Jordan Cove LNG
Jordan Cove LNG will meet the growing global demand for LNG by providing direct access to abundant Canadian and U.S. Rockies natural gas supply sources, primarily through existing pipeline and gas gathering networks. Jordan Cove LNG is ideally located on the west coast of the United States, within the Port of Coos Bay, Oregon. The Jordan Cove LNG terminal will have a Phase I liquefaction design capacity of 6 million tons per annum (mtpa), or approximately 1 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per day.
LNG Liquefaction & Terminal
Jordan Cove LNG’s broad access to diverse gas supplies and advanced regulatory state provides our project with a distinct competitive advantage. The Port of Coos Bay offers a low cost shipping benefit for exporting LNG from North America to energy consuming markets throughout Asia Pacific, South America, Hawaii and Alaska.
We are developing the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline, a proposed 232 mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline, designed to fully serve Jordan Cove LNG’s gas supply requirements, as well as new gas supply requirements in Oregon.
By enabling further development of the natural gas industry in North America and abroad, we are promoting the use of natural gas, the cleanest burning fossil fuel, as an alternative to oil or coal.
Marketing / Commercial Contacts
LNG demand in Asia Pacific markets is expected to exceed 300 mtpa by 2025. To meet this increasing demand, these markets will continue to look to North America for supply diversity, transparent price mechanisms, and access to proven reserves. We believe that Jordan Cove LNG is the best LNG liquefaction terminal on the west coast of North America:
- the shortest and lowest cost shipping distance to most Asia-Pacific and South American markets;
- the opportunity to secure a long-term contractual usage under a tolling business model; and
- diverse access to long-term reliable natural gas supplies.
Veresen is pursuing strategic partnerships with potential off-take markets and welcomes industry enquiries.

Did You Know?
Natural gas can be liquefied by being cooled to minus 162 Celsius, the point at which gas condenses to a liquid. Through this liquefaction process, the volume of natural gas is reduced by more than 600 times, making it cost-efficient to transport over long distances and safe to store.
Upon arriving at an LNG terminal by ship, the LNG is regasified in a highly controlled environment by being passed through vaporizers that slowly warm the LNG to return it to a gaseous state.
