On April 9, 2007, The Department of State received an application from EPSL for a Presidential permit, pursuant to Executive Order 13337 of April 30, 2004, as amended, to construct, connect, operate, and maintain facilities (including a 20-inch diameter crude oil and liquid hydrocarbon pipeline) at the U.S.Canadian border at Neche, Pembina County, North Dakota, for the purpose of transporting liquid hydrocarbons and other petroleum products between the United States and Canada. EPSL has stated that it seeks this authorization in connection with its Southern Lights Pipeline Project (‘‘LSr Project’’), which is designed to transport Canadian crude oil from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (‘‘WCSB’’) to existing refinery markets in the Midwest region of the United States. The Secretary of State is designated and empowered to receive all applications for Presidential permits, as referred to in Executive Order 13337, as amended, for the construction, connection, operation, or maintenance, at the borders of the United States, of facilities for the exportation or importation of petroleum, petroleum products, coal, or other fuels to or from a foreign country. On July 27, 2007, the Department of State published in the Federal Register a Notification of Receipt and intent to prepare an Environment Assessment (EA). [** public comments were received in connection with that notice.] 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), a draft environmental assessment (EA) was prepared by EPSL on behalf of the Department of State to determine if there are any potential significant impacts and to address alternatives to the proposed action. The U.S. Army Corp. of Engineers was a Federal cooperating agency for the development of this EA. Cooperating agencies either have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to the environmental impacts assessed in connection with the proposal and are ebenthall on PRODPC61 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:18 Nov 27, 2007 Jkt 214001 involved in the Department’s analysis of those environmental impacts.

[FR Doc. 07–5850 Filed 11–27–07; 8:45 am] The FAA is currently preparing an EIS for the implementation of proposed projects at the Sitka Rocky Gutierrez Airport. Major projects already included in the EIS include improvements to the runway safety area; installation of an approach light system; construction of a parallel taxiway; construction of a seaplane pullout; and repairs and improvements to the airport seawall. These projects, along with other projects proposed to improve safety and efficiency and accommodate growing aviation demand, were identified in the Sitka Airport Master Plan. It has been determined that portions of property believed to be existing airport lands are not currently state owned, but instead are federally owned, and managed by the Bureau of Land Management. If the proposed airport improvements are approved through the EIS process, portions of the federal lands, including those commonly referred to as the Makhnati lands, would need to be transferred from federal to state ownership before implementation of proposed airport improvements. As such, the FAA is adding the transfer of the lands necessary for implementation of the projects being assessed in the EIS as well as lands necessary for other existing and future aviation uses, as a proposed action that will be examined in the EIS. The federally owned lands needed for aviation uses include segments of filled land on Japonski Island, Charcoal Island, and portions of submerged land surrounding the airport. To ensure that the full range of issues related to the proposed actions are addressed and that all significant issues are identified, the FAA intends to coordinate and consult with the public; tribal governments; and Federal, State, and local agencies that have jurisdiction by law or have special expertise with respect to any environmental impacts associated with the proposed projects. Agencies and the public may submit written comments via the address under, ‘‘To Submit Written Comments, Send to.’’ Comments must be submitted by December 31, 2007.
