collection requirements with no changes to the current reporting 
requirements.
    Abstract: The Commission uses the information from the FERC-567 to

obtain accurate data on pipeline facilities and the peak capacity of 
these facilities. Additionally, the Commission validates the need for 
new facilities proposed by pipelines in certificate applications. By 
modeling an applicant's pipeline system, Commission staff utilizes the 
FERC-567 data to determine configuration and location of installed 
pipeline facilities; verify and determine the receipt and delivery 
points between shippers, producers and pipeline companies; determine 
the location of receipt and delivery points and emergency 
interconnections on a pipeline system; determine the location of 
pipeline segments, laterals and compressor stations on a pipeline 
system; verify pipeline segment lengths and pipeline diameters; justify 
the maximum allowable operating pressures and suction and discharge 
pressures at compressor stations; verify the installed horsepower and 
volumes compressed at each compressor station; determine the existing 
shippers and producers currently using each pipeline company; verify 
peak capacity on the system; and develop and evaluate alternatives to 
the proposed facilities as a means to mitigate environmental impact of 
new pipeline construction.
    18 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 260.8(a) requires each major 
natural gas pipeline with a system delivery capacity exceeding 100,000 
Mcf per day to submit by June 1 of each year, diagrams reflecting 
operating conditions on the pipeline's main transmission system during 
the previous 12 months ended December 31. These physical/engineering 
data are not included as part of any other data collection requirement.
    Type of Respondents: Applicants with a system delivery capacity in 
excess of 100,000 Mcf \1\ per day.

    \2\ 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, reference 5 Code of Federal Regulations 1320.3.

    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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The estimates for cost per response are derived using the 
following formula: 2018 Average Burden Hours per Response * $79 per 
Hour = Average Cost per Response. The hourly cost figure of $79 is 
the 2018 average FERC hourly cost for wages plus benefits. We assume 
for FERC-567 that respondents earn at a similar rate.
