Commission Findings and Accelerated Approval After careful consideration, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities exchange 14 and, in particular, the requirements of section 6 of the Act.15 Specifically, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with section 6(b)(5) of the Act,16 which requires, among other things, that the rules of a national securities exchange be designed to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. Surveillance The Commission notes that Exchange has represented that it has an adequate surveillance program in place for options based on Commodity Pool Units. The Exchange may obtain trading information via the Intermarket Surveillance Group (‘‘ISG’’) from other exchanges who are members or affiliates of the ISG and has entered into numerous comprehensive surveillance sharing agreements with various commodity futures exchanges worldwide. Prior to listing and trading options on Commodity Pool Units, the Exchange represented that it will either have the ability to obtain specific trading information via ISG or through a comprehensive surveillance sharing agreement with the exchange or exchanges where the particular commodity futures and/or options on commodity futures are traded. In addition, the Exchange represented that the addition of Commodity Pool Unit 14 In approving this proposed rule change, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). 15 15 U.S.C. 78f. 16 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).

Listing and Trading of Options on Commodity Pool Units The Commission notes that, pursuant to the proposed rule change, a Commodity Pool Unit will be subject to the provisions of NYSE Arca Rule 5.3 and 5.4, as applicable. These provisions include requirements regarding initial and continued listing standards, the creation/redemption process for Commodity Pool Units, and trading halts. All Commodity Pool Units must be traded through a national securities exchange or through the facilities of a national securities association, and must be ‘‘NMS stock’’ as defined under Rule 600 of Regulation NMS.18 The Commission believes that this proposal is necessary to enable the Exchange to list and trade options on an expanding range of Commodity Pool Units currently approved for trading and that it is reasonable to expect other types of Commodity Pool Units to be introduced for trading in the future. This proposal would help ensure that the Exchange will be able to list options on Commodity Pool Units that have been recently launched as well as any other similar Commodity Pool Units that may be listed and traded in the future 19 thereby offering investors greater option choices. The Commission finds good cause, pursuant to section 19(b)(2) of the Act,20 for approving the proposed rule change, as amended, prior to the thirtieth day after the date of publication of notice in the Federal Register. The Commission notes that the proposal is consistent with the Exchange’s listing and trading standards in NYSE Arca Rules 5.3 and 5.4 and the Commission has recently approved a similar proposal, after publishing it for a full comment period and receiving no comments.21 The Commission does not believe that the proposed rule change, as amended, raises novel regulatory issues. Consequently, the Commission believes that it is appropriate to permit investors to benefit from the flexibility afforded by trading these products as soon as possible. Accordingly, the Commission finds that there is good cause, consistent with V. Conclusion NYSE Arca Rules 6.8 and 6.9.

The Department of State has received an application from Eagle Operating Inc. (‘‘Eagle’’) for a Presidential permit, pursuant to Executive Order 13337 of April 30, 2004, to construct, connect, operate, and maintain a 3-inch diameter water pipeline at the U.S.-Canadian border, at Burke County, North Dakota, for the purpose of transporting water produced in association with crude oil and natural gas production in Saskatchewan, Canada to a disposal facility located in Burke County, North Dakota. Eagle seeks this authorization in connection with its Lakeview Pipeline Expansion Project (‘‘Lakeview’’). According to Eagle’s application, the new pipeline is designed to transport salt water produced in association with crude oil and natural gas production from Eagle’s Florence South Horizontal 5–1–1–1 W2M well (‘‘Florence Well’’), and other wells to be drilled in the area, located in the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada, to Eagle’s disposal facility at its Schmidt Estate Well #1–36SWD located in Burke County, North Dakota.

According to the description in Eagle’s application, the proposed new border crossing would consist of approximately five-hundred (500) feet of 3-inch diameter pipeline on the U.S. side of the international boundary, which would be buried below ground level. The proposed new section of pipe will run from the international boundary to connect to the existing 2inch diameter pipe connected to the Schmidt Estate #1–36 Well. The new pipeline would become part of the Lakeview Pipeline System. As required by E.O. 13337, the Department of State is circulating this application to concerned federal agencies for comment.

[Public Notice 5869]


Notice of Receipt of Application for a Presidential Permit for 
Pipeline Facilities To Be Constructed, Operated, and Maintained on the 
Borders of the United States

AGENCY: Department of State.
    The Department of State has received an application from Eagle 
Operating Inc. (``Eagle'') for a Presidential permit, pursuant to 
Executive Order 13337 of April 30, 2004, to construct, connect, 
operate, and maintain a 3-inch diameter water pipeline at the U.S.-
Canadian border, at Burke County, North Dakota, for the purpose of 
transporting water produced in association with crude oil and natural 
gas production in Saskatchewan, Canada to a disposal facility located 
in Burke County, North Dakota. Eagle seeks this authorization in 
connection with its Lakeview Pipeline Expansion Project (``Lakeview''). 
According to Eagle's application, the new pipeline is designed to 
transport salt water produced in association with crude oil and natural 
gas production from Eagle's Florence South Horizontal 5-1-1-1 W2M well 
(``Florence Well''), and other wells to be drilled in the area, located 
in the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada, to Eagle's disposal facility 
at its Schmidt Estate Well 1-36SWD located in Burke County, 
North Dakota.
    Eagle is a corporation organized under the laws of the State of 
North Dakota. Eagle's business address is P.O. Box 853, Kenmare, North 
Dakota 58746. According to the application, Eagle operates 
approximately 193 oil and gas wells located in the State of North

Dakota. As part of these operations, Eagle is the operator of 
approximately 13 wells utilized for the disposal of salt water produced 
in association with oil and gas production in the State of North 
Dakota. Eagle is also the owner of oil and gas leasehold interests 
located in the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada, including the Florence 
Well. The Florence Well was completed as a producer of oil and gas on 
or about August 10, 2006. The Florence Well is operated by Colonia 
Energy Corp. (``Colonia''). Colonia owns 45 percent of the well and 
Eagle owns 55 percent of the well. Eagle has asserted in its 
application that if this application for Presidential permit is 
approved and the expansion of its existing pipeline is ultimately 
built, it is likely that Colonia will participate in the line and 
ownership in the pipeline will be identical to that of the Florence 
Well (45 percent Colonia and 55 percent Eagle).
    According to the description in Eagle's application, the proposed 
new border crossing would consist of approximately five-hundred (500) 
feet of 3-inch diameter pipeline on the U.S. side of the international 
boundary, which would be buried below ground level. The proposed new 
section of pipe will run from the international boundary to connect to 
the existing 2-inch diameter pipe connected to the Schmidt Estate 
1-36 Well. The new pipeline would become part of the Lakeview 
Pipeline System.
    As required by E.O. 13337, the Department of State is circulating 
this application to concerned federal agencies for comment. In 
accordance with Section 102(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act 
of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4332(C)) and implementing regulations 
promulgated by the Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR parts 1500-
1508) and the Department of State (22 CFR part 161), including in 
particular 22 CFR 161.7(c)(1), the Department of State intends to 
prepare an environmental assessment (EA) to determine if there are any 
potential significant impacts and to address alternatives to the 
proposed action.

DATES: The Department of State welcomes public comment and invites 
those who are interested in submitting comments relative to this 
proposal to provide such comments, in duplicate, on or before September
