[Order No. 806]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; Citgo Asphalt Refinery
Company, (Oil Refinery), Gloucester County, NJ

    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 South Jersey Port Corporation,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 142, for authority to establish special-
purpose subzone status at the oil refinery of CITGO Asphalt Refinery
Company located in Gloucester County (Paulsboro area), New Jersey, was
filed by the Board on October 20, 1995, and notice inviting public
comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 63-95, 60 FR
55698, 11-2-95); and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the
examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and
Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that approval of the
application would be in the public interest if approval is subject to
the conditions listed below;
    Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a
subzone (Subzone 142B) at the CITGO Asphalt Refinery Company oil
refinery, in Gloucester County (Paulsboro area), New Jersey, at the
location described in the application, subject to the FTZ Act and the
Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28, and subject to the
following conditions:
    1. Foreign status (19 CFR Secs. 146.41, 146.42) products consumed
as fuel for the refinery shall be subject to the applicable duty rate.
    2. Privileged foreign status (19 CFR Sec. 146.41) shall be elected
on all foreign merchandise admitted to the subzone, except that non-
privileged foreign (NPF) status (19 CFR Sec. 146.42) may be elected on
refinery inputs covered under HTSUS Subheadings # 2709.00.1000 and #
2709.00.2000 which are used in the production of asphalt and certain
intermediate fuel products (examiners report, Appendix D);
    3. The authority with regard to the NPF option is initially granted
until September 30, 2000, subject to extension.
