Take notice that on April 26, 2002, Big West Oil LLC (Big West), Chevron Products Company (Chevron), Sinclair Oil Corporation (Sinclair) and Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company (Tesoro) tendered for filing a Complaint against Express Pipeline LLC (Express). Big West, Chevron, Sinclair and Tesoro state in their Complaint that their refineries use substantial quantities of crude oil and synthetic crude oil (syncrude) that have been transported from Canada on the Express pipeline system. Big West, Chevron, Sinclair and Tesoro allege that the rates Express is charging for pipeline transportation service from the US/Canadian Border to Casper, Wyoming are unjust and unreasonable and, therefore, in violation of the Interstate Commerce Act. Big West, Chevron, Sinclair and Tesoro further maintain that Express has violated and is continuing to violate the Interstate Commerce Act by improperly shifting costs to its shippers for the transfer of crude petroleum from the Express pipeline to a pipeline operated by Frontier Pipeline Company.
