The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on April 21, 2020. The applicant indicates that it will be submitting a separate application for FTZ designation at the company’s facility under FTZ 116. The facility, which is currently undergoing expansion, will be used for liquified natural gas processing. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status material and specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Golden Pass LNG from customs duty payments on the foreignstatus material used in export production. On its domestic sales, for VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:45 May 06, 2020 Jkt 250001 the foreign-status material noted below, Golden Pass LNG would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to liquified natural gas and stabilized gas condensate (duty rate ranges from dutyfree to 10.5 cents/barrel). Golden Pass LNG would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status material which becomes scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The material sourced from abroad is gaseous natural gas (duty-free). The request indicates that gaseous natural gas is subject to special duties under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of origin. The applicable Section 301 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). Public comment is invited from interested parties.
