The Port of Coos Bay is the largest and deepest port between San Francisco, California and the Columbia River.Coos Bay is located in northern Coos County. Other communities on the bay include North Bend and Charleston. Many of the fishing and pleasure boats that call Coos Bay home are docked in Charleston.
Coos Bay is the proposed site of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal by Jordan Cove Energy Project. The terminal would export liquefied natural gas primarily to overseas market through the proposed 36-inch-diameter (910 mm) Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline which would extend 234 miles from Malin, near Klamath Falls to Jordan Cove on Coos Bay. The terminal and pipeline projects are under regulatory review. Oregon Governor Kulongoski expressed various environmental concerns.
