The Project would initiate the phased restart of the existing ExxonMobil Santa Ynez Unit (SYU) facilities by trucking limited crude oil production to receiver sites in Santa Maria and Maricopa, as a temporary solution to transport crude oil to a refinery destination until a pipeline alternative becomes available. Trucking would occur seven days per week, 24-hours per day, with no more than 70 trucks leaving the Las Flores Canyon (LFC) facility within a 24-hours period to one or both of the two receiver sites. The project would include minor modifications to the LFC facilities including the installation of four Lease Automatic Custody Transfer Units, associated piping, electrical and communication connections, pipe and equipment supports, truck loading racks, operator shelter, paving of selected areas, and minor containment and drainage grading.
