Document Description
Sentinel Peak Resources (SPR) is requesting approval to install a crude oil truck loading rack and associated infrastructure within the state-designated Lompoc Oil Field in Lompoc, California. The purpose of the project is to transport crude oil production from the Lompoc Oil Field to the Coalinga Station in Coalinga, California, via an average of six, but up to 10 round-trip commercial tanker truck trips per day for up to 50 years, or until a pipeline becomes available, whichever is shorter. Trucking would be able to resume under the above project limits whenever the export pipeline is unavailable. SPR is requesting the project due to the current unavailability of the Phillips 66 Line 300 crude oil export pipeline, which was historically used to export Lompoc Oil Field production to the Phillips 66 Santa Maria Refinery in San Luis Obispo, California until it ceased commercial oil transport in early 2023. The truck loading rack would be constructed on an existing oil production pad within the south-central portion of the oil field. Truck rack components would include a Lease Automatic Custody Transfer (LACT) unit and charge pumps, one truck loading rack, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and volatile organic compound (VOC) removal systems, monitors, and aboveground extension pipelines. Construction is estimated to take 3-6 months. During operations, crude oil would be transported by cargo trucks, the route consisting of: private lease roads to Harris Grade Road, Harris Grade Road to Highway (Hwy) 1, Hwy 1 to Hwy 135, Hwy 135 to Betteravia Road, Betteravia Road to Hwy 101, Hwy 101 to Hwy 46, Hwy 46 to Hwy 41, Hwy 41 to Hwy 33, and Hwy 33 to Coalinga. The approximate trucking distance would be a total of 165 miles.
