FOUR CORNERS PIPE LINE CO. DECIDES AGAINST REVERSING LINE 90; WILL OPTIMIZE LINE 63 TO HANDLE OCS CRUDE OIL

 LONG BEACH, Calif., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Four Corners Pipe Line Co. (FCPL) announced today that it has entered into a long-term contract to continue shipping Alaskan North Slope crude oil from Long Beach via its Line 90 pipeline.
 The decision ends speculation that Line 90, a major west-to-east pipeline system, may be reversed to transport offshore Santa Barbara crude oil into the Los Angeles basin.
 FCPL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Los Angeles-based ARCO, also announced that it will pursue modifications to its Line 63 to optimize the system's capability to handle blended Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) crude oil.
 Line 63 presently ships San Joaquin Valley light crudes and blended OCS from Kern County into the Los Angeles basin.
 Explaining the decision, FCPL President Gerald D. Secundy said: "We feel that an optimized Line 63 will have the ability to handle most, if not all, of the OCS crude oil demand in the Los Angeles basin. We do not believe there is sufficient demand to support reversal of Line 90, much less the construction of a major new crude oil pipeline into the Los Angeles basin."
