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 the community to ensure the facility is designed, built, and operated to the highest of environmental standards.
Final environmental permits will identify the conditions for construction and operation of the terminal and Jordan Cove LNG is committed to remaining in full compliance at all times.
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 wetland. During construction, over 50 acres of land purchased by Jordan Cove LNG will be converted into a salt water estuary for the use of fish, birds and other habitat.
Jordan Cove LNG is designed to meet or exceed the most stringent 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. This new facility will house fire protection services, sheriff services, and the coast guard guaranteeing qualified, trained, and available staff at all times.
