ACTION: Notice and Request for OMB Review and Comment. AGENCY: The EIA has submitted an information collection request to the OMB for extension under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information collection requests a three-year extension of its Petroleum Supply Reporting System, OMB Control Number 1905–0165. The proposed collection will produce data used in statistical analytical reports as well as forecasts produced by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Reports and forecasts are essential to accomplish the agency’s mission to promote sound policy making, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interactions with the economy and the environment.

EIA currently uses Parts 5, 6, and 7 of Form EIA–812 to collect petroleum product storage capacity and related stock data in those tanks from pipeline companies twice a year (as of March 31 and September 30). Collecting biannual tank storage capacity and related stocks in those tanks by product pipelines did not provide useful information for assessing available petroleum supplies. Product pipeline inventories held in tanks are used for operational purposes, not commercial purposes. EIA will still collect pipeline linefill stocks along with stocks and biannual storage capacity data for petroleum products held at terminals and refineries. Discontinuing the biannual collection of storage capacity and related tank stocks on Form EIA–812 will eliminate confusion in analyzing storage capacity utilization, stock levels, improve the quality of petroleum storage data and reduce reporting burden on this form. EIA will discontinue collecting lease inventories on Form EIA–813, ‘‘Monthly Crude Oil Report’’ and Form EIA–803, ‘‘Weekly Crude Oil Stocks Report.’’ Lease inventories are inventories stored at crude oil production sites. The purpose of stocks held on oil and gas producing leases (lease stocks) is to facilitate oil and gas production operations. Lease stocks are typically held only long enough for oil to be picked up by trucks or otherwise removed from production sites. While the total number of barrels held as lease stocks is significant, the barrels are widely dispersed at producing sites with only small quantities at any given location. For these reasons, we have determined that continued tracking of lease stocks on Form EIA–803 and Form EIA–813 has limited value for assessment of crude oil supplies available to markets. In addition, our research has shown that some or all of the barrels reported by respondents as lease stocks are actually outside of the U.S. and regional crude oil balances developed by EIA. This affects estimates that are calculated to assess supply because barrels may be recorded as VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:20 May 10, 2016 Jkt 238001 crude oil production, which is the first supply component of our balance, only after the barrels are withdrawn from lease stocks.

DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

Energy Information Administration


Agency Information Collection Extension

AGENCY: U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), Department of 
Energy.

ACTION: Notice and Request for OMB Review and Comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The EIA has submitted an information collection request to the 
OMB for extension under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995. The information collection requests a three-year extension of 
its Petroleum Supply Reporting System, OMB Control Number 1905-0165. 
The proposed collection will produce data used in statistical 
analytical reports as well as forecasts produced by the U.S. Energy 
Information Administration. Reports and forecasts are essential to 
accomplish the agency's mission to promote sound policy making, 
efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its 
interactions with the economy and the environment. Users of the data 
include government officials, industry and financial analysts, and the 
public. EIA proposes one change to Form EIA-812, Form EIA-813, and Form 
EIA-803 and no other changes to:

 Form EIA-22M, ``Monthly Biodiesel Production Survey''
 Form EIA-800, ``Weekly Refinery and Fractionator Report''
 Form EIA-802, ``Weekly Product Pipeline Report''
 Form EIA-803, ``Weekly Crude Oil Stocks Report''
 Form EIA-804, ``Weekly Imports Report''
 Form EIA-805, ``Weekly Bulk Terminal and Blender Report''
 Form EIA-809, ``Weekly Oxygenate Report''
 Form EIA-810, ``Monthly Refinery Report''
 Form EIA-812, ``Monthly Product Pipeline Report'' (proposed 
change)
 Form EIA-813, ``Monthly Crude Oil Report''
 Form EIA-814, ``Monthly Imports Report''
 Form EIA-815, ``Monthly Bulk Terminal and Blender Report''
 Form EIA-816, ``Monthly Natural Gas Plant Liquids Report''

[[Page 29258]]

 Form EIA-817, ``Monthly Tanker and Barge Movement Report''
 Form EIA-819, ``Monthly Oxygenate Report''
 Form EIA-820, ``Annual Refinery Report.''

    EIA proposes to discontinue biannually collecting information on 
Form EIA-812 on petroleum product tank storage capacity and related 
biannual separate reporting of stocks held in those tanks and to 
discontinue collection of crude oil lease stocks on Form EIA-813 and 
Form EIA-803. EIA currently uses Parts 5, 6, and 7 of Form EIA-812 to 
collect petroleum product storage capacity and related stock data in 
those tanks from pipeline companies twice a year (as of March 31 and 
September 30). Collecting biannual tank storage capacity and related 
stocks in those tanks by product pipelines did not provide useful 
information for assessing available petroleum supplies. Product 
pipeline inventories held in tanks are used for operational purposes, 
not commercial purposes. EIA will still collect pipeline linefill 
stocks along with stocks and biannual storage capacity data for 
petroleum products held at terminals and refineries. Discontinuing the 
biannual collection of storage capacity and related tank stocks on Form 
EIA-812 will eliminate confusion in analyzing storage capacity 
utilization, stock levels, improve the quality of petroleum storage 
data and reduce reporting burden on this form.
    EIA will discontinue collecting lease inventories on Form EIA-813, 
``Monthly Crude Oil Report'' and Form EIA-803, ``Weekly Crude Oil 
Stocks Report.'' Lease inventories are inventories stored at crude oil 
production sites. The purpose of stocks held on oil and gas producing 
leases (lease stocks) is to facilitate oil and gas production 
operations. Lease stocks are typically held only long enough for oil to 
be picked up by trucks or otherwise removed from production sites. 
While the total number of barrels held as lease stocks is significant, 
the barrels are widely dispersed at producing sites with only small 
quantities at any given location. For these reasons, we have determined 
that continued tracking of lease stocks on Form EIA-803 and Form EIA-
813 has limited value for assessment of crude oil supplies available to 
markets. In addition, our research has shown that some or all of the 
barrels reported by respondents as lease stocks are actually outside of 
the U.S. and regional crude oil balances developed by EIA. This affects 
estimates that are calculated to assess supply because barrels may be 
recorded as crude oil production, which is the first supply component 
of our balance, only after the barrels are withdrawn from lease stocks. 
EIA will create and publish historical data series of crude oil stocks 
excluding lease stocks in order to meet analyst requirements for crude 
oil inventory data that are consistent over time.

DATES: Comments regarding this proposed information collection must be 
received on or before June 10, 2016. 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. The 
Desk Officer may be telephoned at 202-395-4718.

ADDRESSES: Written comments should be sent to the DOE Desk Officer,

Budget, New Executive Office Building, Room 10102, 735 17th Street NW., 
Washington, DC 20503, and to Robert Meriam, robert.merriam@eia.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or 
copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should 
be directed to Robert Merriam, 1000 Independence Ave. SW., Washington, 
DC 20585. The forms and instructions are available on EIA's Web site
