FERC Sets Jordan Cove Energy Project Hearing Dates


The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has set the Draft Environmental Impact Statement public hearing dates for the Jordan Cove Energy Project. FERC has scheduled the public review meetings to allow interested parties to provide specific comments on the analyses and finding for the Draft EIS that was issued in March. Because of the interest in the project, FERC allotted extra time and has scheduled four seven-hour public hearings. FERC officials are encouraging people to utilize the time before 5pm since everyone will be allowed into the center but the hearing will end at 8pm. Jordan Cove officials responded to today’s announcement saying the LNG represents significant public interest and substantial public benefits which includes $110 million annually in new tax revenue for communities and 215 permanent family wage jobs. They add the meetings are an important part of providing additional opportunities for the public to express their views on exactly these benefits. The first of four hearings will be held at the Hales Center for Performing Arts on the SWOCC Campus starting at 1pm on June 24th.
