A gas company in Oregon, known as Oregon LNG, has been attempting to get permission for the construction of a terminal and a pipeline for natural gas. It would be constructed out on the Skipanon Peninsula, which is located in Warrenton. This location would put the facility right near the end of the Columbia River.
Part of the company's goal is then to ship the liquid natural gas along the river. This has been a source of contention, as some groups in the area -- such as Columbia Riverkeeper -- are opposed to this action.
