Tipton Applauds Federal Approval of Jordan Cove Project
WASHINGTON—Today, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) certified the construction of the Jordan Cove Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Export Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline project. After spearheading the effort to ensure FERC acted quickly on the project after failing to render a decision in February, Congressman Tipton (CO-03) praised the announcement:
“Approving Jordan Cove in a time of great economic uncertainty restores some faith for many energy workers living in Western Colorado. Providing a cleaner and abundant energy source for our allies in the Pacific will no doubt be an economic driver in our communities for years to come. This was much needed good news for families and businesses who have been more than patient waiting for this approval, and I am glad FERC listened to my calls to get this done.”
Tipton, a champion for all-of-the-above energy resource development, wrote to FERC last month requesting for approval of the project. That letter can be found here. The project still requires final approval from other state and local regulators.
