Pacific Energy Resources Ltd.: Successful Inspection of Pipeline to
the Port Long Beach
LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - November 27, 2007) - Pacific
Energy Resources Ltd. (TSX: PFE) (The "Corporation") and its wholly
owned subsidiary San Pedro Bay Pipeline Company (SBPLC) wishes to
announce its successful inspection of the San Pedro Bay Pipeline
(SPBPL). The SPBPL, a 16 inch, 17.3 mile pipeline carries crude oil
produced on Pacific's Beta Unit Platforms in Federal waters, 9 miles
offshore Long Beach to shore at Beta Pump Station in the Port of Long
Beach. This successful inspection was a requirement by Department of
Transportation, Minerals Management Service and California State
Lands Commission who have oversight on the pipeline.
The inspection contractor GE Pipeline Solutions PII utilized their
UltraScan WM inspection tool to inspect the 16-inch pipeline. GE as
the contractor for Pacific Energy reviewed the data and produced a
final report submitted to the Governing Agencies for their review.
The final report indicates that the SPBPL meets and exceeds
requirements set in its Pipeline Integrity Management Plan as per 49
CFR Part 195.452.
This successful effort also removes certain barriers that exist with
the company's loan agreements that restricted significant capital
spending in the Beta Oil field until the long-term viability of the
sales line was established.
"This is a significant event and marks the beginning of the formal
effort to redevelop the Beta Oil field and return Platform Eureka to
production" said Darren Katic the company's president.
