    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board

amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR 
Part 400). It was formally filed by the Board on February 25, 2008.
    The Baker Hughes facility (11 acres, 12 employees) is located at 
322 Manning Road, in Corpus Christi, within the Corpus Christi Customs

manufacturing, warehousing and distribution activities related to the 
processing of raw barite (HTSUS 2511.10.50) into ground barite (HTSUS 
2511.10.10) (up to 350,000 tons annually). Ground barite is used in the 
production of drilling fluids (drilling mud) and various specialty 
chemicals for use by the oil and natural gas exploration industry. 
Baker Hughes sources the majority of its raw

baritefrom abroad. The duty rate on the raw barite is $1.25 per metric 
ton.
    This application requests authority for Baker Hughes to conduct the 
activity under FTZ procedures, which would exempt the company from 
Customs duty payments on the imported barite used in export production. 
Less than one percent of production is exported. On domestic sales, the 
company could choose the lower duty rate (duty-free) for the imported 
raw barite used in manufacturing that applies to the finished product. 
The majority of FTZ-related savings will come from the elimination of 
the duty on the finished product. Baker Hughes will also realize 
additional savings on the elimination of duties on materials that 
become scrap/waste during manufacturing. The application indicates that 
the FTZ-related savings would improve the plant's international 
competitiveness.

report to the Board.
