Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to decommission Pipeline Segment Number (PSN) 3489 in place.  PSN 3489 is a 16-inch steel pipeline previously used to transport natural gas.  This pipeline segment would be cut at the POB and POE, flushed, filled with native seawater, and capped.  In locations in which pipeline exposures are found, the pipeline would be lowered to obtain adequate depth of cover.

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.
