As of January 1, 2018, the US has only one line 5 (L5) pipeline company.
Line 5 is the longest existing pipeline in the country and is the main pipeline to carry Bakken oil from North Dakota’s Bakken shale deposits to refineries on the Gulf Coast.
The company is owned by the Canadian company Enbridge, and is expected to be the first pipeline built in the United States since the 2008 construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
Line 3 (Pacific Gas and Electric) operates the L3 line in California and is owned and operated by Enbridge.
In January 2018, it was ordered to pay $1.2 billion in penalties by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
In March 2018, Enbridge was ordered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit to pay a total of $6.8 billion in fines.
In June 2018, a federal judge in California ordered the company to pay nearly $3 billion in damages to California consumers for failing to adequately disclose the risks of the company’s L3 pipeline.
Enbridge also pleaded guilty to a federal misdemeanor in the case.
Line 2 (American Electric Power) is owned in part by Southern California Edison.
It is one of the oldest, most reliable, and largest utility-owned electric companies in the U, with a fleet of more than 30,000 electric and natural gas-fired generating units.
It was also one of three major electric utilities to install a new L5 line in the Los Angeles area in 2017.
The utility is owned jointly by California Public Utility Commission (CPC) and the City of Los Angeles.
In 2018, Southern California Public Power (SCP) agreed to pay approximately $1 billion to California customers to cover the cost of repairs and replacement of a portion of the utility’s lines.
Line 1 (American Gas Pipeline) was founded in 1902 and operates the largest natural gas pipeline system in the world.
The pipeline carries natural gas from North America to California and Europe.
Line 4 (Pecos National Gas) is one the most heavily used pipelines in the US and is used by approximately 1.8 million customers in the San Francisco Bay Area and in San Diego County, California.
It operates under the California Power Authority.
In 2016, it agreed to a $5.9 billion settlement with California consumers over a pipeline leak that exposed the pipes to the air for three days in March.
The pipe ruptured and caused a massive fire and explosion in California, resulting in over $1 million in damages and costs for the affected area.
Line 7 (Pacific Energy Pipeline) is the second-largest natural gas line in North America.
It transports natural gas to the Los Altos, California, area.
The line carries natural oil from the Permian Basin to the California coast.
In October 2018, California voters approved Proposition C, which requires a 1-cent increase in sales taxes to fund repairs to the pipeline.
California voters also approved Proposition D in 2018, which also requires a one-cent hike in sales tax to fund pipeline repairs.
In 2017, the state passed Proposition H, which provides a tax break to small businesses and businesses that produce less than $500,000 in annual revenue.
The tax breaks will be phased in over three years, beginning in 2019.
California residents can check out the details of the tax breaks here.
Line 6 (Southern California Gas and Lighting) is an electric utility owned by Southern Cal Edison and is operated by the state of California.
The electric utility has a fleet that is more than 14,000 MW and produces more than 4.7 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity.
Line 15 (BNSF Railway) is a rail transportation company that operates in a wide variety of industries, including oil and gas, shipping, coal, and electricity generation.
Line 8 (US Gas) operates under a number of different corporate entities, including the Southern California Energy Corporation (SCECC), and is a subsidiary of the US Energy Information Administration.
In 2019, it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, which will provide the company with a $1-billion federal relief.
In 2021, it paid $1,500,001 in back taxes to California taxpayers.
In December 2018, US Gas received approval from the California Department of Finance for $1 per $100 of sales to cover its back taxes.
The amount is the largest payment of back taxes ever made in California.
In March 2019, the federal government agreed to take $5,000,000 from US Gas to cover their back taxes, which is more money than they paid in back tax refunds in the last three years.
The federal government also agreed to provide US Gas with $1 for every $100 in back-tax refunds it received in the past three years and $1 to $1 on the sale of every gas station and store in the state. Line 9
