Maritime Administration News were built in San Diego, with the aid of construc- tion-differential subsidy.

In its application, Mormac notes the vessels are suitable primarily for the carriage of petroleum products. It hopes to seek employment on the spot market in the domestic trade for the Mormacstar after December 9, 1995 and for the Mormacsun after June 22, 1996, possibly moving petroleum products from the U.S. gulf or the west coast. The two vessels are well equipped and maintained, and in capacity, speed, and condition they will be well suited to the proposed trade, according to Mormac.

The application, assigned Docket S-924, is sched- uled for publication in the Federal Register.
