Document Description
The Shell Carson Facility Ethanol (E10) project will occur at the Shell Oil Products US (Shell) Carson Distribution Facility. The purpose of the proposed project is to increase the facility's capacity to deliver denatured ethanol by tanker trucks to the southern California market. The increase in denatured ethanol delivery capacity is in response to an increase in the amount of ethanol required to be blended into gasoline to comply with the 2007 amendments to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Phase 3 Reformulated Gasoline (RFG) requirements. The proposed project includes the following changes to the Carson Distribution Facility: 1) increase the ethanol throughput at an existing two lane tanker truck loading rack; 2) convert up to four existing storage tanks from gasoline to ethanol service; 3) install one new ethanol tanker truck loading lane and associated ethanol loading rack; 4) expand the existing ethanol loading rack operations building; and 5) install one new gasoline storage tank to replace gasoline capacity that will be transferred to ethanol service.
