Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 228 / Monday, November 30, 2009 / Notices Exchange at Camp Parks. The ROD selects the Accelerated Modernization Alternative, under which the construction of new facilities and ranges included in the RPMP would be partially funded using the value of the land exchange (180 acres of the southern cantonment area) from Federal to private ownership. The remainder of RPMP construction at Camp Parks would be programmed as military construction projects. NASA’s inholding would be sold and proceeds of the sale would be used at its NASA– Ames Research Center, Moffett Field. This decision will speed the replacement of antiquated facilities and infrastructure on Camp Parks. ADDRESSES: Questions regarding this action can be directed to: U.S. Army Garrison Camp Parks, Environmental Office, Building 791 5th Street, Dublin, CA 94568–5201.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts from this decision include loss of non-native grasslands and modification of wetlands; loss of special-status species; traffic congestion at the Dublin Boulevard/Dougherty Road intersection; and air quality, socioeconomic, and visual impacts. Proposed mitigation measures would reduce the severity and extent of potential impacts. A copy of the Final Environmental Impact Statement and ROD can be viewed at http://www.licicett.army.mil.

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. 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 the EIA. 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. DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy (FE) is delegated the authority to regulate natural gas imports and exports under E:\FR\FM\30NON1.SGM 30NON1 62568 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 228 / Monday, November 30, 2009 / Notices section 3 of the Natural Gas Act of 1938, 15 U.S.C. 717b. In order to carry out its delegated responsibility, FE requires those persons seeking to import or export natural gas to file an application containing the basic information about the scope and nature of the proposed import/export activity. DOE collects critical natural gas information (i.e., country of origin/destination, international point of entry/exit; name of supplier; volume; price; transporter; geographic market served; and duration of supply contract) on a monthly basis. This information, which is published in FE’s Natural Gas Import and Export Quarterly Report, is used to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions of the authorizations. In addition, the data are used to monitor North American gas trade, which, in turn, enables the Federal government to perform market and regulatory analyses; improve the capability of industry and the government to respond to any future energy-related supply problems; and keep the general public informed of international natural gas trade. Please refer the to the natural gas import and export report 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, disclosure information, and uses (including possible nonstatistical uses) of the information. For instructions on obtaining materials, see the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. II. Current Actions DOE will be requesting a three-year extension of approval to its natural gas import and export activity data collection with no changes to the previously approved collection. DOE will treat the monthly information as public information, which conforms to the historical treatment of all natural gas import and export information filed pursuant to the terms of all natural gas import/export authorizations.

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. 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 
the EIA. 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.
    DOE's Office of Fossil Energy (FE) is delegated the authority to

section 3 of the Natural Gas Act of 1938, 15 U.S.C. 717b. In order to 
carry out its delegated responsibility, FE requires those persons 
seeking to import or export natural gas to file an application 
containing the basic information about the scope and nature of the

II. Current Actions

    DOE will be requesting a three-year extension of approval to its 
natural gas import and export activity data collection with no changes
