Foreign-Trade Zone 84, Harris County, TX (Houston POE); Amendment of Zone
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Port of Houston Authority (PHA), grantee of Foreign-Trade
Zone 84, requesting an amendment to its zone plan to add a petroleum and 
chemical storage and blending facility in Harris County, Texas, within the
Houston Customs port of entry. The application was submitted pursuant to 
the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 USC 81a-81u),
and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR 400). It was formally filed on 
June 9, 1986.  
   PHA received authority from the Board to establish a multi-site foreign-
trade zone in Harris County, Texas, on July 15, 1983 (Board Order 214, 48 
FR 34792, August 1, 1983. While 5 PHA sites were approved as conventional 
ones, the remaining sites were approved for 5 years, subject to special 
conditions. The zone plan was amended in 1985 to delete 8 and add 10 
non-PHA sites subject to the same time limitation and conditions as the 
original ones (Board Order 303, 50 FR 20252). This amendment would also be
subject to the same time limitation and conditions as the other non-PHA 
   The proposed amendment would involve adding to the zone the public 
petroleum product and chemical storage terminal and blending facilities of
Intercontinental Terminals Company, located on a 125-acre parcel at Mile 
Point 35.4 on the Houston Ship Channel in the Deer Park area. With a 4 
million barrel capacity, the facility stores and blends industrial 
chemicals, petrochemicals, motor fuels, and blendstocks. The company would
use zone procedures for motor fuel blending for export only. 
   In accordance with the regulations, an examiners committee has been 
appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of: John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, Foreign-
Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; 
Donald Gough, Deputy Assistant Regional Commissioner, U.S. Customs Service,

Gordon M. Clarke, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Galveston,
P.O. Box 1229, Galveston, TX 77553.
