Start Preamble

Take notice that on September 1, 2011, Kenai Pipe Line Company (KPL), Tesoro Alaska Company (Tesoro Alaska), and Tesoro Logistics, 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 two crude oil pipelines, as well as several crude oil and refined petroleum products pipeline spurs that are part of Tesoro Alaska's internal refinery operations, are not subject to the Commission's jurisdiction under the Interstate Commerce Act (ICA).

Tesoro also requests that the Commission determine that a dock and tank storage that Tesoro also uses as part of its internal refinery operation are not subject to the Commission's jurisdiction.

Any person desiring to intervene or to protest in the above proceeding must file in accordance with Rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211 and 385.214) on or before 5 p.m. Eastern time on the specified comment date. It is not necessary to separately intervene again in a subdocket related to a compliance filing if you have previously intervened in the same docket. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding.

In reference to filings initiating a new proceeding, interventions or protests submitted on or before the comment deadline need not be served on persons other than the Applicant.
