SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Section 1320.8(d), Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, requires PHMSA to provide interested members of the public and affected entities an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping requests. This notice identifies the proposed changes to the information collection that PHMSA will submit to OMB for approval. In order to improve the data collection processes, PHMSA is revising the Gas Distribution Annual Report Form PHMSA F 7100.1–1, and the instructions associated with this Form. PHMSA will remove ‘‘Other’’ as a selection for Operator Type in Part A7 and add guidance for the proper selection to the instructions. By eliminating ‘‘Other’’ as a selection, PHMSA will obtain more accurate data about the types of gas distribution operators. PHMSA is also changing the instructions for PHMSA Form 7100.1–1, Gas Distribution System Annual Report, related to calculating the percent of lost and unaccounted for (LAUF) gas and negative percent values. PHMSA will calculate the percent of LAUF gas by dividing the LAUF volume by the gas consumption volume. PHMSA will allow a negative value to be reported for the percent of LAUF gas. These changes will harmonize the PHMSA and Energy Information Administration (EIA) methodologies for calculating the percent of LAUF gas. PHMSA received five comments in response to the revision of this information collection. Four comments came from anonymous sources and one comment came from The American Public Gas Association (APGA). sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES A. Summary of Comment PHMSA has proposed changing the denominator from ‘‘volume of input’’ to ‘‘volume consumed’’ when calculating the percent of lost and unaccounted for gas. This change would match the methodology used by the EIA. APGA recommends no change to the methodology for calculating the percent of lost and unaccounted for gas since a percent is not reported to the EIA. Also, changing the denominator for calculating percent would make analysis of multi-year trends more difficult. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Jan 24, 2018 Jkt 244001 B. PHMSA Response Each year, EIA publishes volume data in a document titled: Natural Gas Annual. In Table A1 of the calendar year 2016 Natural Gas Annual, the EIA calculates ‘‘Losses and Unaccounted as a percent of Total Consumption.’’ PHMSA’s proposal aligns with the EIA methodology in the Natural Gas Annual. Regarding the impact of the methodology change on the analysis of multi-year trends, the impact would be minimal. For example, using calendar year 2016 EIA data for Massachusetts, the percent using the current PHMSA methodology yields a value of 3.2 percent. When using the EIA methodology, the value is 3.3 percent. II. Summary of Impacted Collection Section 1320.8(d), Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, requires PHMSA to provide interested members of the public and affected agencies an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping requests. This notice identifies an information collection request that PHMSA will submit to OMB for revision. The changes proposed by PHMSA would have no effect on the calendar year 2017 data collection now in progress. The changes would be implemented when operators submit calendar year 2018 data early in calendar year 2019. The following information is provided for this information collection: (1) Title of the information collection; (2) OMB control number; (3) Current expiration date; (4) Type of request; (5) Abstract of the information collection activity; (6) Description of affected public; (7) Estimate of total annual reporting and recordkeeping burden; and (8) Frequency of collection.
