Officials from Jordan Cove Friday responded to a ruling earlier this week by the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals and a press release published.

Jordan Cove officials issued a statement which reads as follows:

On November 27, 2017, Jordan Cove received direction from the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals ("LUBA") to remedy eight outstanding issues related to the Jordan Cove Liquefied Natural Gas ("LNG") facility (the "LNG Terminal") conditional use permit, which was previously approved by Coos County. Many of these issues have already been addressed in the new application submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in September 2017.

"For a large-scale development project such as Jordan Cove, the requirement to remedy minor portions of the LUBA permit is common and not unexpected," said Betsy Spomer, President of Jordan Cove. "We plan to fully address the items that require further action and expect to remain on schedule with our other permits and the current project timelines."

As part of the review and in support of the LNG Terminal, LUBA confirmed that Jordan Cove does not adversely impact the operations of the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport.

Jordan Cove is committed to providing all necessary information to all agencies involved in the process and most importantly, will meet the stringent regulations in place here in Oregon. Once Jordan Cove completes the additional work, the supplemental information will be submitted to the appropriate agencies for approval from Coos County.

LNG sent the statement Friday following a Nov. 29 article in The World which announced the LUBA ruling. Information from the Nov. 29 article was obtained from a press release sent to The World Tuesday by The Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition.
