The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by: E:\FR\FM\26JNP1.SGM 26JNP1 28795 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 121 / Monday, June 26, 2017 / Proposed Rules Removing Class D airspace at Enid Woodring Municipal Airport, OK; Removing Class D airspace at Enid Vance AFB, OK; Establishing Class D airspace at Enid Woodring Regional Airport, Enid, OK, within a 4.5-mile radius of the airport; 1 Establishing Class D airspace at Vance AFB, Vance AFB, OK, within a 5.1-mile radius of the airport; Amending Class E airspace designated as a surface area within a 4.5-mile radius (increased from a 4.1-mile radius) of Enid Woodring Regional Airport, Enid, OK, removing the portion within a 5.1-mile radius of Vance AFB, and removing Vance AFB from the airspace description; Establishing Class E airspace designated as a surface area within a 5.1 mile radius of Vance AFB, Vance AFB, OK; Removing Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D or E surface area at Enid Vance AFB, OK; Removing Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D or E surface area at Enid Woodring Municipal Airport, OK; Establishing Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D or E surface area at Enid Woodring Regional Airport, Enid, OK, with a segment each side of the VOR/DME extending from the 4.5-mile radius of the airport to 7 miles north and 7 miles south of the airport; Establishing Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D or E surface area at Vance AFB, Vance AFB, OK, with a segment each side of the Vance VORTAC extending from the 5.1-mile radius to 6.1 miles south of the airport; and Amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Enid, OK, within a 7-mile radius (increasing from a 6.6-mile radius) of Woodring Regional Airport, removing the Woodring VOR/DME extensions, and updating the name of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. The FAA determined that due to the differing operating hours of the two airports, the airspace descriptions should be separated for safety and management of IFR operations at these airports. Also, after an airspace review of the Woodring Regional Airport, the FAA found airspace redesign necessary at Enid Woodring Regional Airport to 1 This Class D airspace would replace the Class D airspace at Enid Woodring Municipal Airport that is being proposed for removal in this action. This proposal would increase the existing 4.1-mile radius around the airport to a 4.5-mile radius. The part-time NOTAM language is included in the new legal description.

The part-time NOTAM information would be included in the airspace descriptions for the new airspace and would be retained in the legal descriptions for the amended airspace. Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

Executive order FR Federal Register Pub. L. Public Law § Section U.S.C. United States Code COTP Captain of the Port II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis Paulsboro Natural Gas Pipeline Company and Buckeye Partners, L.P. notified the Coast Guard that removal of portions of old natural gas pipelines will need to be conducted in compliance with the Army Corps of Engineers request for removal due to the upcoming widening and deepening of the Delaware River, main navigational channel, in which the depth of the channel will be taken to 45 feet. The Captain of the Port Delaware Bay has determined that potential hazards associated with the pipe-removal operational would be a safety concern for anyone within a 150-yard radius of the working vessels. The Coast Guard is proposing to issue this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231; 33 CFR 1.05–1 and 160.5; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. The Captain of the Port, Delaware Bay, has determined that potential hazards associated with pipe-removal operations, beginning on or about July 29, 2017, will be a safety concern for vessels attempting to transit the Delaware River, along Billingsport Range. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment on the navigable waters within the safety zone while removal of the pipeline is being conducted. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard Captain of the Port is proposing to establish temporary safety zones on portions of the Delaware River on or about July 29, 2017, until October 31, 2017, unless cancelled earlier by the Captain of the Port, to facilitate the removal of existing pipeline on the river bed of the Delaware River, along the Billingsport Range. With plans to widen the commercial shipping channel in the Delaware River, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (ACOE) has requested both Paulsboro Natural Gas Pipeline Company, LLC (PBF) and Buckeye Partners, L.P.

extensions, and updating the name of the airport to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database.
    The FAA determined that due to the differing operating hours of the 
two airports, the airspace descriptions should be separated for safety 
and management of IFR operations at these airports. Also, after an 
airspace review of the Woodring Regional Airport, the FAA found 
airspace redesign necessary at Enid Woodring Regional Airport to 
accommodate new SIAPs at the airport and for the safety and management 
of IFR operations at these airports. The part-time NOTAM information 
would be included in the airspace descriptions for the new airspace and 
would be retained in the legal descriptions for the amended airspace.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated 
August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is incorporated 
by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations 
listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' 
under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under 
DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 
1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation 
as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter 
that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
