    Type of Request: Three-year extension of these information 
collection requirements for all collections described below with no 
changes to the current reporting requirements. Please note that each 
collection is distinct from the other.
    Abstract: FERC-606 requires agencies and officials responsible for 
issuing, conditioning, or denying requests for federal authorizations 
necessary for a proposed natural gas project to report to the 
Commission regarding the status of an authorization request. This 
reporting requirement is intended to allow agencies to assist the 
Commission to make better informed decisions in establishing due dates 
for agencies' decisions.
    FERC-607 requires agencies or officials to submit to the Commission 
a copy of a decision or action on a request for federal authorization 
and an accompanying index to the documents and materials relied on in 
reaching a conclusion.
    The information collections can neither be discontinued nor 
collected less frequently because of statutory requirements. The 
consequences of not collecting this information are that the Commission 
would be unable to fulfill its statutory mandate under the Energy 
Policy Act of 2005 to:
     Establish a schedule for agencies to review requests for 
federal authorizations required for a project, and
     Compile a record of each agency's decision, together with

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, refer to 5 CFR 1320.3.
    \2\ The estimates for cost per response are derived using the 
formula: Average Burden Hours per Response * 79.00 per hour = 
Average Cost per Response. The hourly cost figure comes from the 
FERC average salary plus benefits of $164,820 per year (or $79.00/
hour). These estimates were updated in May 2018. This figure is 
being used because the staff thinks industry is similarly situated 
in terms of average hourly cost.
