The nonexclusive Franchise Pipeline Agreement by Plains LPG Services L.P. is comprised of an approximate fourteen mile pipeline route that would include the installation of three new petroleum pipelines: 1) a four inch natural gas condensate line; 2) a six inch propane line; and 3) a six inch butane line. The proposed route begins at the Inergy north Coles Levee Fractionator Facility near Tupman, CA. The pipeline would trend north-north easterly along the Kern Water Bank, and then continue northward across agricultural lands until the pipeline reaches the termination point at the Plains Lone Star facility located near Shafter, CA. The project will allow the direct transfer of products and therefore reduce the need for transport of such products by vehicles. The project will also include the construction of additional appurtenances necessary for operation of the new pipelines. Although the majority of the pipeline will be constructed underground, a portion of the pipeline will be constructed above ground and be placed on sleepers. The pipeline route has been designed to minimize habitat disturbances by locating the proposed pipeline within existing or adjacent to existing pipeline rights-of-way, existing roadways or other areas that have been previously disturbed by recent human activities. As proposed, the pipeline will be constructed within a 50-foot right-of-way (ROW) in areas where conditions permit.
