NorthernStar Natural Gas wanted to help navigate fuel to its destinations (homes and businesses) on the US West Coast. It was developing liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminals that would re-gasify the fuel from suppliers for consumers using existing pipelines. By cooling and converting it to a liquid form, natural gas could be transported more easily and cheaply across long distances. Its portfolio included one terminal project with a capacity of 1.3 billion cu. ft. per day (Bradwood Landing in Oregon) and one offshore terminal in California. Facing a tough financial environment, in 2010 the company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
