Start Preamble

On February 8, 2011, Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company (TRMC) and Tesoro Logistics Operations, LLC (TLO) (collectively, Tesoro) filed a Request for Jurisdictional Determination, or in the Alternative Temporary Waiver of Tariff Filing and Reporting Requirements. Tesoro requests that the Commission determine that certain pipeline spurs that are part of TRMC's internal refinery operations are not subject to the Commission's jurisdiction under the ICA. In the alternative, Tesoro requests that the Commission grant a temporary waiver of the tariff filing and reporting requirements of sections 6 and 20 of the Interstate Commerce Act for these facilities. Tesoro states that these pipeline spurs are presently owned by TRMC, but are intended for transfer to its affiliate, TLO. Tesoro states that the pipeline spurs are involved in an arrangement for the formation of a Master Limited Partnership (MLP) and the transfer of assets to that MLP.
