The Regulatory Commission of Alaska has scheduled a public input hearing on applications filed by Harvest Alaska and BP Pipelines (Alaska) for transfer of pipeline assets. These transfers are part of the larger sale to Hilcorp (Harvest in a Hilcorp subsidiary) of BPs Alaska assets.

The hearing will be from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the East Hearing Room at RCAs Anchorage offices.

The commission said an order scheduling the public input hearing and providing additional information regarding the proceedings would be issued before the hearing.

The commission said in its Jan. 17 notice of public hearing that it has received numerous comments, both in support of transfer of the BP Pipelines assets to Harvest and expressing concerns with the transfer.

RCA received comments calling for public hearings on the transfers, and responses from the applicants arguing that public hearings were not required (see story in Dec. 29 issue of Petroleum News).

At issue before RCA are requests for approval of the transfer of an indirect 32% interest in PTE Pipeline; an indirect 50% interest in Milne Point Pipeline; and a transfer of Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity No. 311 which authorizes BP Pipelines to own and operate a 48.441% share of the Trans Alaska Pipeline System pipeline and a 47.5881% share of Valdez Marine Terminal tankage assets.
