STATE OF CALIFORNIA,

No. C 17-03786 WHA
VALERO ENERGY CORPORATION,
VALERO ENERGY PARTNERS LP, and
PLAINS ALL AMERICAN PIPELINE, L.P.,
ORDER RE THIRD-PARTY
OBJECTIONS TO UNSEALING
Third party Kinder Morgan, Inc. objects to the unsealing of portions of the August 23
order regarding preliminary injunction on the grounds that unsealing the volumes of gasoline
and other light petroleum products transported on Kinder-Morgan-owned gathering lines in the
Bay Area “would give Kinder Morgan’s direct competitors unchecked access to the very
information on which Kinder Morgan’s success is based” (Dkt. No. 85 at 1, 4).
By THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 AT NOON, Kinder Morgan shall submit a notice
specifying by name the competitors it claims will benefit from disclosure of its gathering line
capacities in the Bay Area, and how, in particular, this disclosure will harm Kinder Morgan.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
September 5, 2017.
