Kinder Morgan shall be the sole owner of the pipeline commonly referred to as the Cochin Pipeline, located to the westnorthwest of the EDS Pipeline. Each party shall be solely responsible for the maintenance of their pipeline and any liability associated with that pipeline. All easements, licenses, leases and permits associated with the Pipelines, except for any Presidential permits issued by the Department, and all real property formerly owned in fee by Dome Pipeline, shall be owned jointly by Dome Petroleum and Kinder Morgan as tenants in common. If approved by the Department, separate individual Presidential permits will be issued to Dome Petroleum and Kinder Morgan for their respective pipelines. According to the application, Dome Petroleum and Kinder Morgan have, in written correspondence to the Department of State, committed to abide by the relevant terms and conditions of the permit previously issued by the Department to Dome Pipeline. Further, Dome Petroleum and Kinder Morgan have indicated in that correspondence that there have been no substantial changes in the operations of the EDS and Cochin pipelines from those originally authorized by the Department and further stated that the future operation of the pipelines will remain essentially unchanged from that previously permitted. Therefore, in accordance with 22 CFR 161.7(b)(3) and the Department’s Procedures for Issuance of a Presidential Permit Where There Has Been a Transfer of the Underlying Facility, Bridge or Border Crossing for Land Transportation (70 FR 30990, May 31, 2005), the Department of State does not intend to conduct an environmental review of the application unless information is brought to its attention that the transfer potentially would have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment.
