AGENCY: Notice of major portion prices for calendar year 2004. ACTION: 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) (2005). 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 (2005), will accrue using the Internal Revenue Service underpayment rate (26 CFR 6621(a)(2)) 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 April 30, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Whereas the Congress of the United States has declared it to be a national policy to preserve for the public use historical sites, buildings, and objects of national significance for the inspiration and benefit of the people of the United States, and whereas the Congress has recognized that: (1) Dr. Carter G. Woodson, cognizant of the widespread ignorance and scanty information concerning the history of African Americans, founded on September 9, 1915, the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, since renamed the Association for the Study of African-American Life and History. (2) The Association was founded in particular to counter racist propaganda alleging black inferiority and the pervasive influence of Jim Crow prevalent at the time. (3) The mission of the Association was and continues to be educating the American public of the contributions of Black Americans in the formation of the Nation’s history and culture. (4) Dr. Woodson dedicated nearly his entire adult life to every aspect of the Association’s operations in furtherance of its mission. (5) Among the notable accomplishments of the Association under Dr. Woodson’s leadership, Negro History Week was instituted in 1926 to be celebrated annually during the second week of February. Negro History Week has since evolved into African American History Month. (6) The headquarters and center of operations of the Association was Dr. Woodson’s residence, located at 1538 Ninth Street, NW., Washington, DC. Congress, therefore, on October 24, 2000, directed a resource study of the Dr. Carter G. Woodson Home and headquarters of the Association for the Study of African-American Life and History, located at 1538 Ninth Street, NW., Washington, DC, to identify the suitability and feasibility of designating PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4.37 Oct 2004 (MMBtu) Nov 2004 (MMBtu) 4.46 Dec 2004 (MMBtu) 6.57 6.03 the Carter G.

Woodson Home National Historic Site as a unit of the National Park System by publication of a notice to that effect in the Federal Register upon the acquisition of the Carter G. Woodson Home. The Secretary was granted authority to acquire the Carter G. Woodson Home and any of three properties immediately to its north located at 1540, 1542, and 1544 Ninth Street, NW., described on the map entitled ‘‘Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site’’, numbered 876/ 82338–A and dated July 22, 2003. Dated: February 17, 2006. Gale A. Norton, Secretary of the Interior.

ACTION: Notice of major portion prices for calendar year 2004.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

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 values in the Federal 
Register. The regulations also require MMS to publish a due date for 
industry to pay additional royalty based on the major portion value. 
This notice provides the major portion values for the 12 months of 
2004. The due date to pay is April 30, 2006, after which late interest 
will accrue.

Compliance and Asset Management, MMS; telephone (303) 231-3702; FAX

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) (2005). 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 
(2005), will accrue using the Internal Revenue Service underpayment 
rate (26 CFR 6621(a)(2)) 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 April 30, 2006.
