Tracking fossil fuel export proposals in the Northwest, we see no fewer than a dozen planned for the near future. From a new coal terminal in Fort McKenzie, AK to liquid natural gas to be shipped out of Coos Bay, OR, industries are pushing hard in 2013 to export more fossil fuel than ever. Rising Tide and our allies are pushing back.
- A liquified natural gas (LNG) terminal in Warrenton, OR with over 200 miles of new, high-pressure LNG pipeline in Oregon and Washington. Much of the pipeline would be forced through private land by corporate and government enforcement of eminent domain.
- Three remaining coal export terminals including the Ports of: Longview, WA (the Millennium Bulk Terminal up to 44 million tons/year proposed); Morrow (Boardman, OR; 8.8m tons/yr); and Cherry Point (Bellingham, WA; up to 48m tons/yr).
- In April, 2013, the Tesaro and Savage Corporations announced plans to develop and operate a new 120,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) crude-by-rail unloading and marine loading facility at the Port of Vancouver, Wash.
