by including an additional private site for the petroleum and chemical 
storage and blending facilities of Oiltanking of Texas, Inc., located in 
Harris County, Texas, within the Houston Customs port of entry; 
   Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on July 14, 1987, and 
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on July 
23, 1987 (FTZ Doc. 7-87, 52 FR 27696); 
   Whereas, an examiners committee has investigated the application in 
accordance with the Board's regulations and recommends conditional approval; 

   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations would be satisfied if 
approval is given subject to the conditions stated below; 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders: 
   That the Grantee is authorized to amend its zone plan in accordance with
the application filed July 14, 1987, subject to the following conditions:  
   1. Operations at this site shall be subject to the restrictions 
applicable to FTZ 84 by virtue of Board Order 214 (7/15/83).

   The Grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior to the 
commencement of any manufacturing or blending operation not specifically
