SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–567, Gas Pipeline Certificates: Annual Reports of System Flow Diagrams and System Capacity. OMB Control No.: 1902–0005. Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–567 information 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 48299 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 1 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 per day. Estimate of Annual Burden:2 The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden for the information collection as: amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 FERC–567—GAS PIPELINE CERTIFICATES: ANNUAL REPORTS OF SYSTEM FLOW DIAGRAMS AND SYSTEM CAPACITY Natural Gas ......................................
