Discussion Under 33 CFR 127.007(a), an owner or operator planning new construction to expand or modify marine terminal operations in an existing facility handling Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or Liquefied Hazardous Gas (LHG), PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 where the construction, expansion, or modification would result in an increase in the size and/or frequency of LNG or LHG marine traffic on the waterway associated with the facility, must submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to the COTP of the zone in which the facility is located. Under 33 CFR 127.007(e), an owner or operator planning such an expansion must also file or update a Waterway Suitability Assessment (WSA) that addresses the proposed increase in LNG or LHG marine traffic in the associated waterway. Enterprise Terminalling LLC located in Vidor, Texas submitted an LOI and WSA on February 27, 2014 regarding the company’s proposed construction and operation of LHG capabilities at its Vidor, Texas facility. Under 33 CR 127.009, after receiving an LOI, the COTP issues a Letter of Recommendation (LOR) as to the suitability of the waterway for LNG or LHG marine traffic to the appropriate jurisdictional authorities. The LOR is based on a series of factors outlined in 33 CFR 127.009 that related to the physical nature of the affected waterway and issues of safety and security associated with LNG or LHG marine traffic on the affected waterway. The purpose of this notice is to solicit public comments on the proposed increase in LHG marine traffic on the Sabine-Neches Waterway. The Coast Guard believes that input from the public may be useful to the COTP with respect to development of the LOR. Additionally, the Coast Guard intends to task the Area Maritime Security Committee, Port Arthur, Texas and the Southeast Texas Waterways Advisory Council (SETWAC) with forming a subcommittee comprised of affected port users and stakeholders. The goal of these subcommittees will be to gather information to help the COTP assess the suitability of the associated waterway for increased LHG marine traffic as it relates to navigational safety and security. On January 24, 2011, the Coast Guard published Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 01–2011, ‘‘Guidance Related to Waterfront Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Facilities.’’ NVIC 01–2011 provides guidance for owners and operators seeking approval to build and operate LNG facilities. While NVIC 01–2011 is specific to LNG, it provides useful process information and guidance for owners and operators seeking approval to build and operate LHG facilities as well. The Coast Guard will refer to NVIC 01–2011 for process information and guidance in evaluating Enterprise Terminalling LLC WSA.

Discussion

    Under 33 CFR 127.007(a), an owner or operator planning new 
construction to expand or modify marine terminal operations in an 
existing facility handling Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or Liquefied 
Hazardous Gas (LHG), where the construction, expansion, or modification 
would result in an increase in the size and/or frequency of LNG or LHG 
marine traffic on the waterway associated with the facility, must 
submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to the COTP of the zone in which the 
facility is located. Under 33 CFR 127.007(e), an owner or operator 
planning such an expansion must also file or update a Waterway 
Suitability Assessment (WSA) that addresses the proposed increase in 
LNG or LHG marine traffic in the associated waterway. Enterprise 
Terminalling LLC located in Vidor, Texas submitted an LOI and WSA on 
February 27, 2014 regarding the company's proposed construction and 
operation of LHG capabilities at its Vidor, Texas facility.
    Under 33 CR 127.009, after receiving an LOI, the COTP issues a 
Letter of Recommendation (LOR) as to the suitability of the waterway 
for LNG or LHG marine traffic to the appropriate jurisdictional 
authorities. The LOR is based on a series of factors outlined in 33 CFR 
127.009 that related to the physical nature of the affected waterway 
and issues of safety and security associated with LNG or LHG marine 
traffic on the affected waterway.
    The purpose of this notice is to solicit public comments on the 
proposed increase in LHG marine traffic on the Sabine-Neches Waterway. 
The Coast Guard believes that input from the public may be useful to 
the COTP with respect to development of the LOR. Additionally, the 
Coast Guard intends to task the Area Maritime Security Committee, Port 
Arthur, Texas and the Southeast Texas Waterways Advisory Council 
(SETWAC) with forming a subcommittee comprised of affected port users 
and stakeholders. The goal of these subcommittees will be to gather 
information to help the COTP assess the suitability of the associated 
waterway for increased LHG marine traffic as it relates to navigational 
safety and security.
    On January 24, 2011, the Coast Guard published Navigation and 
Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 01-2011, ``Guidance Related to 
Waterfront Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Facilities.'' NVIC 01-2011 
provides guidance for owners and operators seeking approval to build 
and operate LNG facilities. While NVIC 01-2011 is specific to LNG, it 
provides useful process information and guidance for owners and 
operators seeking approval to build and operate LHG facilities as well. 
The Coast Guard will refer to NVIC 01-2011 for process information and 
guidance in evaluating Enterprise Terminalling LLC WSA. A copy of NVIC 
01-2011 is available on
