Inletkeeper comments on proposed Cross Inlet Pipeline 2017
Inletkeeper has long-advocated for the closure of the Drift River Oil Terminal (DROT), for two reasons. First, the siting of the DROT at the base of an active volcano makes it especially risky and ill-equipped to gather, store and transport oil. Second, a state-of-the-art pipeline system to transport oil from the west side to the east side of Cook Inlet can reduce the risks of tanker vessels transporting product. That said, it’s imperative the Cross Inlet pipeline proposed in this project receive the serious state and federal scrutiny needed to assure a 45 year old subsea gas pipeline can be successfully converted to safely transport oil.
