Document Description
The project is the renewal of a lease of state land for operation of the Ellwood Marine Terminal (EMT), a crude oil marine loading terminal and storage facility. Crude oil is first stored in two onshore tanks and then pumped into a pipeline for loading into a dedicated barge. The EMT has an average barge loading rate of 4,200 barrels (bbls) per hour with a maximum barge capacity of a total of 56,000 bbls. Typically, a dedicated barge is loaded two to three times per month with 55,000 bbls of crude oil per load. The oil is then transported to refineries in the Port of Los Angeles area. The offshore facilities consist of an irregular six-point mooring system located 2,600 feet from shore, two additional buoys, a 10-inch-diameter marine loading pipeline that extends from the beach to the mooring area, and 240-foot long rubber hose to the offshore end of the pipeline.
