Environment & Safety
Environmental protection and a commitment to the safety of our employees, contractors and the public are top priorities for Jordan Cove LNG planning, construction and operations.
Jordan Cove LNG has been working closely with federal, state, and local regulators, as well as with the community to ensure the facility is designed, built, and operated to meet or exceed the regulatory requirements.
Final environmental permits will identify the conditions for construction and operation of the terminal and Jordan Cove LNG is committed to complying with all permit conditions.
One example of Jordan Cove LNG’s commitment to the environment is the measures taken during the design phase in the preservation and creation of new wetlands. During construction, over 100 acres of land purchased by Jordan Cove LNG will be converted into a salt water estuary creating habitat for a wide variety of fish, birds and other species.
Jordan Cove LNG is designed to meet or exceed industry safety standards, codes, and regulations. A number of safeguards, protection and mitigation measures, including state-of the-art technologies and automatic emergency detection and shut-down systems, have been incorporated to ensure safe and secure operations, and protection of the community and environment.
Throughout development, construction, and on to operations, safety is a top priority for Jordan Cove LNG. This is why Jordan Cove LNG is committed to building the Southwest Oregon Regional Safety Center. The SORSC facility will house Incident Command for drills, exercises, and emergencies with JCLNG or Coos County, the Jordan Cove Security Center manned by Coos County sheriffs, a Technology center providing real time situational awareness and integrated communications to local agencies, and the Coast Guard providing qualified, trained, and available staff at all times. The Jordan Cove Fire Station will be sited in the Utility Corridor in a location suitable for providing a 4-minute response time in the event of a fire at the terminal. The Fire Station will be equipped with 3 pumper trucks, 1 ladder truck, and 1 heavy rescue / hazardous materials truck.
