SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–551, Reporting of Flow Volume and Capacity by Interstate Natural Gas Pipelines. OMB Control No.: 1902–0243. Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–551 information collection requirements with no changes to the current reporting requirements. Abstract: The Commission has a statutory requirement to facilitate price ADDRESSES: transparency in markets for the sale or transportation of physical natural gas in interstate commerce, having due regard for the public interest, the integrity of those markets, fair competition, and the protection of consumers. FERC–551 uses the information provided by pipelines as part of its overall implementation of the statutory provisions of sections 23(a)(1) of the Natural Gas Act, 16 U.S.C. 717t–2(a)(1); Section 316 of EPAct 2005; section 23 to the Natural Gas Act; section 1281 of EPAct 2005 and section 220 to the Federal Power Act. More specifically, the Commission uses the pipelines’ FERC–551 postings as part of fulfilling the transparency provisions of section 23(a)(1) of the Natural Gas Act as mandated by Congress. FERC relies is part on section 23(a)(1) of the Natural Gas Act, for authority to collect this information. The data requirements for pipelines are in listed the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) under 18 CFR part 284.13, reporting requirements for interstate pipelines. The Commission has directed the data requirements under FERC–551 are to be posted on interstate pipelines’ Web sites and not filed on formatted/printed forms. FERC is obligated to prescribe rules for the collection and dissemination of information regarding the wholesale, interstate markets for natural gas and electricity. The Commission is authorized to adopt rules to assure the timely dissemination of information about the availability and prices of natural gas and natural gas transportation and electric energy and transmission service in such markets. The posting requirements are based on the Commission’s authority under section 23 of the NGA (as added by Energy Policy Act of 2005, EPAct 2005), which directs the Commission, in relevant part, to obtain and disseminate ‘‘information about the availability and prices of natural gas at wholesale and in interstate commerce.’’ 1 This provision enhances the Commission’s authority to ensure confidence in the nation’s natural gas markets. The Commission’s market-oriented policies for the wholesale natural gas industry require that interested persons have broad confidence that reported market prices accurately reflect the interplay of legitimate market forces. Without confidence in the efficiency of price formation, the true value of transactions is very difficult to determine. Further, price transparency facilitates ensuring that jurisdictional prices are ‘‘just and reasonable.’’ 2 The posting for FERC–551 occurs on a daily basis. The data must be available for download for 90 days and must be retained by the pipeline for 3 years. The daily posting requirements for major non-interstate pipelines prescribed in the Commission’s Order No. 720 are no longer required. The number of respondents used to develop the burden estimates does not include any major non-interstate pipelines (18 CFR 284.14). Type of Respondents: Interstate Natural Gas Pipelines. Estimate of Annual Burden: 3 The Commission estimates the total public reporting burden and cost for this information collection as follows: FERC–551: REPORTING OF FLOW VOLUME AND CAPACITY BY INTERSTATE NATURAL GAS PIPELINES Number of respondents Total number of responses Average burden & cost per response 4 Total annual burden hours & total annual cost Burden hours & cost per respondent ($) (1) FERC–551 ...

Lhorne on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Comments: Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden and cost of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. 1 Section 23(a)(2) of the NGA, 15 U.S.C. 717t– 2(a)(2) (2000 & Supp. V 2005). 2 See sections 4 and 5 of the NGA, 15 U.S.C. 717c and 717d. 3 Burden is defined as the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. For further explanation of what is included in the information collection burden, refer to 5 Code of Federal Regulations 1320.3. 4 The estimates for cost per response are derived using the following formula: Average Burden Hours per Response × $60.44 per hour = Average Cost per Response.

    Abstract: The Commission has a statutory requirement to facilitate 
price transparency in markets for the sale or transportation of 
physical natural gas in interstate commerce, having due regard for the 
public interest, the integrity of those markets, fair competition, and 
the protection of consumers. FERC-551 uses the information provided by 
pipelines as part of its overall implementation of the statutory 
provisions of sections 23(a)(1) of the Natural Gas Act, 16 U.S.C. 717t-

section 1281 of EPAct 2005 and section 220 to the Federal Power Act. 
More specifically, the Commission uses the pipelines' FERC-551 postings 
as part of fulfilling the transparency provisions of section 23(a)(1) 
of the Natural Gas Act as mandated by Congress. FERC relies is part on 
section 23(a)(1) of the Natural Gas Act, for authority to collect this 
information. The data requirements for pipelines are in listed the Code

requirements for interstate pipelines. The Commission has directed the 
data requirements under FERC-551 are to be posted on interstate 
pipelines' Web sites and not filed on formatted/printed forms.
    FERC is obligated to prescribe rules for the collection and 
dissemination of information regarding the wholesale, interstate 
markets for natural gas and electricity. The Commission is authorized 
to adopt rules to assure the timely dissemination of information about 
the availability and prices of natural gas and natural gas 
transportation and electric energy and transmission service in such

    The posting requirements are based on the Commission's authority
