SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District 
(Regulatory Division), in coordination with the Port of Long Angeles, 
has completed a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/
Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (SEIS/SEIR) for the Pacific L.A.

requires authorization pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act 
and Section 10 of the River and Harbor Act to build a new crude oil 
marine terminal at Berth 408 on Pier 400 including: construction of a 
new marine terminal to receive crude oil from marine vessels and 
transfer the oil to tank farms facilities via a new 42-inch-diameter, 
high-volume pipeline; construction of two tank farms, Tank Farm Site 1 
located on Pier 400 and Tank Farm Site 2 located on Pier 300 at Seaside 
Avenue/Terminal Way; construction of new pipelines to connect the new 
tank farm facilities to existing pipeline facilities, with the new tank 
farm facilities connected to the existing ExxonMobil Southwest Terminal 
on Terminal Island, the existing Ultramar/Valero Refinery on Anaheim 
Street near the Terminal Island Freeway, and to Plains All American 
pipeline systems near Henry Ford Avenue and Alameda Street via new and 
existing 36-inch, 24-inch, and 16-inch pipelines, and with all new 
pipelines installed belowground, with the exception of the water 
crossings at the Pier 400 causeway bridge and at the Valero utility/
pipe bridge that crosses the Dominguez Channel west of the Ultramar/
Valero Refinery. The new tank farm facilities would provide a total of 
4.0 million barrels (bbl) of capacity, primarily receiving crude oil, 
partially refined crude oil, and occasional deliveries of Marine Gas 
Oil (MGO).
