There was a sense that the federal rejection of the Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant and pipeline was not the final word. And indeed, it was not.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission--FERC--nixed pipeline and plant in part because they had not shown any demand for LNG overseas.
Project managers recently announced an agreement for a Japanese utility to buy some of the gas from the proposed export terminal. Appeal papers should be filed with FERC anytime now.
Michael Hinrichs from the Jordan Cove office and George Angerbauer from Williams, the pipeline company, join us.
