This preliminary list of issues may change based on your comments and our analysis. • the project crosses federal lands managed by the BLM in New Mexico; • the project crosses lands managed by New Mexico State Lands Trust; • one or more known cultural resources sites may be impacted by the project; and • sensitive plant and animal species may be affected by the project. Environmental Mailing List The environmental mailing list includes federal, state, and local government representatives and agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; Native American Tribes; other interested parties; and local libraries and newspapers. This list also includes all affected landowners (as defined in the Commission’s regulations) who are potential right-of-way grantors, whose property may be used temporarily for project purposes, or who own homes within certain distances of aboveground facilities, and anyone who submits comments on the project. Commission staff will update the environmental mailing list as the analysis proceeds to 6 The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation regulations are at Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 800. Those regulations define historic properties as any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure, or object included in or eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Standards of Conduct for Transmission Provider and Marketing Affiliates of Interstate Pipelines. OMB Control No.: 1902–0157. Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–592 information collection requirements with no changes to the current reporting requirements. Abstract: The Commission uses the information maintained and posted by the respondents to monitor the pipeline’s transportation, sales, and storage activities for its marketing affiliate to deter undue discrimination by pipeline companies in favor of their marketing affiliates. Non-affiliated shippers and other entities (e.g. state commissions) also use information to determine whether they have been harmed by affiliate preference and to prepare evidence for proceedings following the filing of a complaint. 18 CFR Part 358 (Standards of Conduct) Respondents maintain and provide the information required by part 358 on their internet websites. When the Commission requires a pipeline to post information on its website following a disclosure of non-public information to its marketing affiliate, non-affiliated shippers obtain comparable access to the non-public transportation information, which allows them to compete with marketing affiliates on a more equal basis. 18 CFR 250.16, and the FERC–592 Log/ Format This form (log/format) provides the electronic formats for maintaining information on discounted transportation transactions and capacity allocation to support monitoring of activities of interstate pipeline marketing affiliates. Commission staff considers discounts given to shippers in litigated rate cases. Without this information collection: • The Commission would be unable to effectively monitor whether pipelines are giving discriminatory preference to their marketing affiliates; and • non-affiliated shippers and state commissions and others would be unable to determine if they have been harmed by affiliate preference or prepare evidence for proceedings following the filing of a complaint. Type of Respondents: Natural gas pipelines. Estimate of Annual Burden:1 The Commission estimates the annual reporting burden and cost for the information collection as: FERC–592—STANDARDS FOR CONDUCT FOR TRANSMISSION PROVIDERS MARKETING AFFILIATES OF INTERSTATE PIPELINES amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES FERC 592 3 ... Number of respondents Annual number of responses per respondent Total number of responses Average burden & cost per response 2 Total annual burden hours & total annual cost Cost per respondent ($) (1) (2) (1) * (2) = (3) (4) (3) * (4) = (5) (5) ÷ (1) 85 1 85 116.62 hrs.; $9,212.98 ........ 9,913 hrs.; $783,127 ........... 9,212.98 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; 1 ‘‘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. 2 The estimates for cost per response are derived using the following formula: Average Burden Hours per Response * $79.00/hour = Average cost/ response. The figure is the 2018 FERC average hourly cost (for wages and benefits) of $79.00 (and an average annual salary of $164,820/year). Commission staff is using the FERC average salary because we consider any reporting requirements completed in response to the FERC–592 to be compensated at rates similar to the work of FERC employees. 3 The requirements for this collection are contained in 18 CFR part 358 and 18 CFR part 250.16.
