ADDRESSES: FERC–592 (‘‘Standards of Conduct for Transmission Providers; and Marketing Affiliates of Interstate Pipelines,’’ OMB No. 1902–0157) includes the reporting, recordkeeping, and posting requirements in: • 18 CFR Part 358 (Standards of Conduct), • 18 CFR 250.16, and • FERC Form No. 592 log/format, that is posted at http://www.ferc.gov/docsfiling/eforms.asp#592. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Hereafter, this Notice will refer to this group of collections of information as ‘‘FERC–592.’’ Under section 4 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), the Commission has the regulatory responsibility to ensure that pipeline rates and terms and conditions of service are just and reasonable and not unduly discriminatory. In order to ensure just and reasonable rates and services, the Commission must achieve two objectives: Prevent undue discrimination in natural gas markets, and promote competitive and efficient markets while mitigating market power. In short, the Commission’s regulatory policy must seek to reconcile the objectives of fostering an efficient market that provides good alternatives to as many shippers as possible, while at the same time creating a regulatory framework that is fair and protects captive customers without good alternatives. The ‘‘FERC–592’’ information (that is posted on the Web site, maintained, and/or provided by the respondents, as required) is used by the Commission to monitor the pipeline’s transportation, sales, and storage activities for its marketing affiliate, and to deter undue discrimination by pipeline companies in favor of their affiliates. The information is also used by nonaffiliated shippers, customers, and others (such as state commissions) to determine whether they have been harmed by affiliate preference and, in some cases, to prepare evidence for proceedings following the filing of a complaint or that address NGA section 4 rate cases. Action: The Commission is requesting a three-year extension of the expiration date for the FERC–592, with no changes to the reporting requirements. Burden Statement: Public reporting burden 1 for this collection is estimated as follows. 1 The average number of hours an employee works per year is 2,080. The average employee costs $128,297 per year. VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:19 Dec 09, 2009 Jkt 220001 PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65527 E:\FR\FM\10DEN1.SGM 10DEN1
