Pipeline would run from Klamath County to the coast



Companies that want to build a natural gas pipeline across southwestern Oregon have asked for approval from the federal government. The pipeline would help export gas from the U.S. to Asia.

The proposed line would send Wyoming natural gas from a transmission hub in southern Klamath County to a proposed terminal at Coos Bay. The pipeline has been approved once before, but then developers changed from importing gas to exporting it and the license was withdrawn by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The Medford Mail Tribune reported the developers will hold meetings the week of June 25 in Medford, Roseburg, Klamath Falls and Coos Bay.
