Document Description
Venoco, Inc. proposes to replace the existing 46-year-old, 16.5 kilovolt power cable between the Ellwood Onshore Facility (EOF) and Platform Holly as part of repair and maintenance. The new power cable would be sized as an in-kind replacement, with similar electrical power transmission capability to support existing operations and newer technology fiber optics to replace existing wire telecommunications. The replacement cable would follow the general route of the existing cable through existing easements. It would begin at the EOF and be routed underground to a Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) site just west of the EOF fence, then via a HDD-installed conduit under the beach and surf zone to a HDD exit pit on the seafloor. The cable would then be laid on the seafloor to Platform Holly and installed in a new 8-inch diameter "I" tube riser on the Platform.
