COOS BAY — The backers of a proposed natural gas pipeline that could supply a future liquefied natural gas export facility in Coos Bay will hold an informational open house tonight.

Williams, the company seeking to build the 230-mile Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline, will bring together the various people and organizations involved in the building process, including representatives from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Before it can build, the company must receive a permit from FERC.

FERC previously gave the company a permit to build the pipeline when Jordan Cove Energy Partners intended to build an LNG import facility, which the pipeline would connect to. Now that Jordan Cove plans to build an export facility, both companies need new permits.

If Williams receives a FERC permit, it will be granted eminent domain to obtain private property along the proposed route, which would originate in Malin, Ore. and run through Klamath, Jackson, Douglas and Coos counties.

The open house will be held at the Red Lion Hotel from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. At 7 p.m., Williams representatives will give a presentation followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience.

Williams will host additional open houses in Douglas, Klamath and Jackson counties.
