Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 89 / Wednesday, May 9, 2007 / Notices Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-Hour Cost’’ Burden: We have identified two paperwork ‘‘non-hour cost’’ burdens associated with this collection of information (see Hour and Fee Burden table). One is a $1,200 simple fee and the other is a $3,550 complex fee for a total of $1,154,700. Simple fee applications are to temporarily reroute production (for a duration not to exceed six months); production tests prior to pipeline construction; departures related to meter proving, well testing, or sampling frequency. Complex fee applications are for creations of new facility measurement points (FMPs); association of leases or units with existing FMPs; inclusion of production from additional structures; meter updates which add buy-back gas meters or pigging meters; other applications which request deviations from the approved allocation procedures. The application filing fees are required to recover the Federal Government’s processing costs. We have not identified any other ‘‘non-hour cost’’ burdens associated with this collection of information. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated to respond. Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) requires each agency ‘‘* * * to provide notice * * * and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information * * *.’’ Agencies must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. To comply with the public consultation process, on October 3, 2006, we published a Federal Register notice (71 FR 58429) announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day comment period. In VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:12 May 08, 2007 Jkt 211001 addition, § 250.199 provides the OMB control number for the information collection requirements imposed by the 30 CFR 250 regulations. The regulation also informs the public that they may comment at any time on the collections of information and provides the address to which they should send comments. We received one comment in response to these efforts, but it was not germane to the paperwork requirements. If you wish to comment in response to this notice, you may send your comments to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this notice. OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by June 8, 2007. Public Comment Procedures: The MMS’s practice is to make comments, including names and addresses of respondents, available for public review. If you wish your name and/or address to be withheld, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comment. The MMS will honor the request to the extent allowable by the law; however, anonymous comments will not be considered. There may be circumstances in which we would withhold from the record a respondent’s identity, as allowable by the law. If you wish us to withhold your name and/or address, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comment. In addition, you must present a rationale for withholding this information. This rationale must demonstrate that disclosure ‘‘would constitute an unwarranted invasion of privacy.’’ Unsupported assertions will not meet this burden. In the absence of exceptional, documentable circumstances, this information will be released. All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, will be made available for public inspection in their entirety.
