Plains Mobile Pipeline

The Alabama Public Service Commission has approved an application by Plains Mobile Pipeline for a 2.2-mile oil pipeline in Mobile County.

The commission voted unanimously Tuesday for a certificate of industrial development.

The commission's chief administrative law judge, John Garner, said the commissioners have limited authority because the project is part of an interstate pipeline, and the commissioners' only determination is whether the $14.4 million project will further industrial development. The commissioners agreed it will.
