SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–521, Payments for Benefits from Headwater Improvements. OMB Control No.: 1902–0087. Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–521 information collection requirements with no changes to the current reporting requirements. Abstract: The information collected under the requirements of FERC–521 is used by the Commission to implement the statutory provisions of Section 10(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA).1 The FPA authorizes the Commission to determine headwater benefits received by downstream hydropower project owners. Headwater benefits are the additional energy production possible at a downstream hydropower project resulting from the regulation of river flows by an upstream storage reservoir. When the Commission completes a study of a river basin, it determines headwater benefits charges that will be apportioned among the various downstream beneficiaries. A headwater benefits charge and the cost incurred by the Commission to complete an evaluation are paid by downstream hydropower project owners. In essence, the owners of non-federal hydropower projects that directly benefit from a headwater improvement must pay an equitable portion of the annual charges for interest, maintenance, and depreciation of the headwater project to the U.S. Treasury. The regulations provide for apportionment of these costs between the headwater project and downstream projects based on 26477 downstream energy gains and propose equitable apportionment methodology that can be applied to all river basins in which headwater improvements are built. The Commission requires owners of non-federal hydropower projects to file data for determining annual charges as outlined in 18 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 11. Type of Respondents: There are two types of entities that respond, Federal and Non-Federal hydropower project owners. The Federal entities that typically respond are the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Department of Interior Bureau of Reclamation. The Non-Federal entities may consist of any Municipal or NonMunicipal hydropower project owner. Estimate of Annual Burden: 2 The Commission estimates the total Public Reporting Burden for this information collection as: FERC–521—PAYMENTS FOR BENEFITS FROM HEADWATER IMPROVEMENTS Number of respondents Annual number of responses per respondent Total number of responses Average burden & cost per response Total annual burden hours & total annual cost Cost per respondent ($) (1) (2) (1) * (2) = (3) (4) (3) * (4) = (5) (5) ÷ (1) Federal and Non-Federal hydropower project owners. 3 1 3 Total Cost ................................... ........................ ........................ ........................ sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES The total estimated annual cost burden to respondents is $9,180 [120 hrs. * $76.50/hour 3 = $9,180] 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 16 U.S.C. 803. is 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.

Box 1396, Houston, Texas 77251, filed in Docket No. CP17–450–000 an application pursuant to section 7(b) of VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:37 Jun 06, 2017 Jkt 241001 the Natural Gas Act (NGA) and Part 157 of the Commission’s regulations, requesting authorization to abandon in place its offshore gathering laterals extending from Brazos Block A–133A to Brazos Block 538. The gathering facilities proposed to be abandon are located on Transco’s Central Texas Gathering System (CTGS) in federal waters offshore Texas. Specifically, Transco proposes to abandon the CTGS West Facilities that consist of: (i) A 10.72-mile, 20-inch offshore gathering lateral extending from Brazos Block A–133A platform to the Brazos Block A–76 subsea tie-in, and (ii) a 30-mile, 20-inch offshore gathering lateral extending from the Brazos Block A–76 subsea tie-in to the Brazos Block 538 platform. Transco states that the abandonment of the CTGS West Facilities will have no impacts on the upstream shippers as the approximately 35,000 dekatherms per day that currently flows on these laterals will be re-routed to an existing parallel line. Transco estimates the cost of the abandonment of the CTGS West Facilities to be approximately $2.9 million, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.

If a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff’s issuance of the EA for this proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission’s public record for this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 state agencies of the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff’s EA. There are two ways to become involved in the Commission’s review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below, file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit five copies of filings made with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding. However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission’s rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest. Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commentors will be placed on the Commission’s environmental mailing list, will receive copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings associated with the Commission’s environmental review process. Environmental commentors will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commentors will not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission (except for the mailing of E:\FR\FM\07JNN1.SGM 07JNN1
