SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Background and Purpose
    The Coast Guard Sector San Juan and New Fortress Energy will be
hosting public meetings on July 26, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.,
and from 5:00 p.m. to 7 p.m., for the general public to provide
comments regarding the proposed adjustment to the current safety zone
established under 33 CFR 165.754, ``Safety Zone: San Juan Harbor, San
Juan, PR''.
    On Dec. 12, 2017, the U.S. Coast Guard received a Letter of Intent
and Waterway Suitability Assessment from New Fortress Energy to
construct and operate the required infrastructure for offloading and
transferring liquefied natural gas at the Army Terminal Turning Basin
in San Juan, Puerto Rico. After reviewing New Fortress Energy's request
and providing recommendations, on September 26, 2018, the Coast Guard
Sector San Juan determined the Port of San Juan is suitable for the
proposed operation.
    These public meetings will allow attendees to submit comments on
the proposed safety zone adjustment. The proposed amendment is intended
to address the operation of LNG gas carriers and add the new facility
within the San Juan Harbor, San Juan, PR.
    We encourage you to participate by submitting comments either
verbally at the meeting or in writing. If you bring written comments to
the meeting, you may submit them to Coast Guard personnel specified at
the meeting to receive written comments. These comments will be
submitted to our online public docket. All comments received will be
posted without change to https://www.regulations.gov and will include
any personal information you have provided.
    Comments submitted after the meeting must reach the Coast Guard on
or before August 4, 2019. We encourage you to submit comments through
the Federal eRulemaking Portal at https://www.regulations.gov. If your
material cannot be submitted using https://www.regulations.gov, contact
the person in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this
document for alternate instructions.
    Anyone can search the electronic form of comments received into any
of our dockets by the name of the individual submitting the comment (or
signing the comment, if submitted on behalf of an association,
business, labor union, etc.). You may review a Privacy Act notice
regarding our public dockets in the March 24, 2005, issue of the
