Park City • Tesoro Refining & Marketing, bowing to feedback from Summit County officials and stakeholders, is exploring the possibility of altering the route of the proposed Uinta Express Pipeline.

Michael Gebhardt, vice president of strategy and business development for Tesoro, said Thursday in a phone interview with The Park Record that the oil company is investigating an alternate route that would be well east of the originally proposed pipeline route.

The variation would place the pipeline far east of the Rockport Reservoir and through a less densely populated area of the county.

"That is one attraction," Gebhardt said.
