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. EIA, as part of its effort to comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (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 EIA. Also, EIA will later seek approval for this collection by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under Section 3507(a) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. EIA’s petroleum marketing survey forms collect volumetric and price information needed for determining the supply of and demand for crude oil and refined petroleum products. These surveys provide a basic set of data pertaining to the structure, efficiency, and behavior of petroleum markets. These data are published by EIA on its Web site, http://www.eia.gov, as well as in publications such as the Monthly Energy Review (http://www.eia.gov/ totalenergy/data/monthly/), Annual Energy Review (http://www.eia.gov/ totalenergy/data/annual/), Petroleum Marketing Monthly (http://www.eia.gov/ oil_gas/petroleum/data_publications/ petroleum_marketing_monthly/ pmm.html), Weekly Petroleum Status Report (http://www.eia.gov/oil_gas/ petroleum/data_publications/ weekly_petroleum_status_report/ wpsr.html), and the International Energy Outlook (http://www.eia.gov/forecasts/ ieo/); (4a) Proposed Changes to Information Collection: EIA will be requesting a 3-year extension of approval to continue collecting 10 petroleum marketing surveys (Forms EIA–14, EIA–182, EIA– 782A, EIA–782C, EIA–821, EIA–856, EIA–863, EIA–877, EIA–878, and EIA– 888) with the only substantive changes SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\05APN1.SGM 05APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 66 / Thursday, April 5, 2012 / Notices to the survey forms and instructions being the elimination of collecting information on No. 2 diesel fuel lowsulfur categories on Forms EIA–782A, EIA–821, and EIA–888. EIA proposes to discontinue collection of information on No. 2 diesel fuel sales through company-operated outlets for diesel fuel with sulfur content of >15 and <=500 ppm on Form EIA–782A, and the category on-highway diesel fuel use with sulfur content of >15 and <=500 ppm on Form EIA–821. EIA proposes not to collect price information for onhighway low-sulfur diesel fuel on Form EIA–888. The proposed form changes are necessary because of regulations issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency which prohibit the sale of No. 2 diesel fuel with sulfur content of >15 and <=500 ppm for onhighway use. EIA does not seek renewal of the Form EIA–782B, ‘‘Resellers’/Retailers’ Monthly Petroleum Product Sales Report,’’ as part of this information collection. EIA suspended the use of Form EIA–782B in May 2011, due to resource constraints and notified the respondents in the reporting sample by letter dated May 23, 2011 that they were no longer required to file this report.

If a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff’s issuance of the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) or EA for this proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission’s public record for this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20617 state agencies of the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff’s FEIS or EA. There are two ways to become involved in the Commission’s review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit 14 copies of filings made in the proceeding with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding. However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission’s rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest. Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commentors will be placed on the Commission’s environmental mailing list, will receive copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings associated with the Commission’s environmental review process. Environmental commentors will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commentors will not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission (except for the mailing of E:\FR\FM\05APN1.SGM 05APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This information collection request 
contains:
    (1) OMB No. 1905-0174;
    (2) Information Collection Request Title: Petroleum Marketing 
Program;
    (3) Type of Request: Renewal with change;
    (4) Purpose:
    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 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.
    EIA, as part of its effort to comply with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (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 EIA. Also, EIA 
will later seek approval for this collection by the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) under Section 3507(a) of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995.
    EIA's petroleum marketing survey forms collect volumetric and price 
information needed for determining the supply of and demand for crude 
oil and refined petroleum products. These surveys provide a basic set 
of data pertaining to the structure, efficiency, and behavior of 
petroleum markets. These data are published by EIA on its Web site, 
http://www.eia.gov, as well as in publications such as the Monthly 
Energy Review (http://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/monthly/), Annual 
Energy Review (http://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/annual/), Petroleum 
Marketing Monthly (http://www.eia.gov/oil_gas/petroleum/data_publications/petroleum_marketing_monthly/pmm.html), Weekly Petroleum 
Status Report (http://www.eia.gov/oil_gas/petroleum/data_publications/weekly_petroleum_status_report/wpsr.html), and the 
International Energy Outlook (http://www.eia.gov/forecasts/ieo/);
    (4a) Proposed Changes to Information Collection:
    EIA will be requesting a 3-year extension of approval to continue 
collecting 10 petroleum marketing surveys (Forms EIA-14, EIA-182, EIA-
782A, EIA-782C, EIA-821, EIA-856, EIA-863, EIA-877, EIA-878, and EIA-
888) with the only substantive changes

[[Page 20617]]

to the survey forms and instructions being the elimination of 
collecting information on No. 2 diesel fuel low-sulfur categories on 
Forms EIA-782A, EIA-821, and EIA-888. EIA proposes to discontinue 
collection of information on No. 2 diesel fuel sales through company-
operated outlets for diesel fuel with sulfur content of >15 and <=500 
ppm on Form EIA-782A, and the category on-highway diesel fuel use with 
sulfur content of >15 and <=500 ppm on Form EIA-821. EIA proposes not 
to collect price information for on-highway low-sulfur diesel fuel on 
Form EIA-888. The proposed form changes are necessary because of 
regulations issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency which 
prohibit the sale of No. 2 diesel fuel with sulfur content of >15 and 
<=500 ppm for on-highway use. EIA does not seek renewal of the Form 
EIA-782B,
    ``Resellers'/Retailers' Monthly Petroleum Product Sales Report,'' 
as part of this information collection. EIA suspended the use of Form 
EIA-782B in May 2011, due to resource constraints and notified the 
respondents in the reporting sample by letter dated May 23, 2011 that 
they were no longer required to file this report.

Information Collection Burden Estimates

    (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 11,953 respondents;
    (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 106,661 responses 
per year;
    (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 56,186 hours per year;
    (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: EIA 
estimates that there are no additional costs to respondents associated 
with the surveys other than the costs associated with the burden hours.

    Statutory Authority:  Section 13(b) of the Federal Energy 
Administration Act of 1974, Pub. L. 93-275, codified at 15 U.S.C.
