Calnev Pipe Line, LLC (Calnev), operating partnership for Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, LP, proposes to add an additional refined petroleum products pipeline in California and Nevada, in order to expand the capacity of the Calnev Pipeline System. The Calnev Pipeline Expansion Project (hereafter, the Proposed Project) would involve the construction, operation, and maintenance of a new 16-inch-diameter pipeline and ancillary facilities from an existing facility in Colton, California to an existing facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. The proposed pipeline would parallel two existing system pipelines for most of the route.
The new pipeline would extend approximately 233 miles from the existing North Colton Terminal in Colton, San Bernardino County, California to the Bracken Junction near the McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada. In addition to the new pipeline, the Proposed Project would include a new pump station and ancillary facilities near Baker, California; a new 3-mile lateral from the Bracken Junction to McCarran International Airport; and new or modified connections to new or modified laterals, valves, and ancillary modifications. The pipeline crosses lands primarily under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management. In addition, the proposed pipeline would cross lands under the jurisdiction of the United States Forest Service, the United States Navy, Marine Corps Logistics Base, the Counties of San Bernardino, California and Clark, Nevada, and various cities along the Interstate 15 corridor from Colton, California to Las Vegas, Nevada.
