Unocal at Work on Pipeline: Unocal will begin work immediately on a 10.5-mile pipeline to carry crude oil from offshore wells to the company's Santa Maria, Calif., refinery. The announcement drew a positive reaction from at least one activist group opposed to offshore oil development in the Santa Barbara Channel. Henry Feniger, a leader of Get Oil Out, said activists oppose oil transportation via tankers because of the possibility of oil spills in the ocean.
