This notice announces the extension of the public scoping process and comment period for Jordan Cove Energy Project LP's (Jordan Cove) proposed liquefaction project in Coos County, Oregon, in Docket No. PF12-7-000, and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline LP's (Pacific Connector) proposed pipeline project crossing portions of Klamath, Jackson, Douglas, and Coos Counties, Oregon, in Docket No. PF12-17-000. In addition to extending the scoping period, the Commission staff will conduct two additional public scoping meetings, with dates and times to be announced at a later date. Please note that the scoping period will now close on October 29, 2012.

On August 2, 2012, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission), in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (Forest Service), and the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management (BLM), issued a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Planned Jordan Cove Liquefaction and Pacific Connector Pipeline Projects, Requests for Comments on Environmental Issues, and Notice of Public Scoping Meetings (NOI). The NOI solicited comments on the potential environmental impacts of the proposed projects and announced the time and location of four public meetings. The environmental comments received will allow the staffs of the Commission, Forest Service, and BLM to focus attention on issues important to the public during our preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the projects.

You can attend any of the scoping meetings to provide verbal comments.[1] In lieu of or in addition to providing comments at the meetings, you can submit written comments to the Commission. In order for your written comments to be considered and addressed in the EIS, they should be properly filed with the Commission.
