KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Federal regulators say they will issue an environmental review this February on the proposed pipeline across southwestern Oregon to carry natural gas from Wyoming to the Port of Coos Bay for export to Asia.

The Herald and News (https://bit.ly/1sYZqCN ) reports that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has set Feb. 27, 2015, as the date for the final environmental impact statement for the Jordan Cove Liquefaction and Pacific Connector pipeline projects.

Conservation groups have been fighting the pipeline proposal, arguing it will amount to a continuous clearcut that threatens forests, salmon, water quality and wildlife.

The route passes through Klamath, Jackson, Douglas and Coos counties.
