Jordan Cove LNG will revitalize the Port of Coos Bay as a major port on the west coast of the United States; in addition, there will be other tangible benefits to the surrounding communities.
At peak construction, the terminal will create over 2,000 well-paying jobs, with approximately 180 permanent positions once the facility opens.
A boost for local businesses
The construction and operation of the facility will create revenue for local businesses, either as official suppliers or through increased business from a growing workforce.
Revenue from Jordan Cove LNG will help fund infrastructure projects and local services. The Project will generate $60 million per year in average property tax revenue during operation for the Community Enhancement Plan, and Coos, Douglas, Jackson, and Klamath counties, which includes $20 million annually from the pipeline alone.
Through the Community Enhancement Plan, Jordan Cove LNG will invest in the community of Coos Bay, helping to fund infrastructure projects, schools, police and fire departments, and other programs, facilities and services that will help the community thrive.
Jordan Cove and the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline also have a grant program to support programs and services to meet community needs.
