two routes. Viewing of these areas is anticipated to be from public access points. In addition, staff will travel to the proposed LNG terminal site in Clatsop County, Oregon to evaluate issues regarding access to the LNG terminal and impacts on nearby industrial facilities.
All interested parties planning to attend must provide their own transportation. Those attending should meet at the following locations:
- Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 3 p.m. (PST) meet at the Molalla Gate Station, 10405 South Barnards Road (between Dryland Road and Elisha Road), and Molalla, Oregon.
