Background

Bradwood Landing LNG Terminal was a proposed LNG terminal in Oregon, United States.[1] The project would have been the first LNG receiving terminal in the US Pacific Northwest. In May of 2010, NorthernStar Natural Gas, the owner of the proposed project, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, ultimately cancelling plans for the Bradwood Landing project. [2]

Opposition

There were many opponents of the project, including the conservation group Columbia Riverkeeper. Opponents celebrated the project's cancellation. Columbia Riverkeeper Executive Director Brett Vandenheuvel told the Oregonian, "It's a huge victory for Oregonians, for family farms, for clean water, for salmon habitat, for fisherman."[3]
