L. 75–688) (15 U.S.C. 717–717w). Natural gas pipeline companies file applications with the Commission furnishing information in order for a determination to be made as to whether the applicant qualifies for an exemption under the provisions of the Natural Gas Act (Section 1(c)). If the exemption is granted, the natural gas pipeline company is not required to file certificate applications, rate schedules, or any other applications or forms prescribed by the Commission. The exemption applies to companies engaged in the transportation or sale for resale of natural gas in interstate commerce if: (a) They receive gas at or within the boundaries of the state from another person at or within the boundaries of that state; (b) such gas is ultimately consumed in such state; (c) the rates, service and facilities of such company are subject to regulation by a State Commission; and (d) that such State Commission is exercising that jurisdiction. The data required to be filed by pipeline companies for an exemption are specified by Title 18 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 152. Action: The Commission is requesting a three-year extension of the FERC–574 reporting requirements, with no changes. Burden Statement: The estimated annual public reporting burden for FERC–574 is reduced from the estimate made three years ago due to the results of an analysis of recent filings showing that 60 hours per response is a more accurate estimate for the average burden hours per response than the 245 hours used in the 2007 estimate.
