Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to decommission the pipe in place for 26.27 miles of a 16” gas pipeline, buried to a depth of 10 feet below the natural bottom.  The pipeline was previously authorized via Department of the Army Permit 14628.  An application was also submitted by the applicant to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) on 13 June 2017.  The decommissioning process is a two-step procedure whereby the first phase includes the operational aspects of cleaning and sealing the pipeline in accordance with decommissioning requirements under 30 CFR 250.1750.  The second phase of the decommissioning procedure is retention in place of the existing pipe. 

 There will be no dredged or fill materials involved in these operations.  No structures will be installed.  Hydrocarbons were transported through the pipeline until August 2000, at which time the pipeline was disconnected at the subsea tie-in point in High Island Block 48.  The first phase of in-place operations to clean and decommission was completed on 24 August 2004.
