DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AB92 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Deepwater Ports 

The Coast Guard has proposed revisions to its regulations for the licensing, construction, design, equipment, and operation of deepwater ports. Deepwater ports are offshore fixed or floating structures, other than vessels, used as ports or terminals for the import or export of oil and natural gas. The revisions would provide additional information, clarify existing regulations, provide additional regulatory flexibility, and add new requirements to ensure safety. The rulemaking would not affect the license of any existing deepwater port, nor would it result in the licensing of any new deepwater port. The proposed rule furthers the Coast Guard's maritime safety and stewardship missions.
