Phillips 66 proposes to replace approximately 36.5 miles of an existing 8-inch gasoline / diesel pipeline with approximately 43.7 miles of new 10-inch pipeline that extends from Guthrie, OK to the Phillips 66 Oklahoma City Terminal. This proposed pipeline will cross under the North Canadian River Channel, which was federally constructed and inspected under the ICW Levee Safety Program and is eligible and enrolled in the P.L. 84-99 Rehabilitation Program. The new 10-inch pipeline will be installed utilizing the Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) installation technique and the existing pipeline will be abandoned in place by grouting the pipe and capping it at either end beyond the extents of the levee under the landside levee toes on both the north and south side of the channel. The maps below show the location of the proposed pipeline and the North Canadian River Channel. The entry and exit locations of the HDD are also shown in Attachment 2.
