Ultramar files Saint Laurent pipeline EIS

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 25 -- Ultramar Ltd., Montreal, has filed an environmental impact statement (EIS) with Canadian regulatory agencies as it seeks authorization to construct, operate, and maintain the 245 km Saint Laurent oil pipeline in Quebec.

The 16-in. line will deliver oil products from the company's 215,000 b/d St. Romuald refinery at Lévis, near Quebec City, to the Montreal East distribution center.

Ultramar, a Valero Energy Corp. subsidiary, has held meetings with more than 100 groups or other affected parties since filing notice of the project in February 2005.

Groupe Conseil UDA Inc., St-Charles-Sur-Richelieu, Que., conducted the EIS, which will be reviewed by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency; the Quebec Sustainable Development, Environment, and Parks Ministry; and other ministries and organizations. Following approval, public hearings will be scheduled, Ultramar said.
