June 17, 1977 Clarification of our Determination that the "Emission Offset" Ruling (41 FR 55525) Does Not Apply to FEA's Choctaw Salt Dome project 27.2The emission offset policy does not apply to FEA's Choctaw Salt Dome project's emissions from tanker ballasting and large loading associated with the storage and withdrawal from storage of crude oil. This determination is based on the fact that such emissions where to be temporary and would occur only during the fill phase of the project. If these emissions had continued over the life of the project, and generally would be the case with storage facilities associated with a new marine terminal or a new refinery, the Project would have been subject to the interpretive Ruling.
