A Bridge to the Future: Jordan Cove Project Benefits
Creation of 6,000+ good-paying construction jobs and ~8,500 spin-off jobs.
Building a safe, clean natural gas pipeline – with an export terminal in Coos County – the Jordan Cove Project will create more than 6,000 good-paying construction jobs at peak construction in addition to an estimated 8,500 jobs in sectors like hospitality, retail, tourism and healthcare. The Project will bring $60 million dollars in new tax revenue for Southern Oregon and the South Coast every year to revitalize our community, and invest in schools and services across Southern Oregon and the South Coast.
The Project will revitalize the Port of Coos Bay, making it a major U.S. West Coast port. Numerous other tangible benefits to the surrounding communities include:
The Project would create over 6,000 jobs at peak construction and more than 200 permanent positions. Additionally, during construction the Project would create over ~8,500 spin off jobs in sectors like hospitality, retail, tourism, and healthcare, including ~1,500 permanent spin-off jobs during operations.
Jordan Cove LNG’s Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor, KBJ, has executed a Project Labor Agreement with the Oregon Building and Construction Trades Council, the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters and the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 701 for construction of the LNG Terminal. This agreement ensures the Project will be built with local, skilled union labor with a long track record of safely completing complex industrial projects on time. Jordan Cove is committed to using union labor for construction of the pipeline and is in discussions with trade unions regarding the timing of construction, available resources and required skill sets.
