Our Pipeline Operations
Sacramento International Airport Pipelines
Wickland Pipelines LLC secured all pipeline rights-of-way, governmental permits, and entitlements necessary to build a 10 mile long common carrier pipeline and 125,000 barrel airport storage facility to supply jet fuel to the Sacramento International Airport. WPL successfully completed construction of the 12" pipeline under budget and ahead of schedule in 2005. Similar to the proposed SNA pipeline, the pipeline delivers 100% of the SMF Airport's jet fuel requirements during weekly deliveries of the center cut of jet fuel from a Kinder Morgan pipeline.
 
San Jose International Airport Pipeline
Similar to the SMP Pipeline, Wickland Pipelines secured all pipeline rights-of-way, governmental permits, and entitlements necessary to build a 2 mile long common carrier pipeline and secured 105,000 barrels of jet fuel storage as part of a new fuel delivery system to the San Jose International Airport. Construction of the 8" pipeline was completed under budget and ahead of schedule in November 2010. WPL operates the pipeline facilities, including two 1,500 bph pumps and a coalescer / separator filter, and delivers 100% of the SJC Airport's jet fuel requirements by pumping typically three days per week.

Operations Control
A key aspect of how our pipelines operate safely is our Operations Control Systems. Wickland's state-of-the-art control systems allow us to monitor our pipelines 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Operations Control Systems monitor everything from the flow rate, to pipeline pressure, to the opening and closing of valves, and are able to instantly response and make appropriate changes to abnormal conditions. The Controller on duty is alerted to changes in the pipeline operations, which allows him to respond quickly should it be required. Data is continuously received from our pipeline stations located along the pipeline system for real time monitoring and reporting.
