The information collection requests a three-year extension of Form FE–746R, ‘‘Natural Gas Imports and Exports,’’ OMB Control Number 1901–0294. The proposed collection will support DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy (FE) in the collection of critical information on U.S. natural gas trade. Data collected include name of importer/exporter; country of origin/destination; international point of entry/exit; name of supplier; volume; price; transporters; U.S. geographic market(s) served; and duration of supply contract on a monthly basis. The data, published in Natural Gas Imports and Exports, are used to monitor North American gas trade, and to support various market and regulatory analyses performed by FE. DATES: Comments regarding this proposed information collection must be received on or before May 29, 2013. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, please advise the DOE Desk Officer at OMB of your intention to make a submission as soon as possible.

Copies of the information collection instruments and instructions can also be viewed at https://www.fe.doe.gov/programs/ gasregulation/report_guidelines.html. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This information collection request contains: (1) OMB No.: 1901–0294; (2) Information Collection Request Title: Natural Gas Imports and Exports; (3) Type of Request: Three-Year Extension; (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 the 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. The EIA, as part of its effort to comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), provides the general public and other Federal agencies with opportunities to comment on collections of energy information conducted by or in conjunction with the EIA. DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy (FE) is delegated the authority to regulate natural gas imports and exports under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act of 1938, 15 U.S.C. 717b. In order to carry out its delegated responsibility, FE requires those persons seeking to import or export natural gas to file an application providing basic information on the scope and nature of the proposed import/export activity. Once an importer or exporter receives authorization from FE, they are required to submit monthly reports of all import and export transactions. Form FE–746R collects critical information on U.S. natural gas trade including: name of importer/exporter; country of origin/ destination; international point of entry/ exit; name of supplier; volume; price; transporters; U.S. geographic market(s) served; and duration of supply contract on a monthly basis. The data, published in Natural Gas Imports and Exports, are used to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions of the authorizations. In addition, the data are used to monitor North American gas trade, which, in turn, enables the Federal government to perform market and regulatory analyses; improve the capability of industry and the government to respond to any future energy-related supply problems; and keep the general public informed of E:\FR\FM\29APN1.SGM 29APN1
