If you anticipate difficulty in submitting comments within that VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:13 Apr 06, 2009 Jkt 217001 period, contact the person listed below as soon as possible. ADDRESSES: Send comments to Neal Davis of EIA. To ensure receipt of the comments by the due date, submission by fax (202–586–9753) or e-mail (neal.davis@eia.doe.gov) is recommended. Mr. Davis’ mailing address is Energy Information Administration (EI 62), Financial Analysis Team, Forrestal Building, U.S. Department of Energy, 1000 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20585. Alternatively, Mr. Davis may be contacted by telephone at (202) 586–6581. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of any forms and instructions for the Financial Reporting System should be directed to Mr. Davis at the address listed above. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background II. Current Actions III. Request for Comments I. Background The Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974 (15 U.S.C. 761 et seq.) and the DOE Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7101 et seq.) require the EIA to carry out a centralized, comprehensive, and unified energy information program. This program collects, evaluates, assembles, analyzes, and disseminates information on energy resource reserves, production, demand, technology, and related economic and statistical information. This information is used to assess the adequacy of energy resources to meet near and longer term domestic demands. The EIA, as part of its effort to comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.), provides the general public and other Federal agencies with opportunities to comment on collections of information conducted by or in conjunction with the EIA. Also, the EIA will later seek approval for this collection by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under Section 3507(a) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Under Public Law 95–91, section 205(h), the Administrator of the EIA is required to ‘‘identify and designate’’ the major energy companies who must annually file Form EIA–28 to ensure that the data collected provide ‘‘a statistically accurate profile of each line of commerce in the energy industry in the United States.’’ Data collected on Form EIA–28 are published and used in analyses of the energy industry. U.S. major energy companies report financial and operating information to PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the FRS survey each year on a consolidated corporate level, by individual lines of business, by major functions within each line of business, and by various geographic regions. From this information, EIA produces the annual publication Performance Profiles of Major Energy Producers. The data are also used for analyses and inquiries concerning earnings, profitability, investments, production and refining costs, reserve growth, and other issues related to the financial performance of major energy producers. Please refer to the proposed forms and instructions for more information about the purpose, who must report, when to report, where to submit, the elements to be reported, detailed instructions, provisions for confidentiality, and uses (including possible nonstatistical uses) of the information. For instructions on obtaining materials, see the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. II. Current Actions EIA is proposing a three-year extension with changes to the previously approved Form EIA–28 for the FRS survey to be conducted in 2010 collecting information for 2009. EIA is proposing the following changes to the form: • Expand the balance sheet information requested for property, plant, and equipment (PP&E), and investments and advances to unconsolidated affiliates beyond additions to include other changes, such as reclassifications and impairments; • Reduce the scope of domestic information collected on the downstream natural gas and electric power operations of the major energy companies; • Recategorize some downstream natural gas business operations to more closely align the survey with industry practices; and • Add coverage of foreign operations for petroleum purchases and sales of raw materials and refined products, and for downstream natural gas operating expenses. Schedule 5120 ‘‘Selected Consolidating Balance Sheet and Financial Data’’ will be expanded to include collection of other changes to PP&E and investments and advances to unconsolidated affiliates, by line of business. Many of the questions for the downstream natural gas and electric power lines of business require detailed information from the operational units of the FRS respondent companies, and are more difficult to obtain. Data for several items are only provided by one or two companies. Consequently, the E:\FR\FM\07APN1.SGM 07APN1
