Start Preamble February 22, 2002.

Take notice that on February 21, 2002, Big West Oil LLC (Big West), Chevron Products Company (Chevron), and Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company (Tesoro) tendered for filing a Complaint against Alberta Energy Company, Ltd. (AEC), Express Pipeline LLC (Express) and Platte Pipe Line Company (Platte).

Big West, Chevron and Tesoro state in their Complaint that in order to transport crude oil and synthetic crude oil to their refineries in Salt Lake City, Utah, they must utilize a “pump over” facility that Platt Pipe Line Company operates in Casper, Wyoming. That pump over facility is used to transfer crude petroleum and synthetic crude oil in Casper, Wyoming from the Express pipeline to a pipeline operated by Frontier Pipeline Company. Big West, Chevron, and Tesoro allege that the fees being charged for the use of the Platte pump over facility are unjust and unreasonable and unduly discriminatory and unduly preferential and, therefore, in violation of the Interstate Commerce Act. Big West, Start Printed Page 9260Chevron and Tesoro further maintain that AEC and Express are directly responsible for the pump over fees and that these fees improperly inure to their benefit.
