                              (Order No. 656)

    Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Flowline Alaska (Energy Pipe
                         Processing), Fairbanks, AK

                         Monday, September 27, 1993

Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 
1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following Order:

Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the United
States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for other 
purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act), the Foreign-Trade
Zones Board (the Board) is authorized to grant to qualified corporations 
the privilege of establishing foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to U.S. 
Customs ports of entry;

Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR part 400) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved;

Whereas, an application from the Fairbanks Industrial Development
Corporation, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 195, for authority to establish
a special-purpose subzone for the energy pipeline insulation plant of
Flowline Alaska, in Fairbanks, Alaska, was filed by the Board on April 7,
1992, and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register
(FTZ Docket 9-92, 57 FR 15052, 4-24-92); and,

Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act and the
Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the application is
in the public interest;

Now, therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
(Subzone 195A) at the Flowline Alaska plant in Fairbanks, Alaska, at the
location described in the application, subject to the FTZ Act and the
Board's regulations, including 400.28. All foreign merchandise would be
admitted into the subzone in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41), as
indicated in the application.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 16th day of September, 1993.

Joseph A. Spetrini,

Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Chairman,
