Foreign-Trade Zones Board

[Order No. 1426]


Extension of Nonprivileged Foreign Status Authority, Five Oil 
Refinery/Petrochemical Subzones

    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 Board approved the oil refinery/petrochemical complex 
subzones listed below to conduct certain activity under zone 
procedures, subject to three conditions;
    Whereas, applications were submitted from the FTZ grantees of the 
subzones listed below, requesting a time extension of authority 
(removing Condition No. 3) to elect nonprivileged foreign status (NPF) 
on crude oil and related inputs used in the production of certain 
petrochemical feedstocks and refinery by-products at the crude oil 
refineries/petrochemical complexes listed below;
    Whereas, Conditions No. 1 and No. 2 of the original Board Orders 
would remain in effect, with Condition No. 2 updated to conform to the 
standard FTZ oil refinery/petrochemical restrictions on eligible 
foreign inputs and finished products as listed below;
    Whereas, the applications were filed by the Board on November 30, 
2004, and notice describing the applications and inviting public 
comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 54-2004, 69 FR 
70996, 12/8/2004); and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the 
examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and 
Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that approval of the 
applications would be in the public interest if approval were subject 
to the conditions listed below;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby amends the Board Orders listed 
below, authorizing an extension of authority for the listed subzones, 
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 
400.28, and further subject to the following conditions:
    1. Foreign status (19 CFR 146.41, 146.42) products consumed as fuel 
for the refinery shall be subject to the applicable duty rate.
    2. Privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41) shall be elected on 
all foreign merchandise admitted to the subzone, except that 
nonprivileged foreign (NPF) status (19 CFR 146.42) may be elected on 
refinery
