The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) is the agency charged with review and approval of Jordan Cove Energy Project’s LNG terminal and Pacific Connector Gas Company’s associated pipeline (“Jordan Cove Project”). Upon receipt of an application, FERC initiates review of the potential environmental impacts of a proposed project under the National Environmental Policy Act (“NEPA”). The NEPA process entails substantial public comment periods and results in both and draft environmental impact statement (“EIS”) and final EIS prior to FERC issuing a final decision on the application.

Jordan Cove will submit its applications in August at which time the public will be able to access all information submitted to FERC. We currently anticipate FERC issuing a decision on the applications in November of 2018. Information submitted to FERC can be accessed on FERC’s website through its elibrary at under the pre-filing docket number: PF17-4.

The following draft documents have been submitted to FERC for the Jordan Cove LNG Terminal and can be found on Docket No. PF17-4. Draft documents submitted for the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline can be found here. These documents will be updated as the Project moves through the pre-filing process.
