Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, DOE. ACTION: Notice of application. AGENCY: Hunt Electric Power Marketing, L.L.C. (HEPM) has applied to renew its authority to transmit electric SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:34 May 05, 2014 Jkt 232001 energy from the United States to Mexico pursuant to section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act. DATES: Comments, protests, or motions to intervene must be submitted on or before June 5, 2014. ADDRESSES: Comments, protests, motions to intervene, or requests for more information should be addressed to: Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, Mail Code: OE–20, U.S. Department of Energy, 1000 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20585–0350. Because of delays in handling conventional mail, it is recommended that documents be transmitted by overnight mail, by electronic mail to Electricity.Exports@ hq.doe.gov, or by facsimile to 202–586– 8008. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Exports of electricity from the United States to a foreign country are regulated by the Department of Energy (DOE) pursuant to sections 301(b) and 402(f) of the Department of Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7151(b), 7172(f)) and require authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 824a(e)). On August 31, 2009, DOE issued Order No. EA–357, which authorized HEPM to transmit electric energy from the United States to Mexico as a power marketer for a five-year term using existing international transmission facilities. That authority expires on August 31, 2014. On April 14, 2014, HEPM filed an application with DOE for renewal of the export authority contained in Order No. EA–357 for an additional five-year term. In its application, HEPM states that it does not own any electric generating or transmission facilities, and it does not have a franchised service area. The electric energy that HEPM proposes to export to Mexico would be surplus energy purchased from electric utilities, Federal power marketing agencies, and other entities within the United States. The existing international transmission facilities to be utilized by HEPM have previously been authorized by Presidential permits issued pursuant to Executive Order 10485, as amended, and are appropriate for open access transmission by third parties. Procedural Matters: Any person desiring to be heard in this proceeding should file a comment or protest to the application at the address provided above. Protests should be filed in accordance with Rule 211 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Rules of Practice and Procedures (18 CFR 385.211). Any person desiring to become a party to these proceedings PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25855 should file a motion to intervene at the above address in accordance with FERC Rule 214 (18 CFR 385.214). Five copies of such comments, protests, or motions to intervene should be sent to the address provided above on or before the date listed above. Comments on the HEPM application to export electric energy to Mexico should be clearly marked with OE Docket No. EA–357–A.

ACTION: Agency Information Collection Activities: Information Collection Extension; Notice and Request for Comments. AGENCY: EIA intends to revise and extend for three years, Form EIA–914 ‘‘Monthly Natural Gas Production Report,’’ with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The revisions include increasing the number of states for which natural gas production will be collected. Gas production has increased dramatically in a few of the states outside the current SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\06MYN1.SGM 06MYN1 sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 25856 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 87 / Tuesday, May 6, 2014 / Notices EIA–914 states—for example, Pennsylvania and Colorado, both of which now out-produce two of the original EIA–914 areas, New Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico. Much of Colorado’s new production is coalbed methane, while Pennsylvania’s production is largely from the Marcellus shale formation. While production from unconventional sources has risen, production from more traditional formations has declined, particularly in the Gulf of Mexico and New Mexico, as the emphasis on oil production has increased. Pennsylvania and Colorado are representative of quite a few states that have demonstrated recent, large production increases. Thus, EIA considers it important to expand the number of states for which natural gas production data are collected. Additionally, EIA also proposes to add the collection of crude oil and lease condensate production data at the state level. Oil production in the United States has grown recently and, in some cases, dramatically after a long, gradual decline. However, tight formations have fueled a recent reversal of this trend. As recently as April 2005 North Dakota was the tenth-largest producer of crude oil in the United States with less than 2 percent of U.S. production, but due to developments in the Bakken formation, is now the third-largest producer and accounted for slightly more than 12 percent of U.S. production in November 2013. Similarly, Texas production, which declined for many years, dramatically increased over the last two years as the projects in the Eagle Ford formation came on-line and ramped up. Increased production from tight formations have more than offset natural declines in the Gulf of Mexico, California, Alaska, and elsewhere so that exporting U.S. oil production has become a seriously discussed topic. Further, EIA proposes to collect statelevel crude oil and lease condensate production by API gravity category. We think that it’s important to collect oil production by API gravity to inform the growing discussion about exporting crude oil. Proponents of exporting argue that there are large amounts of light crude oil presently produced in the United States, too much for U.S. refineries to process. Opponents of exporting argue that there is far less light crude oil being produced. Thus, collecting crude oil production by API gravity categories will inform the debate. The categories have not been determined yet. We expect that the final VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:34 May 05, 2014 Jkt 232001 set of categories will include ‘‘unknown,’’ but we don’t expect much production reported for this category. Lastly, EIA plans to explore the possibility of collecting sulfur content of U.S. crude oil and lease condensate production (either at the state level, or national level). Categories of sulfur content will be determined once the availability of these data becomes known. Comments are invited on the following issues: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) whether the proposed collection of crude oil and lease condensate by API gravity category is consistent with industry recordkeeping practices, as well as general comments on potential respondents’ ability to provide such information, (c) whether the potential respondents are able to provide a measure of the sulfur content by state, (d) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (e) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

SUMMARY: EIA intends to revise and extend for three years, Form EIA-914 
``Monthly Natural Gas Production Report,'' with the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995.
    The revisions include increasing the number of states for which 
natural gas production will be collected. Gas production has increased 
dramatically in a few of the states outside the current

[[Page 25856]]

EIA-914 states--for example, Pennsylvania and Colorado, both of which 
now out-produce two of the original EIA-914 areas, New Mexico and the 
Gulf of Mexico. Much of Colorado's new production is coalbed methane, 
while Pennsylvania's production is largely from the Marcellus shale 
formation. While production from unconventional sources has risen, 
production from more traditional formations has declined, particularly 
in the Gulf of Mexico and New Mexico, as the emphasis on oil production 
has increased. Pennsylvania and Colorado are representative of quite a 
few states that have demonstrated recent, large production increases. 
Thus, EIA considers it important to expand the number of states for 
which natural gas production data are collected.
    Additionally, EIA also proposes to add the collection of crude oil 
and lease condensate production data at the state level. Oil production 
in the United States has grown recently and, in some cases, 
dramatically after a long, gradual decline. However, tight formations 
have fueled a recent reversal of this trend. As recently as April 2005 
North Dakota was the tenth-largest producer of crude oil in the United

developments in the Bakken formation, is now the third-largest producer 
and accounted for slightly more than 12 percent of U.S. production in

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This information collection request 
contains:
    (1) OMB No. 1905-0160;
    (2) Information Collection Request Title: Monthly Natural Gas 
Production Report;
    (3) Type of Request: Extension, with changes, of a currently 
approved collection
    (4) Purpose: Form EIA-914, ``Monthly Natural Gas Production 
Report,'' collects monthly data on the production of natural gas in 
seven geographical areas (Texas (including State offshore), Louisiana 
(including State offshore), Oklahoma, New Mexico, Wyoming, Federal Gulf 
of Mexico offshore and Other States (defined as all remaining states, 
except Alaska, in which the operator produced natural gas during the 
report month)). The data appear in the ``Monthly Natural Gas Gross 
Production Report'' on EIA's Web site and in the EIA publications, 
Monthly Energy Review, Natural Gas Annual, and Natural Gas Monthly.
    (4a) Proposed Changes to Information Collection:
    The proposed changes include:
     Changing the title from ``Monthly Natural Gas Production 
Report'' to ``Monthly Crude Oil, Lease Condensate, and Natural Gas 
Production Report.''
     In Part 2, EIA is proposing to remove several states from 
the ``Other States'' category--Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, 
Kansas, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, New York, Ohio, 
Pennsylvania, Utah, and West Virginia--and collect both gross 
withdrawals of natural gas and natural gas lease production volumes for 
a total of 21 states/areas including ``Other States.'' The ``Other 
States'' category will be retained, but only include the states 
Arizona, Federal California offshore, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, 
Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, Tennessee, 
South Dakota, and Virginia. EIA will continue to collect Alaska natural 
gas production directly from the state.
     EIA is proposing to add Part 3 to Form EIA-914. Part 3 
will collect total monthly crude oil and lease condensate production 
volumes for the 21 states/areas discussed above, including API gravity. 
Further, the production will be collected for several categories based 
on API gravity across each state. EIA plans to include a measure of the 
sulfur content (by state and API gravity) and is interested in 
assessing the availability of these data to respondents. The proposed 
categories are shown below.

    Note that it is expected that the ``unknown'' category will be 
rarely used by the respondent companies, typically under exceptional 
and temporary circumstances.
    (5) Estimated Number of Survey Respondents: 600 respondents.
    (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: The annual number 
of total responses is 7200. Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 
The annual estimated burden is 21,600 hours.
    (7) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: 
Additional costs to respondents are not anticipated beyond costs 
associated with response burden hours.
    (8) Comments submitted in response to this notice will be 
summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of the form. 
They also will become a matter of public record.
