NAME OF APPLICANT: Shell Pipeline Company, LP, c/o: Sheila Mitchell Impact Management, attn.: Ms. Sheila Mitchell, 5711 Milart Street, Houston, Texas 77021.

LOCATION OF WORK: Located on an approximate 9.14-acre site located along and northeast of Texaco Road, in Section 15, 16, 21, and 22, Township 10 South, Range 4 East, near Sorrento, Louisiana, in Ascension Parish, within the Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic
unit (HUC 08070204), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 30.167680 N, Longitude -90.802699 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested a Department of the Army permit to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill to install and maintain an approximate 2,780-linear foot 6-inch butane lateral pipeline. The project is required to allow the transfer of butane from the
Sorrento storage domes to an existing Geismar to Norco 6-inch pipeline. The project will supply Shell’s Norco facilities with butane. Approximately 24,300 cubic yards of native excavated fill material would be temporarily excavated and placed as backfill material during
the pipeline open trench installation methodology. Approximately 565 cubic yards of vegetative material (proposed chipped tree material) is proposed to be placed in jurisdictional areas. Approximately 3.1 acres of jurisdictional forested wetlands (swamp and bottomland
hardwood habitats) would be permanently converted to emergent wetlands. Approximately 1.6 acres of jurisdictional fresh marsh habitat, 0.1 acre of jurisdictional scrub-shrub habitat, and 0.1 acre of jurisdictional wet pasture wetland habitat. The project would also temporarily
impact approximately 3.3 acres of jurisdictional Other Waters of the US as a result of the project. The applicant proposes to utilize best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project.
