Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for a Proposed Liquid Petroleum Products Pipeline From Woods Cross, UT, to Northeast Las Vegas, NV
Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 4332, the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will be directing the preparation of an EIS and conducting public scoping meetings for the proposed construction of a 12'' liquid petroleum products pipeline. UNEV, LLC was established by Holly Corporation to construct and operate the pipeline. The proposed route for the UNEV Pipeline is approximately 400 miles in length and would, except for the northernmost portion of the route, generally follow the existing Kern River pipeline corridor. The pipeline inlet would be located near Holly Corporation's Woods Cross, Utah, refinery, which announced last year its intent to upgrade its crude oil processing capabilities, enabling the refinery to process high value, low priced black wax crude oil and heavy Canadian crude oils. The outlet terminals for the proposed pipeline would be located northwest of Cedar City, Utah, and northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to the inlet pumping station, one additional pumping station is proposed with pressure reduction stations located at the terminals. The corridor contains two Kern River Pipeline Company natural gas pipelines, the newest of which was constructed in 2003. The Kern River Pipeline Environmental Impact Statement was completed in 2002. In Utah the proposed UNEV Pipeline would originate in Davis County and cross Salt Lake, Tooele, Juab, Millard, Beaver, Iron, and Washington Counties. In Nevada the pipeline would cross Lincoln County and terminate in Clark County. A map of the proposed project is available for viewing at http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/prog/more/landsand realty/unevpipelineeis.html and the Utah and Nevada State Offices. The UNEV Pipeline project as proposed would function as a ``common carrier'' pipeline. In general terms, common carrier is an entity that transports goods or products and offers its transportation services to others. This means that the UNEV Pipeline would provide an alternative means of transportation from other modes, i.e., truck or rail, etc., for refined products from other refineries in the area as well as Holly's refinery.
