                              (Order No. 597)

Extension of Authority and Expansion With Restrictions Subzones 122D, 122E,
                          122H; Corpus Christi, TX

                         Friday, September 4, 1992

Pursuant to its authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18,
1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
Regulations (15 CFR part 400), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) 
adopts the following Resolution and Order:

Whereas, on September 5, 1985, the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board designated
the Port of Corpus Christi Authority (the Port), as grantee of FTZ 122, 
under a zone plan which included conditional approval for foreign-trade 
subzone status at the manufacturing plants of Aker Gulf Marine (formerly 
Gulf Marine Fabricators, Inc.) (SZ 122D), Berry Contracting, Inc. (SZ 122E),
and Hitox Corporation of America (SZ 122H) in the Corpus Christi, Texas, 
area (Board Order 310, 50 FR 38020, 9/19/85);

Whereas, the foregoing subzones were approved subject to restrictions,
including a five-year time restriction, which has been extended (to 9/5/92);

Whereas, the Port has made application (three applications were
consolidated as Docket 50-91, filed 9-5-91, 56 FR 46411, 9-12-91) to the
Board requesting an indefinite extension of authority and removal of
certain restrictions applicable to Subzones 122D, 122E, and 122H, and
expansion of Subzones 122E and 122H, including expansion of zone
manufacturing authority for Subzone 122H;

Whereas, notice of said application has been given in the Federal Register
and public comment has been invited;

Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the
Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that the proposal would be in
the public interest provided that approval is subject to the standard
restrictions on steel mill products;

Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders that the authority for Subzones
122D, 122E and 122H is extended, that Subzones 122E and 122H are expanded
and that certain restrictions (except those on steel mill products) are
removed in accordance with the consolidated application filed September 5,
1991, subject to restrictions requiring that privileged foreign status (19
CFR 14641) shall be elected on any foreign steel mill products used in the
manufacture of finished products not classified as vessels, and requiring
that foreign steel mill products used in the manufacture of products
classified as vessels shall be subject to the standard shipyard restriction
as contained in Board Order 539 (56 FR 56627, 11-6-91), and subject to the
Act and the Board's Regulations (as revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10/8/91),
including  400.28.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 26th day of August, 1992, pursuant to Order
of the Board.

Francis J. Sailer,

Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, 
Chairman, Committee of Alternates,
