The bulk commodities giant Kinder Morgan has announced it won't pursue a coal export terminal it hoped to build at Port Westward in Columbia County.

"Kinder Morgan’s terminal would have exported up to 30 million tons of Wyoming and Montana coal a year to Asia. The company projected its investment at $150 million to $200 million with 80 permanent jobs at the terminal," The Oregonian's Scott Learn reports.

Now that's not going to happen.
