November 13, 2015 - Statement on Amended Corrective Action Order
On November 13, Plains received an amended Corrective Action Order (CAO) from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) calling for the purge and shutdown of Plains’ Line 903 between Gaviota and Pentland through Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Kern Counties in California, which has been inactive since earlier this year. While we do not agree with several of PHMSA’s additional findings, Plains personnel have already engaged with PHMSA in planning the purge of Line 903 between Gaviota and Pentland. As called for in the CAO, Plains will complete the activities in coordination with and under oversight from PHMSA as quickly and safely as possible.
