Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
Polysar received a Presidential Permit in 1986 to construct Lines 16, 18 and 19. and transport natural gas liquids (NGLs), propylene, and ethylene between the United States and Canada. Lines 16, 18 and 19 each consist of approximately 1,350 feet of pipeline extending from a block valve site in St. Clair County, Michigan near the City of Marysville to the international border with Canada. NOVA Inc. anticipates no change in the operations of Lines 16, 18 and 19 relative to those that were authorized by the 1986 Presidential Permit.
Under E.O. 13337 the Secretary of State is designated and empowered to receive all applications for Presidential Permits for the construction, connection, operation, or maintenance at the borders of the United States, of facilities for the exportation or importation of liquid petroleum, petroleum products, or other non-gaseous fuels to or from a foreign country. The Department of State is circulating this application to concerned federal agencies for comment. The Department of State has the responsibility to determine whether issuance of a new Presidential Permit reflecting the change in ownership or control of Lines 16, 18, and 19 would be in the U.S. national interest.
