Download as PDF 19549 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 81 / Wednesday, April 29, 2009 / Notices FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ellen Brown may be reached by telephone at (202) 502–8663, by fax at (202) 273–0873, and by e-mail at ellen.brown@ferc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FERC is requesting comments on the FERC– 567,1 Gas Pipeline Certificates: Annual Reports of System Flow Diagrams. FERC–567 is an existing data collection (OMB Control No. 1902–0005) consisting of a set of filing requirements, as contained in 18 CFR 260.8. The information from the FERC–567 is used by the Commission staff to obtain accurate data on pipeline facilities and to validate the need for new facilities proposed by pipelines in certificate applications. In modeling a pipeline applicant’s system, Commission staff utilizes the FERC–567 data to determine configuration and location of installed pipeline facilities; verify and determine the receipt and delivery points between shippers, producers and pipeline companies; determine the location of receipt and delivery points and emergency interconnections on a pipeline system; determine the location of pipeline segments, laterals and compressor stations on a pipeline system; verify pipeline segment lengths and pipeline diameters; justify the maximum allowable operating pressures and suction and discharge pressures at compressor stations; verify the installed horsepower and volumes compressed at each compressor station; determine the existing shippers and producers currently using each pipeline company; and develop and evaluate alternatives to the proposed facilities as a means to mitigate environmental impact of new pipeline construction. 18 CFR 260.8 requires each major natural gas pipeline with a system delivery capacity exceeding 100,000 Mcf per day to file, to submit by June 1 of each year, diagrams reflecting operating conditions on the pipeline’s main transmission system during the previous 12 months ended December 31. These data are physical/engineering data which are not included as part of any other data collection requirement. Action: The Commission is requesting a three-year extension of the current expiration date, with no change to the existing requirements.1 Burden Statement: Annual reporting burden for this collection is estimated as: Number of respondents annually FERC–567 ............................................................................... Number of responses per respondent Average burden hours per response Total annual burden hours 2 (1) FERC data collection (2) (3) (1) × (2) × (3) 94 3 1.714 81.28 13,095.5 pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES The estimated annual cost burden 2 to respondents is $807,747 (13,095.5 hours/2080 hours per year times $128,297 per year average per employee = $807,747). The estimated cost per respondent is $8,593. The reporting burden includes the total time, effort, or financial resources expended to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information including: (1) Reviewing instructions; (2) developing, acquiring, installing, and utilizing technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, verifying, processing, maintaining, disclosing and providing information; (3) adjusting the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; (4) training personnel to respond to a collection of information; (5) searching data sources; (6) completing and reviewing the collection of information; and (7) transmitting, or otherwise disclosing the information. The estimate of cost for respondents is based upon salaries for professional and clerical support, as well as direct and indirect overhead costs. Direct costs include all costs directly attributable to providing this information, such as administrative costs and the cost for information technology. Indirect or overhead costs are costs incurred by an organization in support of its mission. These costs apply to activities which benefit the whole organization, rather than any one particular function or activity. Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, 1 FERC–567 was formerly known as ‘‘Gas Pipeline Certificates: Annual Reports of System Flow Diagrams and System Capacity’’. The capacity reporting requirements under 18 CFR 284.13 had been inadvertently included under both the FERC– 567 and the FERC–549B (‘‘Gas Pipeline Rates: Capacity Information’’; OMB Control No. 1902– 0169). To correct the inadvertent ‘double-counting’, the capacity reporting requirements under 18 CFR 284.13 are removed from FERC–567, and remain a part of FERC–549B for the purpose of OMB clearance. FERC–549B is not a subject of this Notice. 2 The burden and cost figures may not be exact, due to rounding.

Background II. Current Actions III. Request for Comments I. Background The Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93–275, 15 U.S.C. 761 et seq.) and the DOE Organization Act (Pub. L. 95–91, 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 (Pub. L. 104–13, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), provides the general public and other Federal agencies with opportunities to comment on collections of energy information conducted by or in conjunction with the EIA. Any comments received help the EIA to prepare data requests that maximize the utility of the information collected, and to assess the impact of collection requirements on the public. Also, the EIA will later seek approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under Section 3507(a) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The EIA collects information about the uranium fuel cycle for use by VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:48 Apr 28, 2009 Jkt 217001 government and private sector analysts. The survey information is disseminated in a variety of electronic products and files. For details on the EIA uranium program, please visit the nuclear page of the EIA Internet site at http:// www.eia.doe.gov/fuelnuclear.html. II. Current Actions The EIA proposes the following changes: For the EIA–851Q, EIA proposes no changes to the data items. For the EIA–851A the principal change is the addition of Item 8, Reserves Estimate. This new item collects data on the amount of uranium reserves on U.S properties. This item will also collect location data on the properties that hold uranium along with data that collects how the resource data was determined. Among the properties for which this data will be collected are active and inactive mines and properties that can be developed for uranium production. This change is not expected to change the number of respondents that currently complete the form. This additional data should provide a better understanding of the amount of uranium reserves at properties that are being actively worked and those that can be developed for uranium production. The reserves will be grouped according to their forward cost classification, which will provide insight on the domestic reserves that can be accessed under different uranium price conditions. For the EIA–858, the principal change affects Item 2, Total Uranium Inventories. This item is being separated into two parts, A and B. In Item 2, Part A, a new data element, location, is being added to the Domestic-Origin and Foreign-Origin fields to allow for a better understanding of the physical location of the inventory component. Item 2, Part B, Import/Export Balance is being added to determine the amount of an inventory component that has been imported and the amount that has been exported so that a net domestic mass balance can be determined. The benefit of this change is to better understand the material flow, including the size and location of the materials along the uranium processing chain. This data should enable industry observers to more accurately assess the quantity of uranium transfers into, out of, and within the U.S. III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background
II. Current Actions
III. Request for Comments

I. Background

    The Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93-275, 15 
U.S.C. 761 et seq.) and the DOE Organization Act (Pub. L. 95-91, 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 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), 
provides the general public and other Federal agencies with 
opportunities to comment on collections of energy information conducted 
by or in conjunction with the EIA. Any comments received help the EIA 
to prepare data requests that maximize the utility of the information 
collected, and to assess the impact of collection requirements on the 
public. Also, the EIA will later seek approval by the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) under Section 3507(a) of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995.
    The EIA collects information about the uranium fuel cycle for use 
by government and private sector analysts. The survey information is 
disseminated in a variety of electronic products and files. For details 
on the EIA uranium program, please visit the nuclear page of the EIA 
Internet site at http://www.eia.doe.gov/fuelnuclear.html.

II. Current Actions

    The EIA proposes the following changes:
    For the EIA-851Q, EIA proposes no changes to the data items.
    For the EIA-851A the principal change is the addition of Item 8, 
Reserves Estimate. This new item collects data on the amount of uranium 
reserves on U.S properties. This item will also collect location data 
on the properties that hold uranium along with data that collects how 
the resource data was determined. Among the properties for which this 
data will be collected are active and inactive mines and properties 
that can be developed for uranium production. This change is not 
expected to change the number of respondents that currently complete 
the form.
    This additional data should provide a better understanding of the 
amount of uranium reserves at properties that are being actively worked 
and those that can be developed for uranium production. The reserves 
will be grouped according to their forward cost classification, which 
will provide insight on the domestic reserves that can be accessed 
under different uranium price conditions.
    For the EIA-858, the principal change affects Item 2, Total Uranium 
Inventories. This item is being separated into two parts, A and B. In 
Item 2, Part A, a new data element, location, is being added to the 
Domestic-Origin and Foreign-Origin fields to allow for a better 
understanding of the physical location of the inventory component. Item 
2, Part B, Import/Export Balance is being added to determine the amount 
of an inventory component that has been imported and the amount that 
has been exported so that a net domestic mass balance can be 
determined. The benefit of this change is to better understand the 
material flow, including the size and location of the materials along 
the uranium processing chain. This data should enable industry 
observers to more accurately assess the quantity of uranium transfers 
into, out of, and within the U.S.

III. Request for Comments
