Main project site: Land use is agricultural dry grazing and transportation corridor (U.S. Highway 101 and SOuthern Pacific R.R.); Comprehensive Plan designation and zoning AG-II 100 Coastal Zone and Transportation Corridor.
The proposed Line 96 Modification Project consists of a new oil transportation pipeline approximately 8.5 miles long beginning at the Venoco Ellwood Onshore Facility (EOF) identified as Assessor Parcel Number 079-210-042 located in the City of Goleta and ending by connecting to the Plains Pipeline L.P. pipeline system located on Assessor Parcel Number 081-230-021 adjacent to Las Flores Canyon. The project also includes the abandonment, decommissioning and potential removal of the existing Line 96 pipeline, located in the City of Goleta. The existing pipeline transports oil from the EOF to the Ellwood Marine Terminal (EMT) where the oil is transferred offshore to a barge for transportation to market. Once the new onshore pipeline is operational, decommissioning and abandonment of the existing Line 96 pipeline and the Ellwood Marine Terminal would occur, resulting in the cessation of marine barging.
