Proposed rule; withdrawal. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is withdrawing the proposed rule entitled ‘‘Outer Continental Shelf Activities’’ that we published on December 7, 1999. The Coast Guard is withdrawing this proposed rule due to the passage of time, advances in technology, and changes in industry practices that have rendered the proposed rule obsolete. DATES: The proposed rule published December 7, 1999 (64 FR 68416) is withdrawn as of September 19, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: improvements in order to help make the OCS a safer work environment. The Coast Guard received comments from the public regarding the proposed rulemaking. These comments are available in the docket. III. Withdrawal In the nearly 20 years since the Coast Guard published the NPRM and the comment period closed, the offshore industry has continued to grow and evolve. Due to the passage of time, advances in technology, and changes in industry practice, we found that much of what we proposed in the NPRM is now obsolete and no longer applicable to the modern OCS work environment. Consequently, the NPRM is no longer suitable as a basis for further rulemaking action. Accordingly, the Coast Guard is withdrawing the ‘‘Outer Continental Shelf Activities’’ proposed rule announced in an NPRM published December 7, 1999 (64 FR 68416). This document is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a), and 43 U.S.C. 1333(d) and 1348(c). Dated: September 14, 2018. J.P.

Background The Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register on December 7, 1999, (64 FR 68416), entitled ‘‘Outer Continental Shelf Activities.’’ In our NPRM, we proposed revisions of our Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) regulations that pertain to workplace safety and health on vessels and facilities engaged in the exploration for, or development or production of, minerals on the OCS. The Coast Guard initiated this rulemaking in response to the various advances that had changed the nature of the offshore industry since the last major revision of our OCS regulations in 1982.

This document is the notice of that meeting. In the NOI, we announced that the Board of County Commissioners of Camden County, Georgia proposes to develop and operate a commercial space launch site, called Spaceport Camden, in an unincorporated area of Camden County, Georgia, approximately 11.5 miles due east of the town of Woodbine, Georgia. The site, near Floyd Creek, is on the coast, surrounded by salt marshes to the east and south, and the Satilla River to the north. In support of Spaceport Camden, the Board of County Commissioners of Camden County, Georgia requested that the Coast Guard establish safety zones which would be effective during launch, landing, and rocket test activities at the site. The Coast Guard establishes safety zones over areas of water and/or shore for safety or environmental purposes pursuant to the authority contained in 33 CFR part 165. A safety zone is a ‘‘. . . water area, shore area, or water and shore area to which, for safety or environmental purposes, access is VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:48 Sep 18, 2018 Jkt 244001 limited to authorized persons, vehicles, or vessels.’’ The applicants for Spaceport Camden propose up to 12 annual launches and landings during daylight hours, with one possible nighttime launch per year, of liquid-fueled, small to medium-large lift-class, orbital and suborbital vertical launch vehicles. In support of the proposed launches, the applicants for Spaceport Camden propose up to 12 engine tests per year. Launch trajectories would vary from 83 to 115 degrees for vehicles up to and including medium-large lift class. Because the trajectory of these launches would take the rockets over various navigable waterways, creeks and tributaries, sections of land, and areas offshore, applicants are required to limit or restrict access to certain areas surrounding a rocket test/launch site based on specific hazard analysis. The applicant’s request to establish safety zones during rocket launches, landings, and various tests is one element in meeting these safety requirements The range of potential safety zones for launch and landing activities encompasses an area which accounts for safety concerns associated with all potential launch trajectories. Individual launch safety zones could be smaller and depend on several factors unique to each event, such as actual trajectory, lift class, and payload. The range of potential safety zones for rocket tests encompasses a smaller area directly around the commercial space launch site. In all instances, the potential safety zones would be necessary to safeguard persons, property, and the marine environment during rocket launches, landings, and rocket test activities.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background and Purpose

    We are announcing a public meeting to receive comments regarding a 
proposal to establish safety zones on the navigable waterways in the 
vicinity of the proposed Spaceport Camden, near Woodbine, Georgia. We 
published a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) in the Federal Register on 
September 11, 2018 (83 FR 45864), entitled ``Safety Zone; Spaceport 
Camden, Woodbine, GA.'' In it we stated our intention to hold a public 
meeting, and to publish a notice announcing the location and date (83 
FR 45866). This document is the notice of that meeting.
    In the NOI, we announced that the Board of County Commissioners of 
Camden County, Georgia proposes to develop and operate a commercial 
space launch site, called Spaceport Camden, in an unincorporated area 
of Camden County, Georgia, approximately 11.5 miles due east of the 
town of Woodbine, Georgia. The site, near Floyd Creek, is on the coast, 
surrounded by salt marshes to the east and south, and the Satilla River 
to the north. In support of Spaceport Camden, the Board of County 
Commissioners of Camden County, Georgia requested that the Coast Guard 
establish safety zones which would be effective during launch, landing, 
and rocket test activities at the site.
    The Coast Guard establishes safety zones over areas of water and/or 
shore for safety or environmental purposes pursuant to the authority 
contained in 33 CFR part 165. A safety zone is a ``. . . water area, 
shore area, or water and shore area to which, for safety or 
environmental purposes, access is limited to authorized persons, 
vehicles, or vessels.''
    The applicants for Spaceport Camden propose up to 12 annual 
launches and landings during daylight hours, with one possible 
nighttime launch per year, of liquid-fueled, small to medium-large 
lift-class, orbital and suborbital vertical launch vehicles. In support 
of the proposed launches, the applicants for Spaceport Camden propose 
up to 12 engine tests per year. Launch trajectories would vary from 83 
to 115 degrees for vehicles up to and including medium-large lift 
class. Because the trajectory of these launches would take the rockets 
over various navigable waterways, creeks and tributaries, sections of 
land, and areas offshore, applicants are required to limit or restrict 
access to certain areas surrounding a rocket test/launch site based on 
specific hazard analysis. The applicant's request to establish safety 
zones during rocket launches, landings, and various tests is one 
element in meeting these safety requirements
    The range of potential safety zones for launch and landing 
activities encompasses an area which accounts for safety concerns 
associated with all potential launch trajectories. Individual launch 
safety zones could be smaller and depend on several factors unique to 
each event, such as actual trajectory, lift class, and payload. The 
range of potential safety zones for rocket tests encompasses a smaller 
area directly around the commercial space launch site. In all 
instances, the potential safety zones would be necessary to safeguard 
persons, property, and the marine environment during rocket launches, 
landings, and rocket test activities.
