Discussion

    Under 33 CFR 127.007(a), an owner or operator planning to build a 
new facility handling Liquefied Hazardous Gas (LHG), or an owner or 
operator planning new construction to expand or modify marine terminal 
operations in an existing facility handling LHG, where the 
construction, expansion, or modification would result in an increase in 
the size and/or frequency of LHG marine traffic on the waterway 
associated with the proposed facility or modification to an existing 
facility, must submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to the COTP of the zone 
in which the facility is or will be located. Under 33 CFR 127.007(e), 
an owner or operator planning such new construction or expansion of an 
existing facility must also file or update a Waterway Suitability 
Assessment (WSA) that addresses the proposed increase in LHG marine 
traffic in the associated waterway. Lynx Terminals, located in Port 
Arthur, TX submitted an LOI and WSA on August 09, 2016 regarding the 
company's proposed plans to handle and transport LHG at the Port of 
Port Arthur, TX facility.
    Under 33 CFR 127.009, after receiving an LOI, the COTP issues a 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 listed in 33 CFR 127.009 that relate to the physical 
nature of the affected waterway and issues of safety and security 
associated with 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 validating the information provided in Lynx 
Terminals' WSA and development of the LOR. Additionally, the Coast 
Guard intends to task the Area Maritime Security Committee, Port 
Arthur, TX and the Southeast Texas Waterways Advisory Council with 
forming a subcommittee comprised of affected port users and 
stakeholders. The goal of this subcommittee 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 maritime security. In addition to the other documents 
referenced in this notice, a brief summation of LYNX Terminals' 
proposal is available for viewing in the public docket for this notice.
    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
