Notice.

Notice is hereby given that the Department of State has received an application from Valero Logistics Operations, L.P. (Valero) for a Presidential permit, pursuant to Executive Order 13337 of April 30, 2004, authorizing the construction, connection, operation, and maintenance at the U.S.-Mexican border in the vicinity of Hidalgo, Texas of a liquid pipeline capable of carrying naphtha, and related pipeline facilities.

Valero is a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Texas and with its principal office located in San Antonio, Texas.

It is anticipated that initial contract deliveries of naphtha to Edinburg will be 24,000 barrels (one million gallons) per month.

As required by E.O. 13337, the Department of State is circulating this application to concerned federal agencies for comment.
