PHMSA has received the following special permit request: Nature of special permit To authorize Fairbanks Natural Gas, LLC, (FNG) to construct a 125,000 Barrel Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) Single Containment Storage Tank at its existing storage and vaporization facility at 2942 Tria Road, in Fairbanks, Alaska. The proposed tank will be located within 1 mile of Metro Field Airport, a private airstrip with FAA identifier MTF. FNG requested that the Special Permit be valid for the 50-year life expectancy of the tank. 49 CFR 193.2155(b) states that ‘‘An LNG storage tank must not be located within a horizontal distance of 1 mile (1.6 km) from the ends, or @ mile (0.4 km) from the nearest point of a runway, whichever is longer.’’ The height of the LNG structures in the vicinity of an airport must also comply with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements in 14 CFR Section 1.1. FNG believes that the location of the tank at 0.84 miles from the end of the runway, and not directly in the traffic pattern of the airport represent a low risk to the public and airport safety. The height of the tank is approximately 40 feet lower in elevation than an existing known obstruction in the traffic pattern of Metro Field Airport, so FNG stated that its design will comply with requirements of 14 CFR 1.1.
