美国能源部长布罗列特(Dan Brouilette)在一份声明中表示，今天向Jordan Cove的发布有助于进一步扩大美国液化天然气在海外的机会，特别是在不断增长的亚洲市场，为我们在世界各地的盟友提供可靠、负担得起和清洁的天然气。
如果Jordan Cove LNG项目获得俄勒冈州的许可，其将成为美国从太平洋海岸向亚洲最大的液化天然气进口国——日本和韩国——出口液化天然气的关键项目。

U.S. Approves Oregon LNG Project That Could Boost Supply To Asia
The U.S. Department of Energy issued a final long-term order to authorize exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from a project in Oregon that they expect will help the U.S. sell gas to the fastest-growing import market, Asia.
The U.S. Department of Energy authorized exports of up to 1.08 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas from the proposed Jordan Cove LNG Terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon, owned by Canada’s Pembina Pipeline Corporation.
“Today’s issuance to Jordan Cove serves to further expand opportunities for U.S. LNG abroad, particularly in the growing markets of Asia, providing reliable, affordable, and cleaner-burning natural gas to our allies around the world,” U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette said in a statement.
Jordan Cove LNG, expected to come The project, however, continues to face opposition, including from citizen organizations, Oregon lawmakers, and the state of Oregon, which has yet to issue vital permits for the project.
Jordan Cove is the latest LNG project to receive authorization from the U.S. Administration as several LNG export projects were approved and started operations over the past few years.
If Jordan Cove LNG obtains Oregon state permits, it could become a key export project for U.S. LNG from the Pacific Coast to the largest LNG importers in the world in Asia—Japan, and South Korea.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved the construction and operation of the Alaska LNG project estimated at US$43 billion, which has been years in the planning but still lacks investor commitments for its completion.
