The Plains application will supersede an application made by Dome on May 14, 2010 as it relates to the St. Clair Pipeline border facilities. The St. Clair pipelines cross the Canada- United States border from Sarnia, Canada into the United States, underneath the St. Clair River, terminating in Marysville, Michigan.

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

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Notice of Receipt of Application for a Presidential Permit to 
Operate and Maintain Pipeline Facilities on the Border of the United 
States and Canada.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Department of State (DOS) 
received an application from Plains LPG Services, L.P. (Plains LPG) to 
operate and maintain facilities it has acquired pertaining to six 
pipelines at the U.S.- Canada border (St. Clair Pipeline border 
facilities). The pipeline facilities were previously owned by Dome 
Petroleum, which operated and maintained them pursuant to earlier 
Presidential Permits. Plains LPG requests issuance of a new permit 
reflecting sole ownership of the St. Clair Pipeline border facilities 
and allowing Plains LPG to operate and maintain those facilities for 
use in transporting liquefied hydrocarbons, consistent with the terms 
of the currently applicable permits. The Plains application will 
supersede an application made by Dome on May 14, 2010 as it relates to 
the St. Clair Pipeline border facilities.
    The St. Clair pipelines cross the Canada- United States border from 
Sarnia, Canada into the United States, underneath the St. Clair River, 
terminating in Marysville, Michigan. The first two of the St Clair 
Pipelines were constructed and a permit issued in 1918. The remaining 
four of the St Clair Pipelines were constructed and a permit issued in 
1973.
    Plains LPG is a Texas limited partnership with its principle place 
of business at 333 Clay Street, Suite 1600, Houston Texas, 77002. 
Plains LPG is a subsidiary of Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. 
(``Plains''), a publicly traded master limited partnership organized 
under the laws of the State of Delaware and headquartered in Houston, 
Texas.
    Plains LPG acquired the St. Clair Pipelines following the indirect 
acquisition of Dome Petroleum LLC (formerly known as Dome Petroleum 
Corp.) by Plains LPG's affiliate, Plains Midstream Canada ULC (Plains 
Midstream). Specifically, Plains Midstream acquired BP Canada Energy 
Corporation, which owned Dome Petroleum LLC. Immediately following the 
acquisition by Plains Midstream, Dome Petroleum LLC became Plains 
Midstream Superior LLC, which subsequently merged with Plains LPG. That 
acquisition and merger resulted in the allocation and transfer of the 
St. Clair Pipeline border facilities to Plains LPG.
    Under E.O. 13337 the Secretary of State is designated and empowered 
to receive all applications for Presidential Permits for the 
construction, connection, operation, or maintenance at the borders of 
the United States, of facilities for the exportation or importation of 
liquid petroleum, petroleum products, or other non-gaseous fuels to or 
from a foreign country. The Department of State is circulating this 
application to concerned federal agencies for comment. The Department 
of State has the responsibility to determine whether issuance of a new 
Presidential Permit reflecting the change in ownership or control of 
the St. Clair Pipeline border facilities would be in the U.S. national 
interest.

DATES: Interested parties are invited to submit comments not later than 
30 days after the publication date of this notice by email to 
Plainslpgservicespermit@state.gov with regard to whether issuing a new 
Presidential Permit reflecting the corporate succession and authorizing 
Plains LPG to operate and maintain the St. Clair Pipeline border 
facilities would be in the national interest. The application is 
available at http://www.state.gov/e/enr/c52945.htm.
