(Shell) within Subzone 61I at the Shell petrochemical complex in Yabucoa, VerDate jul<14>2003 16:34 Feb 25, 2005 Jkt 205001 Puerto Rico. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on February 11, 2005. Subzone 61I (76,000 BPD capacity 190 employees) was approved by the Board in 1997 for the manufacture of fuel products and certain petrochemical feedstocks and refinery by-products (Board Order 893, 62 FR 32290, 6/13/ 97). Board Order 893 included a time limit on the authority to admit nonprivileged foreign status crude into the refinery. This authority expired on September 30, 2000, and the applicant is now seeking to have the authority reinstated. The subzone is located on a 241-acre site at Route 901, Km. 2.7 and Yabucoa Harbor, Yabucoa, Puerto Rico, some 45 miles southeast of San Juan. The refinery is used to produce fuels and petrochemical products. All of the crude oil (80 percent of inputs) is sourced from abroad. Shell has also submitted an application for temporary/interim manufacturing authority at the subzone (Docket T–1–2005). Zone procedures would exempt the refinery from customs duty payments on the foreign products used in its exports (37 percent of production). On domestic sales, the company would be able to choose the customs duty rates that apply to certain petrochemical feedstocks and refinery by-products (duty-free) by admitting incoming foreign crude in non-privileged foreign status. The duty rates on inputs range from 5.25 cents/barrel to 10.5 cents/ barrel. The application indicates that the savings from zone procedures would help improve the refinery’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, a member of the FTZ staff has been appointed examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at one of the following addresses: 1.

[Order No. 1370]


Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Black & Decker Corporation 
(Power Tools, Lawn and Garden Tools, Fasteners, and Home Products), 
Fort Mill, SC

    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:

    Whereas, the Foreign-Trade Zones Act provides for `` * * * the 
establishment * * * of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the 
United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for 
other purposes,'' and authorizes the Foreign-Trade Zones Board to grant 
to qualified corporations the privilege of establishing foreign-trade 
zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs ports of entry;
    Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR part 400) provide for the 
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities 
cannot serve the specific use involved, and when the activity results 
in a significant public benefit and is in the public interest;
    Whereas, the South Carolina State Ports Authority, grantee of FTZ 
38, has made application to the Board for authority to establish 
special-purpose subzone status at the tool, fastener, and home product
