Stop the GTN Pipeline Expansion
ACT Today! HELP US STOP THIS EXPANSION. TELL FERC (FEDERAL ENERGY REGULATORY COMMISSION) TO STOP THE GTN EXPANSION.
On November 18th, 2022 FERC released an inadequate Final Environmental Impact statement for GTN XPress. Commissioners will have 90 days to review those findings and comments from community members and stakeholders before making their final decision on February 16th, 2023.
ACT Today! Time is Short
We will be submitting a letter to FERC asking them to deny the GTN pipeline expansion. Sign your name to the right to show support and make your voice heard!
"I am writing to oppose TC Energy’s GTN XPress pipeline capacity expansion project currently under review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). I am asking FERC to address concerns raised by Oregon, Washington, California, and Tribes—and to reject the GTN Xpress proposal.
Northwest residents have opposed and defeated fracked gas pipelines and export proposals for decades. The GTN XPress project is simply the latest proposed expansion of harmful fossil fuel infrastructure. Our communities are already feeling the impacts of climate change with record wildfires, droughts, coastal erosion, and flooding; this project would increase the emissions contributing to these conditions.
Pipeline and compressor station expansions create increased health risks for nearby communities, which are often rural, low-income, and communities of color. Not only is this infrastructure prone to accidents like leaks, fires, and explosions, but communities near the compressor stations would experience increased exposure to cancer-causing pollutants if FERC approves GTN XPress.
TC Energy has failed to demonstrate that the Northwest needs or wants the GTN Xpress proposal. Communities in the Northwest fought hard to pass climate commitments at the state level. In August, Attorneys General of Oregon, Washington, and California told FERC they oppose GTN XPress because it’s out of line with state and federal climate goals. Oregon senators Wyden and Merkley have also voiced their opposition and concerns. Thus far, FERC is ignoring the valid concerns raised by our region.
FERC has the information it needs to conclude that the project is not in the public interest. Please heed the concerns of people throughout the Northwest who are urging FERC to protect our health, our climate and communities close to the GTN pipeline.
