Concerns over coal dust have led to recent backlash against the terminals at Port Westward, including demands for further study from Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber and a move to by potential neighbor Portland General Electric to block one of the projects.
Kinder Morgan’s terminal is one of two proposed at Port Westward and is very different from another proposed by Ambre Energy.
