Oregon LNG has sued the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for access to the land for a proposed Liquefaction Plant

The proposed Oregon Liquefied Natural Gas terminal in Warrenton near the mouth of Columbia River is faced with another roadblock and may not have access to the land where it proposes to build its terminal.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has an easement over the terminal site for disposing dredge spoils. Oregon LNG has sued the Army Corps for access to the land, according to court filings discovered by Columbia Riverkeeper, an advocacy group opposed to the project.

The lawsuit is pending, and the resolution may decide the fate of the LNG export terminal, Columbia Riverkeeper Conservation Director Dan Serres said.
