These regulations apply to existing facilities and new facilities that are major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) and that transport or store natural gas prior to entering the pipeline to a local distribution company or to a final end user (if there is no local distribution company). In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 15 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Respondents/Affected Entities: Owners or operators of natural gas transmission and storage facilities. Estimated Number of Respondents: 832. Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 753. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $61,085 in annual labor costs, exclusive of $0 for both annualized capital/startup and O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 4 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens.
