Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 51490 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 173 / Friday, September 7, 2007 / Notices Low-stress pipelines are pipelines operating at 20 percent or less of the specified minimum yield strength of the line pipe. PHMSA does not have data on the total extent of currently unregulated hazardous liquid low-stress pipelines in the United States. To address this gap in the data and to obtain a more accurate understanding of the unregulated hazardous liquid low-stress pipelines, PHMSA is requesting OMB approval to conduct a one-time information collection survey. To the extent possible, all operators of hazardous liquid pipelines will be surveyed about low stress mileage (including interplant pipeline mileage), diameter, pipeline material, products transported, and location. In order to reach as many operators as possible, the survey will be delivered electronically to each of the companies currently operating regulated hazardous liquid pipelines. PHMSA will also attempt to reach companies that own and/or operate currently unregulated pipelines exclusively by working with industry associations to announce and distribute the survey via e-mail newsletters to members. Respondents will be able to print an electronic version of the survey and mail a hard copy, or complete the survey on-line and e-mail it. Participation in the survey is optional. Pursuant to 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, PHMSA is required to obtain OMB approval for information collections. The term ‘‘information collection’’ includes all work related to preparing and disseminating information related to this proposed information collection including: Completing paperwork, gathering information, and conducting telephone calls. PHMSA published a notice providing a 60-day period for comments on the proposed information collection in the Federal Register on June 14, 2007 (72 FR 32941), and received no comments. PHMSA is now providing an additional 30-day comment period and inviting comments on whether the proposed information collection is necessary for DOT’s proper performance. The comments may include (1) whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of DOT’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Type of Information Collection Request: New Collection. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:34 Sep 06, 2007 Jkt 211001 Respondents: 158. Frequency: This is a one-time survey. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 16 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 2,528 hours. Dated: August 31, 2007. Florence L. Hamn, Director of Regulations.
