[Order No. 721]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Hydril Company (Inc.),
(Oil Field Equipment); Houston, TX

    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 Port of Houston Authority, grantee
of Foreign-Trade Zone 84, for authorization for special-purpose subzone
status primarily for export activity at the oil field equipment
manufacturing facilities of the Hydril Company (Inc.), in Houston,
Texas, was filed by the Board on March 24, 1994, and notice inviting
public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 12-94, 59
FR 15372, 4-1-94); and,
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act
and 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 84M) at the plant sites of the Hydril Company (Inc.),
in Houston, Texas, at the locations described in the application,
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including
Sec. 400.28, and subject to a restriction requiring that privileged
foreign status (19 CFR 146.41) shall be elected on all foreign
merchandise admitted to the subzone, as indicated in the application.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 23rd day of December 1994.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
