Flying the Jordan Cove LNG Pipeline Route

A few weeks ago, I got to join an aerial tour by EcoFlight of the proposed Pacific Connector Gas pipeline crossing of the Pacific Crest Trail and the Rogue River near Shady Cove. If built, the Pacific Connector Gas pipeline would transport fracked gas from Malin, Oregon to the Jordan Cove Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export terminal at Coos Bay.
