(Corvallis, OR) -- Research from Oregon State University finds a majority of Oregonians perceive a greater risk than benefit from natural gas exports. Six natural gas export facilities have been proposed along the Oregon Coast. The most recent, in Coos Bay, was dropped last year. An OSU study found 53-percent of Oregonians feel natural gas is a greater risk to the environment than the financial benefit. 27-percent of people surveyed thought the economic benefit of exporting natural gas to other countries would be worth it.
