Dear Phase 2 RFG Advisory Committee, Subcommittees, and
Interested Parties:

     Enclosed is the Final Meeting Summary for the Phase 2
Reformulated Gasoline (RFG) Transition Subcommittee Meeting held
on October 5, 1994.  Also enclosed, as attachments, are the
materials which were distributed and discussed during the
meeting.  A draft version of the summary was provided to the
Transition Subcommittee Members for their review and comment one
week prior to the November 16, 1994 Transition Subcommittee
meeting.  Because there were no comments received either prior to
or during this last meeting the draft is finalized as proposed.

     If you should have any questions about this Final Meeting
Summary, please contact 
Greg Allen, Transition Subcommittee Secretary, at (916) 327-5599.


                              Sincerely,



                              Susan Brown

I.   Introduction

     The Phase 2 Reformulated Gasoline Transition Subcommittee
     held a meeting on October 5, 1994 in Sacramento at 2020 L
     Street,  from 8:30 am to 10:30 am.

     The key issues discussed include:

     o    RFG Balance
     o    CEC/ARB Joint RFG Survey 
     o    Confidentiality and Antitrust Issues

     Inquires about this meeting summary should be directed to
     Mr. Greg Allen, 
     Transition Subcommittee Secretary, at (916) 327-5599.

II.  California RFG Balance

     Mr. Gordon Schremp, of the California Energy Commission
     (CEC), made a presentation summarizing their draft white
     paper entitled "California RFG Balance" (attached).  The
     draft paper addresses estimated demand, estimated supply,
     and reserve supply capacities.  The presentation was
     followed by a brief discussion, with various subcommittee
     members asking questions regarding points of clarification. 
     As a result, Mr. Schremp will be clarifying and correcting
     portions of the white paper.

III. CEC/ARB Joint RFG Survey

     On March 1, 1994, the initial CEC/ARB Joint RFG Survey was
     mailed to all refineries in California (attached).  An
     accurate estimate of future supply depends on obtaining the
     completed surveys from all potential suppliers.  Not all
     refineries, however, have 
-FIN                               AL-

                                  
                                  


     completed and returned the survey forms distributed in
     March.  Several subcommittee members suggested that the lack
     of response was partially because the survey did not contain
     a due date.

     Subcommittee members also questioned whether the existing
     survey form would elicit the information needed for a
     comprehensive evaluation of California's future RFG balance. 
     Suggestions were made on modifications which would improve
     the overall effectiveness of the survey.

     As a result of these discussions, the CEC will modify the
     survey form and redistribute it with clarified instructions
     and a due date identified.

III. Confidentiality and Antitrust Issues

     A draft set of general principals regarding (1) information
     designated confidential and (2) antitrust considerations was
     distributed at the beginning of the meeting to all
     subcommittee members present (attached).  After the mid-
     meeting break the subcommittee discussion leader solicited
     comments on this item, however, received none.
