Background In order to fulfill its responsibilities under the Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93– 275) and the Department of Energy Organization Act (Pub. L. 95–91), the Energy Information Administration (EIA) is obliged to carry out a central, comprehensive, and unified energy data and information program. As part of this program, EIA collects, evaluates, assembles, analyzes, and disseminates data and information related to energy resource reserves, production, demand, and technology, and related economic and statistical information relevant to the adequacy of energy resources to meet demands in the near and longer term future for the Nation’s economic and social needs. EIA must adapt its energy data and information program to reflect changing energy markets. To do this, EIA must work within a budget that has not increased at levels necessary to fully maintain a high quality information program, including increased activities in select areas (e.g., a new weekly underground gas storage survey initiated in 2002, a new monthly natural gas production survey initiated in 2005, and upcoming requirements for additional information on renewable transportation fuels). While EIA has undertaken activities to improve efficiency (e.g., increased collection of information using the Internet), the efficiency savings have not completely offset additional resources required to satisfy the increasing information demands on EIA. As a result EIA has identified selected surveys and programs that must be eliminated to ensure the overall success of EIA’s high quality energy data and information program. In 2004, EIA eliminated Form EIA–412, ‘‘Annual Electric Industry Financial Report.’’ After collection of data for July 2006, EIA will discontinue Forms EIA–182 and EIA–856. The Form EIA–182, ‘‘Domestic Crude Oil First Purchase Report,’’ is designed to collect data on both the average cost and volume associated with the physical and financial transfer of domestic crude oil off the property on which it was produced. The monthly reported data represent the initial market value and volume of domestic crude oil production. The primary statistic is the weighted average wellhead price for selected domestic VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:54 Mar 22, 2006 Jkt 208001 crude oil streams aggregated by State. First purchase volumes are used in generating estimates of domestic crude oil production and in reviewing the supply, demand, quality, and price changes of crude oil. The Form EIA–856, ‘‘Monthly Foreign Crude Oil Acquisition Report,’’ is used to collect data on the cost and quantities of foreign crude oil acquired for importation into the United States, including U.S. territories and possessions. Data are used by the Department of Energy, the International Energy Agency, other Federal agencies, and industry analysts for forecasting and analytical purposes. II.

I. Background

    In order to fulfill its responsibilities under the Federal Energy 
Administration Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93-275) and the Department of 
Energy Organization Act (Pub. L. 95-91), the Energy Information 
Administration (EIA) is obliged to carry out a central, comprehensive, 
and unified energy data and information program. As part of this 
program, EIA collects, evaluates, assembles, analyzes, and disseminates 
data and information related to energy resource reserves, production, 
demand, and technology, and related economic and statistical 
information relevant to the adequacy of energy resources to meet 
demands in the near and longer term future for the Nation's economic 
and social needs.
    EIA must adapt its energy data and information program to reflect 
changing energy markets. To do this, EIA must work within a budget that 
has not increased at levels necessary to fully maintain a high quality 
information program, including increased activities in select areas 
(e.g., a new weekly underground gas storage survey initiated in 2002, a 
new monthly natural gas production survey initiated in 2005, and 
upcoming requirements for additional information on renewable 
transportation fuels). While EIA has undertaken activities to improve 
efficiency (e.g., increased collection of information using the 
Internet), the efficiency savings have not completely offset additional 
resources required to satisfy the increasing information demands on 
EIA. As a result EIA has identified selected surveys and programs that 
must be eliminated to ensure the overall success of EIA's high quality 
energy data and information program. In 2004, EIA eliminated Form EIA-
412, ``Annual Electric Industry Financial Report.'' After collection of 
data for July 2006, EIA will discontinue Forms EIA-182 and EIA-856.
    The Form EIA-182, ``Domestic Crude Oil First Purchase Report,'' is 
designed to collect data on both the average cost and volume associated 
with the physical and financial transfer of domestic crude oil off the 
property on which it was produced. The monthly reported data represent 
the initial market value and volume of domestic crude oil production. 
The primary statistic is the weighted average wellhead price for 
selected domestic crude oil streams aggregated by State. First purchase 
volumes are used in generating estimates of domestic crude oil 
production and in reviewing the supply, demand, quality, and price 
changes of crude oil.
    The Form EIA-856, ``Monthly Foreign Crude Oil Acquisition Report,'' 
is used to collect data on the cost and quantities of foreign crude oil 
acquired for importation into the United States, including U.S. 
territories and possessions. Data are used by the Department of Energy, 
the International Energy Agency, other Federal agencies, and industry 
analysts for forecasting and analytical purposes.

II. Current Actions

    EIA will eliminate the surveys, Forms EIA-182, ``Domestic Crude Oil 
First Purchase Report,'' and EIA-856, ``Monthly Foreign Crude Oil 
Acquisition Report,'' effective after the July 2006 reference period.
