Venoco has asked the city of Goleta for emergency authority to move two truckloads per day of oil from its Ellwood facility to Santa Maria for the next 17 days.

Venoco said it was making the request so that lines and other facilities could be cleared in order to complete mandatory inspections.

Venoco said it would file for permits with the California Coastal Commission shortly.

In a letter, California State Lands Commission Executive Officer Jennifer Lucchesi said she supported the temporary permit.

Such a permit would “reduce the risk and magnitude” of any spill that took place while the inspections were being completed.

Venoco, which is privately held, operates several offshore platforms and the Ellwood facility is located onshore within the Goleta city limits.
