Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Coushatta, LA, 65113-65115 [2018-27370]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 243 / Wednesday, December 19, 2018 / Proposed Rules applicable contracts.’’ 10 DOE regulations do not specify when submission of such written notification must be made to constitute ‘‘as soon as practicable.’’ However, in DOE/FE’s long-term export orders, DOE/FE expressly ‘‘finds that the submission of all such [long-term commercial export] agreements or contracts within 30 days of their execution . . . will be consistent with the ‘to the extent practicable’ requirement of section 590.202(b).’’ 11 Likewise, DOE/FE imposes a 30-day time period for an authorization holder to notify DOE/FE of a change in the company name, the term of any long-term contracts, and other relevant modifications.12 III. Proposed Regulatory Interpretations DOE proposes the following clarifications to provide specificity, and thereby to reduce potential confusion and regulatory burdens, concerning DOE/FE’s practice under the aforementioned regulations. As set forth above, these proposed clarifications are consistent with DOE/FE’s practice under its long-term export authorizations, and thus are intended to provide additional guidance for authorization holders in complying with existing and/or future orders. A. Proposed Interpretation of 10 CFR 590.202(c) DOE proposes to clarify the types of ‘‘contracts and purchase agreements’’ associated with the export of natural gas that are ‘‘relevant’’ for purposes of 10 CFR 590.202(c). DOE proposes to interpret the term ‘‘relevant contracts and purchase agreements’’ to include the following types of executed,13 longterm 14 binding commercial agreements associated with the export of natural gas (collectively, Executed Agreements): i. Natural gas supply agreements; ii. Terminal service agreements; iii. Purchase and sale agreements; 15 10 10 CFR 590.407. e.g., Eagle LNG Partners Jacksonville II LLC, DOE/FE Order No. 4078, at 43 (Terms and Conditions Para. H); see also id. at 46–47 (Ordering Paras. I(i), (ii), K, Q) (imposing 30-day reporting periods). 12 See id. at 48 (Ordering Para. L). 13 ‘‘Executed’’ means that all parties to a longterm commercial agreement have signed the agreement, regardless of whether conditions precedent have been met, and that such an agreement is binding upon all parties to the transaction. 14 ‘‘Long-term’’ means any Executed Agreement with a term of two years or longer. 15 ‘‘Purchase and sale agreements’’ include longterm commercial agreements covering ‘‘free on board’’ sales subsequent to a terminal service agreement. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with PROPOSALS1 11 See, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Dec 18, 2018 Jkt 247001 iv. Liquefaction tolling agreements, liquefaction and regasification tolling capacity agreements, and similar types of agreements; and v. Any other natural gas export contractual agreements that are associated with the first sale or transfer of natural gas at the point of export and specify the volume of natural gas under contract.16 Under DOE’s proposed interpretation, Executed Agreements may be associated with the sale, transfer, and/or export of natural gas, including LNG, prior to export.17 For example, for export facilities that operate on a tolling model, if an off-taker that holds initial title to the LNG within the storage tank of an export facility (Party A) enters into an agreement to sell the LNG to another party (Party B) prior to the LNG being loaded onto a ship, both Party A’s and Party B’s contracts would be considered ‘‘relevant’’ for purposes of 10 CFR 590.202(c). B. Proposed Interpretation of 10 CFR 590.407 DOE proposes to interpret the phrase ‘‘as soon as practicable’’ in 10 CFR 590.407 with respect to the continuing obligation of authorization holders and Registrants to provide written notification to DOE/FE of any prospective or actual changes to the information submitted during the application process. Specifically, DOE/ FE will consider a written notification of any Executed Agreement(s) filed within 30 days of its execution to have been submitted ‘‘as soon as practicable’’ under this regulation. DOE/FE believes a 30-day timeframe, absent good cause for delay, will provide a reasonably sufficient time for authorization holders to prepare and file the written notifications with DOE/FE. C. Anticipated Administrative Benefits In this proposed interpretive rule, DOE/FE is not proposing any new requirements for applicants or authorization holders under 10 CFR part 590. Rather, DOE’s intent is to reduce administrative uncertainty and minimize regulatory burdens associated 16 ‘‘Any other natural gas export contractual agreements’’ may include, but are not limited to, heads of agreement, memoranda of understanding, letters of intent, and similar types of agreements if and when they become fully binding and effective in lieu of a definitive agreement. 17 An ‘‘export’’ occurs when the LNG is delivered to the flange of the LNG export vessel. See Freeport LNG Expansion, L.P., et al., DOE/FE Order No. 3282, FE Docket No. 10–161–LNG, Order Conditionally Granting Long-Term, Multi-Contract Authorization to Export Liquefied Natural Gas by Vessel from the Freeport LNG Terminal on Quintana Island, Texas, to Non-Free Trade Agreement Nations, at 10 n.28 (May 17, 2003) (citation omitted).

Public Comment Procedures Interested persons are invited to participate in this proceeding by submitting data, views, or arguments. Written comments should be submitted to the address, and in the form, indicated in the ADDRESSES section of this proposed rule. To help DOE review the comments, interested persons are asked to refer to specific proposed provisions, if possible.

FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at The Red River Airport, Coushatta, LA. This action would enhance safety and the management of IFR operations at the airport. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is noncontroversial 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 proposed 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.

II. Background EPA granted full approval of the Kansas Operating Permit Program effective February 29, 1996. See 61 FR 2938. Under title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 70.9(a) and (b), an approved state’s title V operating permits program must require that the owners or operators of part 70 sources pay annual fees, or the equivalent over some other period, that are sufficient to cover the permit program costs and ensure that any fee required under 40 CFR 70.9 is used solely for permit program costs. The fee schedule must result in the collection and retention of revenues sufficient to cover the permit program implementation and oversight costs. Kansas Statutes Annotated (KSA) 65– 3024 establishes the Air Quality Fee Fund and authorizes the Secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) to fix, charge and collect annual emissions fees in amounts necessary to administer the Kansas Air Quality Act. The Secretary also has the authority to periodically increase or decrease such fees, as needed. Kansas has determined that it has experienced shortfalls in its title V annual emission fee revenues in recent years, due to emission reductions at major facilities. It has determined that fee adjustments are needed to offset the effect of declining revenues and to maintain the Kansas Air Quality program overall. The proposed increases in fees will aid in offsetting the effect of declining revenue and in maintaining the title V fee schedule and the Kansas Air Quality program overall. Projections of program needs for fiscal year 2019 and beyond indicate that resources adequate for effective implementation of the program will not be available without the proposed amendments. The amendments are needed to update the Class I Operating Permit fee schedule to bring in sufficient revenue to adequately administer the Kansas Air Quality Act, specifically to adequately administer the Class I Operating Permit program. Thus, Kansas has submitted this program revision for review and action by the EPA. E:\FR\FM\19DEP1.SGM 19DEP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described 
in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, 
the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it would establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at The Red River Airport, Coushatta, LA, in support 
of standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the 
airport.

Comments Invited

    Interested parties are invited to participate in this proposed 
rulemaking by submitting such written data, views, or arguments, as 
they may desire. Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the 
views and suggestions presented are particularly helpful in developing 
reasoned regulatory decisions on the proposal. Comments are 
specifically invited on the overall regulatory, aeronautical, economic, 
environmental, and energy-related aspects of the proposal. 
Communications should identify both docket numbers and be submitted in 
triplicate to the address listed above. Commenters wishing the FAA to 
acknowledge receipt of their comments on this notice must submit with

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective 
September 15, 2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at The Red River Airport, 
Coushatta, LA. This action would enhance safety and the management of 
IFR operations at the airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 
2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 proposed 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.
