Notice of Receipt of an Application by Magellan Pipeline Company, L.P., for Issuance of a Presidential Permit To Operate and Maintain Existing Pipeline Facilities on the Border of the United States and Mexico
Document Number: 2013-25009
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-10-24
Agency: Department of State
Notice is hereby given that the Department of State (DOS) has received from Magellan Pipeline Company, L.P. (``Magellan'') notice that it has acquired the rights to operate and maintain pipeline facilities permitted under a 1995 Presidential Permit issued to Chevron Pipeline Company (``Chevron''). Magellan requests that a new or amended Presidential Permit be issued to it with respect to the pipeline facilities. Magellan is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Magellan Midstream Partners, L. P. (``MMP'') and owns and operates a lengthy pipeline for the transportation of refined petroleum products that extends into 14 states along the Gulf Coast and through the middle part of the United States. The permitted facilities consist of existing 2.75-mile 8.625-inch carbon steel pipelines that extend from El Paso, Texas to the U.S. boundary with Mexico. Through corporate transactions, Chevron assigned the permit to Plains Pipeline L.P. (Plains). On July 1, 2013, Plains assigned its rights to the 1995 permit to NMPL LLC which was subsequently merged into Magellan. Magellan affirms that the operation and maintenance of the permitted facilities authorized by the 1995 Permit will remain substantially the same, and it is not seeking authorization for new construction or a change in operations. Under E.O. 13337 the Secretary of State is designated and empowered to receive all applications for Presidential Permits for the construction, connection, operation, or maintenance at the borders of the United States, of facilities for the exportation or importation of liquid petroleum, petroleum products, or other fuels (except natural gas) to or from a foreign country. The Department of State is circulating this application to concerned federal agencies for comment. The Department of State has the responsibility to determine whether issuance of a new or amended Presidential Permit in light of Magellan's acquisition of the pipeline facilities would be in the U.S. national interest.

Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental Scientific Affairs; Climate Action Report
Document Number: 2013-23475
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-09-26
Agency: Department of State
The purpose of this announcement is to notify interested members of the public of the opportunity to submit comments to the draft 2014 Climate Action Report (CAR) on U.S. climate change actions. This draft CAR consists of two documents, the National Communication and the Biennial Report, that respond to reporting requirements under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The document contains the sixth National Communication, which is provided in accordance with Articles 4.2 and 12 of the UNFCCC and accompanying decisions. The draft CAR also includes the Biennial Report, which summarizes major actions taken to address climate change, covering the period up to 2020, and contains additional reporting information as specified in decisions 1/CP.16, 2/CP.17 (Annex I), and 19/CP.18. The United States submitted the first U.S. CAR to the UNFCCC Secretariat in 1994, and subsequent reports in 1997, 2002, 2006, and 2010. These documents set out major actions the U.S. government is taking at the federal level, highlight examples of state and local actions, and outline U.S. efforts to assist other countries in addressing climate change. Each document meets specific UN reporting requirements, resulting in overlap between the documents. This report reflects the U.S. Government commitment to the UNFCCC to communicate U.S. actions and policies addressing climate change transparently. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for instructions on accessing the electronic version of the report, file format requirements for submitting comments, and other information about electronic filing.
