Notice of Receipt of Application for a Presidential Permit To 
Operate and Maintain Pipeline Facilities on the Border of the United 
States

    Notice is hereby given that the Department of State has received an 
application from Plains Pipeline, L.P. (``PPLP'') for a Presidential 
permit, pursuant to Executive Order 13337 of April 30, 2004, to operate 
and maintain a pipeline for transporting petroleum products from El 
Paso, Texas, to Juarez, Mexico (``Juarez pipeline''), crossing the 
international boundary line between the United States and Mexico at a 
point near El Paso, Texas. On June 19, 1995, the Department of State, 
acting pursuant to delegated authority, issued a Presidential permit to 
the Chevron Pipe Line Company (``Chevron''), a Delaware corporation 
with its principal offices in San Francisco, California, to 
``construct, connect, operate and maintain'' the Juarez pipeline. 
According to the application, PLPP acquired the Juarez pipeline from 
Chevron on September 1, 2006 as part of a large asset acquisition.
    According to the application, PPLP is a Texas Limited Partnership 
engaged in the interstate and intrastate transportation of crude oil by 
pipeline. Also, according to the application, PPLP is an indirect 
wholly owned subsidiary of Plains All American Pipeline, L.P., a 
Delaware Limited Partnership. PPLP has, in written correspondence to 
the Department of State, committed to abide by the relevant terms and 
conditions of the permit previously issued by the Department to 
Chevron. Further, PPLP indicates in that correspondence that there have 
been no substantial changes in the operations of the Juarez pipeline 
from those originally authorized by the Department and further states 
that the future operation of the pipeline will remain essentially 
unchanged from that previously permitted. Therefore, in accordance with 
22 CFR 161.7(b) (3) and the Department's Procedures for Issuance of a 
Presidential Permit Where There Has Been a Transfer of the Underlying 
Facility, Bridge or Border Crossing for Land Transportation (70 FR 
30990, May 31, 2005), the Department of State does not intend to 
conduct an environmental review of the application unless information 
is brought to its attention that the transfer potentially would have a 
significant impact on the quality of the human environment.
    As required by E.O. 13337, the Department of State is circulating 
this application to concerned Federal agencies for comment.

DATES: Interested parties are invited to submit, in duplicate, comments 
relative to this proposal on or before December 28, 2006 to Jeffrey 
Izzo, Office of International Energy and Commodities Policy, Department 
of State, Washington, DC 20520. The application and related documents 
that are part of the record to be considered by the Department of State 
in connection with this application are available for inspection in the 
Office of International Energy and Commodities Policy during normal
