A collection of local governments, private groups and individuals has filed  for the right to appeal in the application process in NorthernStar Energy’s plans to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal at Bradwood Landing, about 30 miles upriver from Astoria. The controversial project calls for a 36-mile-long pipeline that would transport natural gas from Bradwood Landing to Cowlitz County, Wash., north of Kelso, beginning in 2009. NorthernStar is the first company to file for formal approval for such a project in Oregon. Four other sites — three along the Columbia River and one in Coos Bay — have also been proposed. The LNG projects have generated controversy over what opponents say are the terminal’s environmental and safety risks. Those who have filed for intervenor status include the cities of Astoria and Warrenton, the Port of Astoria, Clatsop County in Oregon and Cowlitz and Wahkiakum counties in Washington, and private groups such as Columbia Riverkeeper and the Columbia River Fishermen’s Protective Union. The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is expected to rule on the LNG proposal by next spring.
