ACTION: Notice of major portion prices for calendar year 2003. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Final regulations for valuing gas produced from Indian leases, published on August 10, 1999, require MMS to determine major portion values and notify industry by publishing the Regulations for Indian Leases,’’ (64 FR 43506) with an effective date of January 1, 2000. The gas regulations apply to all gas production from Indian (tribal or allotted) oil and gas leases, except leases on the Osage Indian Reservation. The rule requires that MMS publish major portion prices for each designated area not associated with an index zone for each production month beginning January 2000, along with a due date for additional royalty payments. See 30 CFR 206.174(a)(4)(ii) (2004). If additional royalties are due based on a published major portion price, the lessee must submit an amended Form MMS–2014, Report of Sales and Royalty Remittance, to MMS by the due date. If additional royalties are not paid by the due date, late payment interest under 30 CFR 218.54 (2004) will accrue from the due date until payment is made and an amended Form MMS–2014 is received. The table below lists the major portion prices for all designated areas not associated with an index zone. The due date is May 31, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 10, 1999, MMS published a final 
rule titled ``Amendments to Gas Valuation Regulations for Indian 
Leases,'' (64 FR 43506) with an effective date of January 1, 2000. The 
gas regulations apply to all gas production from Indian (tribal or 
allotted) oil and gas leases, except leases on the Osage Indian 
Reservation.
    The rule requires that MMS publish major portion prices for each 
designated area not associated with an index zone for each production 
month beginning January 2000, along with a due date for additional 
royalty payments. See 30 CFR 206.174(a)(4)(ii) (2004). If additional 
royalties are due based on a published major portion price, the lessee 
must submit an amended Form MMS-2014, Report of Sales and Royalty 
Remittance, to MMS by the due date. If additional royalties are not 
paid by the due date, late payment interest under 30 CFR 218.54 (2004) 
will accrue from the due date until payment is made and an amended Form 
MMS-2014 is received. The table below lists the major portion prices 
for all designated areas not associated with an index zone. The due 
date is May 31, 2005.
