Top Trump adviser calls for reviving controversial natural gas project on Oregonís coast

A top adviser to President Donald Trump on Thursday appeared to throw the administration’s support behind a proposed controversial liquefied national gas terminal in Oregon that had been rejected by regulators during the Obama administration.

“The first thing we’re going to do is we’re going to permit an LNG export facility in the Northwest,” said Gary Cohn, chair of the White House National Economic Council. “Just think of the transport time from the Northwest to Japan versus anywhere else. Then we’ve got to put facilities on the East Coast to get from the East Coast to Germany.”

“The one place we’re going to permit in the Northwest, it’s been turned down twice already,” Cohn said in comments at the Institute of International Finance, in which he called the opportunity for exporting liquefied natural gas “enormous.”

While Cohn did not name a specific project, the White House confirmed Thursday that Cohn was referring to the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal, which would be sited in Oregon’s Port of Coos Bay. That’s where Veresen, the Calgary-based company whose subsidiary is proposing the project, wants to construct two massive, 160,000-cubic-meter storage tanks and other facilities that would receive natural gas from a pipeline, compress it into a liquid for transport, and then pipe it out to tanker ships for sale abroad.

It isn’t clear what Cohn meant in saying that “we’re going to permit” the project, because final approval actually falls to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, an independent agency....

Outside of Portlandia, much of Oregon is dying economically. It may be a blue state, but it’s one of those city-dominated states that are by far and away red geographically. This will be received in Oregon far better than the media will portray.

‘’This is amazing! The libs stopped this which would be incredible for one of the most depressed areas in Oregon.”

Cohen is looking like “de man.”

The accusations are that Cohn is a crony capitalist.

Let’s wait for him to start championing a few small business initiatives before going all in on him.

Trust, but verify.

Good move. Supply China and Japan with LNG from Oregon and supply Germany (Nato) with LNG from the east coast and make Europe independent from Russian gas.

People are seldom completely good or completely bad. Cohn actually is a bit of a neocon globalist in my opinion, but so long as that tendency is siloed off and kept from creeping into policy, he can do some good.
