SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This information collection request contains: (1) OMB No.: 1905–0057; (2) Information Collection Request Title: Oil and Gas Reserves System; (3) Type of Request: Three-year extension with changes; (4) Purpose: EIA has a congressional mandate to provide accurate annual estimates of U.S. proved crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids reserves. EIA presents annual reserves data in EIA Web reports to meet this requirement. This collected data and EIA’s nationwide estimates are essential to the development, implementation, and evaluation of energy policy and legislation. Data are used directly in EIA web reports concerning U.S. crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids reserves, and are incorporated into other reports, including EIA’s Annual Energy Review, Annual Energy Outlook, ShortTerm Energy Outlook, Petroleum Supply Annual, and Natural Gas Annual. EIA proposes to suspend the Form EIA–23S, consolidate some if its respondents into the Form EIA–23L, and change the Form EIA–23L sampling and estimation to streamline administrative processes and to improve data quality. The Form EIA–23L sampling method will change from a probability proportional to size (PPS) method to a cut-off sample that excludes the smallest respondents, who may lack the resources to effectively report all requested data, thus reducing the potential for non-sampling error. Procedures to estimate data published at regional summary levels will be adjusted to reflect the new sampling method. The Form EIA–23L questions will not change. The Form EIA–23L instructions will be updated with the current EIA definitions of terms used. The Form EIA–64A is proposed to be extended without changes. (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,450; (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 1,450; VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:12 Feb 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 43,650 hours; (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: $0; 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. 772(b) and Section 657 of the Department of Energy Organization Act, Pub. L. 95–91. Issued in Washington, DC, on February 22, 2013. Stephanie Brown, Director, Office of Survey Development and Statistical Integration, U.S. Energy Information Administration.
