COUNCIL ACTION:  Approved on 12/4/2018 

DATE: 12/4/2018 REFERENCE NO.: **L-16162 LOG NAME: 21EXPLORER PIPELINE
CODE: L TYPE: CONSENT PUBLIC HEARING: NO
SUBJECT:  

Authorize Execution of a Public Right of Way Use Agreement with Explorer Pipeline Company for a License Fee in the Amount of $51,092.00 and Grant License to Continue Operations of an Existing Subsurface Liquid Petroleum Products Pipeline Across Beach Street, Long Avenue, Sylvania Avenue, Wautauga Road, Cold Springs Road and Chesser Boyer Road (COUNCIL DISTRICTS 2, 4 and 9)


RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council authorize the execution of a public right-of-way use Agreement with Explorer Pipeline Company for a license fee in the amount of $51,092.00 and grant license to continue operations of an existing subsurface liquid petroleum products pipeline across Beach Street, Long Avenue, Sylvania Avenue, Watauga Road, Cold Springs Road and Chesser Boyer Road.

 
DISCUSSION:

On November 9, 1993, the Fort Worth City Council adopted City Ordinance No. 11445, granting to Explorer Pipeline Company a license to use certain City streets and other public rights-of-way for the construction, maintenance and use of a liquid petroleum products pipeline. On September 16, 1997, (M&C G-11994) the Fort Worth City Council amended the ordinance to include an additional City street under Ordinance No. 13156.

The term of the license was for twenty-five (25) years and expires on December 9, 2018.

Explorer Pipeline Company has requested to enter into a new public right-of-way use Agreement for operation of the existing pipeline which includes 964 linear feet of pipeline within the specific rights-of-ways for a period of 25 years. Explorer will pay the City a one-time license fee of $51,092.00, and has agreed to all terms of the City's standard license agreement. Because Explorer Pipeline Company is not a public utility, as that term is defined in Chapter 28 of the City Code, a franchise governing its operations is not required by the City Charter.

The pipeline alignment is located in COUNCIL DISTRICTS 2, 4 and 9.

 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:

The Director of Finance certifies that the Property Management Department is responsible for collection and deposit of funds due to the City under this agreement.
