The Port of Astoria's land-lease deal to Oregon LNG in Warrenton has been criticized as an unprofitable mistake, but new findings are adding to the scrutiny.

The Port leases 92 acres on the Skipanon Peninsula from Oregon Department of State Lands for $38,400 and subleases it to Oregon LNG for the same amount.

Now, documents recently secured through a public record request are adding a new source of controversy to the dubious land deal and bringing the state's role in the approval process into question.

The whole LNG scheme is a disaster. There is a much better cheaper, safer and more environmentally friendlier way to get more gas into the state and at a much lower cost per therm. It would only require building 26 miles of new pipeline in Southeastern Oregon to tie two big pipelines together. This would provide domestic gas at a much lower rate to be piped in from the Rocky Mountain States.
