FINDINGS AND VIEWS CONCERNING THE EXEMPTION OF KEROJET FUELS FROM THE MANDATORY PETROLEUM ALLOCATION AND PRICE REGULATIONS

Presented are DOE's findings and views with respect to the exemption of kerosene-base jet fuel (kerojet) from the Mandatory Petroleum Allocation and Price Regulations (10 CFR, Parts 210, 211, and 212) a section of which requires that any amendment submitted to the Congress for the purpose of exempting a petroleum product or refined product category from regulation be supported with certain findings and DOE views on a variety of matters related to the exemption. Section 102 of the Energy Conservation and Production Act (ECPA), Public Law 94-385, requires separate submissions to the Congress of energy actions exempting a refined product category from both price and allocation provisions of DOE regulations, but it does permit the DOE to submit concurrently separate energy actions proposing price and allocation exemptions. Based on an analysis of historic and projected supply, demand, and price trends, the DOE has concluded that allocation and price controls are no longer necessary for kerojet fuel and that exemption of kerojet fuel will be consistent with the attainment, to the maximum extent practicable, of the objectives specified in Section 4 (b) (1) of the EPAA.
