The Coast Guard establishes temporary safety zones in the navigable waters, from surface to seabed, of the Port of Dutch Harbor, Alaska, and the adjacent U.S. territorial sea from June 15, 2012, through July 31, 2012. The temporary safety zones will encompass the navigable waters within a 25-yard radius of moored or anchored Shell offshore exploration or support vessels, and the navigable waters within a 100-yard radius of underway Shell offshore exploration or support vessels.
