Background II. Current Actions III. Request for Comments I. Background The Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974, specifically 15 U.S.C. 790a, and the DOE Organization Act, specifically 42 U.S.C. 7135, require 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 and to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of petroleum supply and delivery systems. EIA, as part of its effort to comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), provides the general public and other Federal agencies with opportunities to comment on collections of energy information conducted by or in conjunction with EIA. Any comments received help EIA prepare data requests that maximize the utility of the information collected, and assess the impact of collection requirements on the public. Also, EIA will later seek approval for this collection by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) E:\FR\FM\02NON1.SGM 02NON1 56596 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 210 / Monday, November 2, 2009 / Notices srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES under Section 3507(a) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The monthly petroleum supply surveys are designed to provide statistically reliable and comprehensive information not available from other sources to EIA, other Federal agencies, and the private sector for use in forecasting, policy making, planning, and analysis activities. The information appears in the publications listed below and is also available electronically through the Internet at: http:// www.eia.doe.gov/oil_gas/petroleum/ info_glance/petroleum.html Publications: Internet-only publications are the Petroleum Supply Monthly, Petroleum Supply Annual, and Short-Term Energy Outlook. Hardcopy and Internet publications are the Monthly Energy Review (DOE/EIA– 0035), the Annual Energy Review (DOE/ EIA–0384), and the Annual Energy Outlook (DOE/EIA–0383). II. Current Actions In order to improve market transparency and more effectively analyze petroleum markets, EIA proposes to collect working and shell storage capacity for crude oil and petroleum products semi-annually in March and September. Inventories are an important source of supply in meeting regional and local demand. Industry treats inventories strategically as an economic means of helping to meet their market requirements and opportunities. Furthermore, as regulatory requirements change, there is a need to monitor whether or not capacity to store both crude oil and products is being either temporarily or permanently idled. Data regarding capacity to hold inventories is therefore of great interest. This information is also needed to inform responses to energy emergencies. Storage capacity reported on EIA surveys will include aboveground and underground storage for only those facilities and tanks for which inventory levels are currently reported on the surveys. Therefore, bonded storage capacity and storage capacity in secondary and tertiary sectors will be excluded because stocks held in these storage sectors are out of scope for existing petroleum supply surveys. The information requested will be added to the existing survey forms. The first collection period will be for March 2010, due April 20, 2010. The ‘‘Monthly Refinery Report,’’ form, EIA–810—Collect working and shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, and total) by refinery site for the following products: Crude oil, fuel ethanol, natural gas plant liquids and liquefied VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:03 Oct 30, 2009 Jkt 220001 refinery gases (including mixes and pentanes plus), storage dedicated to propane and propylene, motor gasoline (including gasoline blending components), distillate fuel oil, kerosene and kerosene-type jet fuel, residual fuel oil, asphalt and road oil, other products, and total product storage capacity. The ‘‘Monthly Product Pipeline Report,’’ form EIA–812—Collect working and shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, and total) by Petroleum Administration for Defense Districts (PADD) for the following products: Fuel ethanol, natural gas plant liquids and liquefied refinery gases (including mixes and pentanes plus), storage dedicated to propane and propylene, motor gasoline (including gasoline blending components), distillate fuel oil, kerosene and kerosene-type jet fuel, residual fuel oil, asphalt and road oil, other products, and total product storage capacity. In addition, information is being requested on whether pipeline and storage tank access is used exclusively by the reporting company or whether tanks may be used by other companies. The ‘‘Monthly Crude Oil Report,’’ form EIA–813—Collect crude oil working and shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, and total) by PADD. Working and shell storage capacity is also being requested for the Cushing, Oklahoma area. Storage capacity will only be collected for tank farms facilities. Storage in pipelines and on leases will be excluded. Information is also being requested on whether tank storage is used exclusively by the reporting company or whether tanks may be used by other companies. The ‘‘Monthly Terminal Blenders Report,’’ EIA–815—Collect working and shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, and total) by terminal site for the following products: Fuel ethanol, natural gas plant liquids and liquefied refinery gases (including mixes and pentanes plus), storage dedicated to propane and propylene, motor gasoline (including blending components), kerosene, kerosene-type jet fuel, distillate fuel oil, residual fuel oil, asphalt and road oil, other products, and total product storage capacity. Information is also being requested on whether tank storage is used exclusively by the reporting company or whether tanks may be used by other companies and whether any tanks at the terminal are used for transshipment of products by pipeline or other modes of transportation. The ‘‘Monthly Natural Gas Liquids Report,’’ form EIA–816—Collect working and shell storage capacity (in PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 operation, idle, and total) by gas processing or fractionation plant site for natural gas plant liquids (including mixes of liquefied petroleum gases and pentanes plus).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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

I. Background

    The Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974, specifically 15 
U.S.C. 790a, and the DOE Organization Act, specifically 42 U.S.C. 7135, 
require 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 and to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and 
public understanding of petroleum supply and delivery systems.
    EIA, as part of its effort to comply with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), provides the 
general public and other Federal agencies with opportunities to comment 
on collections of energy information conducted by or in conjunction 
with EIA. Any comments received help EIA prepare data requests that 
maximize the utility of the information collected, and assess the 
impact of collection requirements on the public. Also, EIA will later 
seek approval for this collection by the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB)

[[Page 56596]]

under Section 3507(a) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.
    The monthly petroleum supply surveys are designed to provide 
statistically reliable and comprehensive information not available from 
other sources to EIA, other Federal agencies, and the private sector 
for use in forecasting, policy making, planning, and analysis 
activities. The information appears in the publications listed below 
and is also available electronically through the Internet at: http://www.eia.doe.gov/oil_gas/petroleum/info_glance/petroleum.html
    Publications: Internet-only publications are the Petroleum Supply 
Monthly, Petroleum Supply Annual, and Short-Term Energy Outlook. 
Hardcopy and Internet publications are the Monthly Energy Review (DOE/
EIA-0035), the Annual Energy Review (DOE/EIA-0384), and the Annual 
Energy Outlook (DOE/EIA-0383).

II. Current Actions

    In order to improve market transparency and more effectively 
analyze petroleum markets, EIA proposes to collect working and shell 
storage capacity for crude oil and petroleum products semi-annually in 
March and September. Inventories are an important source of supply in 
meeting regional and local demand. Industry treats inventories 
strategically as an economic means of helping to meet their market 
requirements and opportunities. Furthermore, as regulatory requirements 
change, there is a need to monitor whether or not capacity to store 
both crude oil and products is being either temporarily or permanently 
idled. Data regarding capacity to hold inventories is therefore of 
great interest. This information is also needed to inform responses to 
energy emergencies.
    Storage capacity reported on EIA surveys will include aboveground 
and underground storage for only those facilities and tanks for which 
inventory levels are currently reported on the surveys. Therefore, 
bonded storage capacity and storage capacity in secondary and tertiary 
sectors will be excluded because stocks held in these storage sectors 
are out of scope for existing petroleum supply surveys. The information 
requested will be added to the existing survey forms. The first 
collection period will be for March 2010, due April 20, 2010.
    The ``Monthly Refinery Report,'' form, EIA-810--Collect working and 
shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, and total) by refinery site 
for the following products: Crude oil, fuel ethanol, natural gas plant 
liquids and liquefied refinery gases (including mixes and pentanes 
plus), storage dedicated to propane and propylene, motor gasoline 
(including gasoline blending components), distillate fuel oil, kerosene 
and kerosene-type jet fuel, residual fuel oil, asphalt and road oil, 
other products, and total product storage capacity.
    The ``Monthly Product Pipeline Report,'' form EIA-812--Collect 
working and shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, and total) by 
Petroleum Administration for Defense Districts (PADD) for the following 
products: Fuel ethanol, natural gas plant liquids and liquefied 
refinery gases (including mixes and pentanes plus), storage dedicated 
to propane and propylene, motor gasoline (including gasoline blending 
components), distillate fuel oil, kerosene and kerosene-type jet fuel, 
residual fuel oil, asphalt and road oil, other products, and total 
product storage capacity. In addition, information is being requested 
on whether pipeline and storage tank access is used exclusively by the 
reporting company or whether tanks may be used by other companies.
    The ``Monthly Crude Oil Report,'' form EIA-813--Collect crude oil 
working and shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, and total) by 
PADD. Working and shell storage capacity is also being requested for 
the Cushing, Oklahoma area. Storage capacity will only be collected for 
tank farms facilities. Storage in pipelines and on leases will be 
excluded. Information is also being requested on whether tank storage 
is used exclusively by the reporting company or whether tanks may be 
used by other companies.
    The ``Monthly Terminal Blenders Report,'' EIA-815--Collect working 
and shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, and total) by terminal 
site for the following products: Fuel ethanol, natural gas plant 
liquids and liquefied refinery gases (including mixes and pentanes 
plus), storage dedicated to propane and propylene, motor gasoline 
(including blending components), kerosene, kerosene-type jet fuel, 
distillate fuel oil, residual fuel oil, asphalt and road oil, other 
products, and total product storage capacity. Information is also being 
requested on whether tank storage is used exclusively by the reporting 
company or whether tanks may be used by other companies and whether any 
tanks at the terminal are used for transshipment of products by 
pipeline or other modes of transportation.
    The ``Monthly Natural Gas Liquids Report,'' form EIA-816--Collect 
working and shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, and total) by 
gas processing or fractionation plant site for natural gas plant 
liquids (including mixes of liquefied petroleum gases and pentanes 
plus). In addition, storage dedicated to propane is being requested.
    The ``Monthly Oxygenate Report,'' form EIA-819--Collect working and 
shell storage capacity (in operation, idle, total) by producer site for 
fuel ethanol.
