Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to decommission 24,311 linear feet of a 6-inch pipeline.  The pipeline is filled with 895 bbl. of uninhibited seawater.  Prior to being filled with uninhibited seawater the pipeline was pigged and shortly after flushed and filled removing hydrocarbon buildup from the pipeline.  The pipeline, if left in its state of abandonment on the sea floor, poses no environmental hazards within the Freeport Anchorage Area.

In accordance with the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) 30 CFR 250.1750 pipeline decommissioning requirements, the applicant proposes to:  1. Disconnect from previously serviced platform and subsea tie-in connection; 2. Flush by pigging, and filling with seawater to equalize the line pressure; 3. Plug each end of the pipeline; and 4. Confirm depth of cover at the pipeline ends, and cover endpoints with protective concrete mats.  The BSEE project number is Segment 9434.
