Download as PDF 45594 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 148 / Wednesday, August 1, 2012 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 90th day after the end of the report year (March 31), Form EIA 64A information was due by April 11 following the end of the calendar year, and Form 816 information was due within 20 days of the end of the report period. Pending authorization to administer the proposed new form, EIA has terminated the EIA–895. Thus, the following items will no longer be collected: gas well gas, oil well gas, coalbed methane wells, shale gas, gross withdrawals, repressured gas, natural gas vented and flared, nonhydrocarbon gases removed, marketed production, natural gas used as fuel on leases, wellhead price, and number of producing gas wells. However, through the EIA–914 and the new form EIA–915 the following products will be made accessible with caveats: • Total gross withdrawals: The monthly data will be supplied from the EIA– 914 • Total dry production: The monthly data will be provided by a calculation from the EIA–914 and EIA–915 as follows: D Form EIA–914 will provide natural gas lease production D Form EIA–915 will provide the total plant intake and natural gas sent to transmission lines (pipelines) D The actual value of the dry natural gas production will have two steps: 1. The difference of subtracting natural gas lease production from the total plant inlet will result in pipeline quality gas that does not require processing 2. The value of total natural gas sent to a transmission lines (pipelines) will be added to pipeline quality gas resulting in dry production • Total marketed production is calculated by adding together the dry production value and the extraction loss value Better quality data should result in the new form, because dry production will be calculated as a result of metered production from the EIA–915 and EIA– 914 (Note, the EIA–914 value is estimated from a statistical sample). All data elements collected from the Form EIA–816 are to be transferred to the Form EIA–915. Form EIA–64A elements will also be collected through the Form EIA–915 with the addition of data elements such as: Volume of Natural Gas Intake Processed • Gas Received from Operators and Gas Gatherers Within a Processor’s State Boundaries • Gas Received From Other Processing Plants (provide the plant and state VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:53 Jul 31, 2012 Jkt 226001 where the gas was previously processed) Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Disposition of Plant Intake • • • • Plant Outlet (from plant meters) Extraction Loss Non-Hydrocarbons Vented and Flared Hydrocarbon Gas from the Processing Plant Disposition of Plant Outlet • Repressuring/Cycled • Returned For Lease Fuel • Natural Gas Sent to Fractionators for Fuel Use • Delivered To Other Process Plant • Transmission Line Form EIA–915 is mandatory and must be completed by the operators of ALL facilities that extract liquid hydrocarbons from a natural gas stream (natural gas processing plants) and/or separate a liquid hydrocarbon stream into its component products (fractionators). In addition, gas sweetening plants (plants that extract CO2, H2S, sulfur, etc.) will be required to submit this form. EIA proposes that companyidentifiable data from Form EIA–915 be released to the public in order to meet increasing data user needs for more company-level data. (Currently, 10 states release the gas plant data for free, while Bentek Energy releases the data for a fee.) EIA also proposes that the survey frame administrative data (e.g., company’s name, county) from the EIA– 915 be available to the public. This information can currently be obtained free on 10 states agencies’ Web pages, the Office of Natural Resources Revenue, or for a fee from Bentek Energy and Sulpetro Inc.; (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 550 monthly respondents; (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 6,660 responses on an annual basis; (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 13,200; (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: No additional costs beyond burden hours are anticipated from the proposed new collection instrument. Statutory Authority: Section 13(b) of the Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974, Pub. L. 93–275, codified at 15 U.S.C. 772(b). Issued in Washington, DC, July 26, 2012.
