Recently, opponents to the project received some great news – the Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) denied Pembina’s request to extend the timeline on submitting additional materials for their Fill-Removal Permit Application.
In the denial letter, DSL listed several extensions that had already been provided and outlined “critical information” that Pembina has failed to provide in spite of these extensions. As a result, Pembina ultimately withdrew their application, forfeiting their application fee.
This particular permit is absolutely crucial for the Jordan Cove Project to move forward. Without it, Pembina cannot dredge sediment out of the Coos Bay navigation travel in order to make it suitable for the huge LNG tankers.
While we pause briefly to celebrate this victory, the battle certainly isn’t over.
