Pipeline into Jackson county sparks questions of oversight, communication

An oil pipeline already under construction and running from Semmes, Ala., to Chevron’s Pascagoula refinery has caused questions from Mississippi officials and the public about communication and oversight of the project.

The pipeline, which is likely to carry base oil used to make products such as engine lubricants, would run about 40 miles from Alabama to Pascagoula.

It would run in two places under the Escatawpa River, as well as under Black Creek and Little Black Creek.
