Both vessels would be equipped to vaporize LNG cargo to natural gas through an onboard closed loop shelland-tube vaporization system, and to odorize and meter gas for send-out by means of the unloading buoy to conventional subsea pipelines. The mooring buoys would be connected through the hull of the vessels to specially designed turrets that would enable the vessel to weathervane or rotate in response to prevailing winds, waves, and the current directions. When the vessels are not present the buoys would be submerged approximately 100 feet below the surface. The unloading buoys would connect through flexible risers and two (2) approximately 2.5 mile long 30-inch flow lines located on the seabed that would connect directly to the Calypso pipeline, a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) permitted pipeline, yet to be constructed which would then connect to existing onshore pipeline system. The Calypso would be capable of delivering natural gas in a continuous flow by having at least one TRV or the SRS regasifying at all times. The system would be designed so that a TRV and the SRS can regasify simultaneously for concurrent unloading of natural gas. Calypso would have an average throughput capacity of approximately 1.1 billion standard cubic feet per day (bcsfd) and a peak delivery capacity of 1.9 bcsfd. Existing onshore delivery systems would be utilized and no new construction of onshore pipelines or LNG storage facilities are included as part of the proposed deepwater port. Existing shore based infrastructure will be used to facilitate movement of personnel, equipment, supplies, and disposable materials between the Terminal and shore. Construction of the deepwater port would be expected to take three (3) years should a license be issued. The deepwater port, if licensed, would be designed, constructed and operated in accordance with applicable codes and standards and would have an expected operating life of approximately 25 years.

Kansas City Transportation Company LLC--Lease and Operation 
Exemption--Kansas City Terminal Railway Company

    Kansas City Transportation Company LLC (KCTL), a Class III rail 
carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 
to lease from Kansas City Terminal Railway Company (KCT) and operate 
approximately 5.5 miles of rail line from milepost 5.78 near Sheffield 
Junction to the end of the line at milepost 11.23 near Blue Valley, in 
Jackson County, MO.
    This transaction is related to the concurrently filed notice of 
exemption in STB Finance Docket No. 35084, Kansas City Terminal Railway 
Company--Acquisition Exemption--BNSF Railway Company, wherein KCT, the 
owner of KCTL, seeks to acquire by purchase from BNSF Railway Company 
the 5.5 miles of rail line described above.
    Based on projected revenues for the line, KCTL expects to remain a 
Class III

rail carrier after consummation of the proposed transaction. KCTL 
certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of this 
transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I 
rail carrier. Because the projected annual revenues of the line, 
together with KCTL's projected annual revenue, will exceed $5 million, 
KCTL certified, on September 21, 2007, that it had served the required 
notice of the transaction on the national offices of the labor unions 
for those employees affected on the lines and posted such notice at the 
workplace of the employees on the affected lines on September 20, 2007.
    KCTL states that it intends to consummate the transaction on 
November 20, 2007. The earliest this transaction may be consummated is 
November 20, 2007, (the effective date of the exemption (60 days after 
KCTL certified its compliance with the labor notice requirements of 49 
CFR 1150.42(e))).
    KCTL also states that, upon authorization of this transaction, it 
plans to enter into a service agreement with Kaw River Railroad, Inc. 
(Kaw River), under which Kaw River would provide certain railroad 
operating services on this 5.5-mile line. KCTL states that Kaw River is 
not seeking separate authority to operate as a common carrier over the 
line. In publishing this notice, the Board takes no position on whether 
Kaw River would need to obtain Board authority to provide services 
pursuant to this agreement with KCTL. Given the Board's conclusions in 
Kansas City Transportation Company LLC--Lease and Assignment of Lease 
Exemption--Kansas City Terminal Railway Company and Kaw River Railroad, 
Inc., STB Finance Docket No. 34830 (STB served May 23, 2007), and 
KCTL's recognition of those conclusions in this proceeding, Kaw River 
should file a notice of exemption to operate pursuant to the agreement 
and simultaneously file a motion to dismiss if it believes that 
authority is not needed.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption 
under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a 
petition to revoke will not automatically stay the transaction. 
Petitions for stay must be filed no later than November 13, 2007 (at 
least 7 days before the exemption becomes effective).
    An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB 
Finance Docket No. 35085, must be filed with the Surface Transportation 
Board, 395 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a 
copy of each pleading must be served on Michael J. Barron, Jr.,
