Document Description
The Smart Energy Transport System (the "Project") is a fuel delivery system that would include an approximate 24-mile pipeline of 12 to 16 inches in diameter as well as ancillary pumping and receiving systems. The proposed pipeline would originate at the Vopak Inland Terminal in the Wilmington area of the City of Los Angeles, travel north through the City of Carson, unincorported Los Angeles County, City of Compton, additional areas within City of Los Angeles, City of Gardena and City of Hawthorne, arriving at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The proposed ancillary facilities would include a new pump station at the Vopak Inland Terminal, a new delivery connection to the Watson Pump Station in Carson, and a new receiving system at LAX. The Project is proposed to proceed in two phases. Phase 1 consists of the portion of the alignment between the Vopak Terminal and the Watson Pump Station, and ancillary equipment at Vopak and Watson. Construction of Phase 1 of the Project is anticipated to begin in September 2008 and end in February 2009. Phase 2 consists of the portion of the alignment between the Watson Pump Station and LAX. Construction of Phase 2 is expected to begin as early as April 2012.
