Santa Fe Pacific Pipeline Partners LP said several major oil refiners have filed a complaint alleging that Santa Fe's pipeline rates in California are too high. The complaint, filed by Arco Products Co., Mobil Oil and Texaco Refining & Marketing Inc. asks the state Public Utilities Commission to reduce Santa Fe's rates for transporting refined petroleum products through its pipeline system in the state. If approved, a rate reduction would adversely affect the company's future revenue.
