Plains Petroleum Operating Co. Lakewood, CO; Revised 
Determination on Reconsideration

    On March 7, 1994, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for workers and 
former workers of the subject firm in Lakewood, Colorado. This notice 
will soon be published in the Federal Register.
    Investigation findings show that Lakewood is the central office of 
the Plains Operating Company which has district offices in Midland, 
Texas; Larkin, Kansas and Gillette, Wyoming. The findings show 
significant worker separations in 1992 and 1993.
    Findings on reconsideration show that a substantial portion of 
Plains Operating Company's revenues come from crude oil. Other findings 
show that a substantial portion of the Lakewood staff provide support 
for the activities at Midland, Texas which experienced a decline in its 
crude oil revenues. The workers at Midland, Texas were certified for 
trade adjustment assistance on December 27, 1993 under petition TA-W-
28,968. Midland's revenues accounted for a substantial portion of 
Lakewood's total revenues in 1993.


    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, it is concluded that increased imports of articles 
like or directly competitive with crude oil produced at the Plains 
Petroleum Operating Company in Midland, Texas contributed importantly 
to the decline in sales or production and to the total or partial 
separation of workers at the Lakewood, Colorado facility of Plains 
Petroleum Operating Company. In accordance with the provisions of the 
Trade Act of 1974, I make the following revised determination:

    All workers of Plains Petroleum Operating Company in Lakewood, 
Colorado who became totally or partially separated from employment 
on or after November 8, 1992 are eligible to apply for adjustment 
assistance under section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 22nd day of March 1994.
Stephen A. Wandner,
Deputy Director, Office of Legislation and Actuarial Services, 
Unemployment Insurance Service.
