Towing Safety Advisory Committee; Notice of Open Teleconference Meetings, 36539-36540 [E6-10063]

Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 123 / Tuesday, June 27, 2006 / Notices the Coast Guard’s LOR and other actions under this proposal, the Coast Guard will serve as a cooperating agency. The proposed terminal is an LNG import, storage, re-gasification and power generation facility. LNG carriers (ships) would berth at a new pier and LNG would be transferred by pipeline from the carriers to one of two storage tanks, each with a net capacity of 160,000 cubic meters (m3). The LNG would then be re-gasified and metered into natural gas pipelines. LNG would be delivered to the terminal in doublehulled LNG carriers ranging in capacity from 89,000 m3 to 160,000 m3. The larger carriers would measure up to approximately 935 feet long with up to approximately a 148 foot wide beam, and draw approximately 39 feet of water. The Jordan Cove Gas terminal would handle approximately 80 vessels per year, depending upon natural gas demand, and carrier size, with shipments arriving about every five days. The U.S. Coast Guard exercises regulatory authority over LNG facilities which affect the safety and security of port areas and navigable waterways under Executive Order 10173, the Magnuson Act (50 U.S.C. 191), the Ports and Waterways Safety Act of 1972, as amended (33 U.S.C. 1221, et seq.) and the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (46 U.S.C. 701). The Coast Guard is responsible for matters related to navigation safety, vessel engineering and safety standards, and all matters pertaining to the safety of facilities or equipment located in or adjacent to navigable waters up to the last valve immediately before the receiving tanks. The Coast Guard also has authority for LNG facility security plan review, approval, and compliance verification as provided in title 33 CFR Part 105, and recommendation for siting as it pertains to the management of vessel traffic in and around the LNG facility. Upon receipt of an LOI from an owner or operator intending to build a new LNG facility, the Coast Guard COTP conducts an analysis that results in a letter of recommendation issued to the owner or operator and to the State and local governments having jurisdiction, addressing the suitability of the waterway to accommodate LNG vessels. Specifically, the letter of recommendation addresses the suitability of the waterway based on: • The physical location and layout of the facility and its berthing and mooring arrangements. • The LNG vessels’ characteristics and the frequency of LNG shipments to the facility. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:33 Jun 26, 2006 Jkt 208001 • Commercial, industrial, environmentally sensitive, and residential areas in and adjacent to the waterway used by the LNG vessels en route to the facility. • Density and character of marine traffic on the waterway. • Bridges or other manmade obstructions in the waterway. • Depth of water. • Tidal range. • Natural hazards, including rocks and sandbars. • Underwater pipelines and cables. • Distance of berthed LNG vessels from the channel, and the width of the channel. In addition, the Coast Guard will review and approve the facility’s operations manual and emergency response plan (33 CFR 127.019), as well as the facility’s security plan (33 CFR 105.410). The Coast Guard will also provide input to other Federal, State, and local government agencies reviewing the project. Under an interagency agreement, the Coast Guard will provide input to, and coordinate with FERC, the lead Federal agency for authorizing the siting and construction of onshore LNG facilities, on safety and security aspects of the Jordan Cove project, including both the marine and land-based aspects of the project. In order to complete a thorough analysis and fulfill the regulatory mandates cited above, the COTP Portland, OR will be conducting a formal risk assessment, evaluating various safety and security aspects associated with Jordan Cove’s proposed project. This risk assessment will be accomplished through a series of workshops focusing on the areas of waterways safety, port security, and consequence management, with involvement from a broad cross-section of government and port stakeholders with expertise in each of the respective areas. The workshops will be by invitation only. However, comments received during the public comment period will be considered as input into the risk assessment process.
