This information is used to evaluate supply conditions for crude oil and refined petroleum markets. Forms EIA–800, EIA–802, EIA–803, EIA–804, EIA–805 and EIA–809 are designed to provide an early, initial estimate of weekly petroleum refinery operations, inventory levels, and imports of selected petroleum products. The WPSRS is the only comprehensive weekly government source of data about the current status of petroleum supply and disposition in the upstream petroleum markets for the United States. Forms EIA–810, EIA–812, EIA–813, EIA–814, EIA–815, EIA–816, EIA–817, and EIA–819 are designed to provide statistically reliable and comprehensive monthly information on petroleum refining operations to EIA, federal agencies, and the private sector for use in forecasting, policy making, planning, and analysis. Form EIA–820 is an annual survey that provides data on refinery capacities, fuels consumed, natural gas consumed as hydrogen feedstock, and crude oil receipts by method of transportation for operating and idle petroleum refineries (including new refineries under construction), and refineries that shutdown during the previous year. (4a) Proposed Changes to Information Collection: on that form with Form EIA–819 to create a single survey instrument under Form EIA–819 to cover all biofuels (including renewable fuels not currently tracked on any EIA survey), fuel oxygenates (ETBE, MTBE), and nonrefinery producers of isooctane. The new Form EIA–819 collects consistent volumetric balance data on petroleum and biofuel blending at biofuel production plants and feedstock inputs for all biofuels. Form EIA–819 will also expand the scope of EIA biofuel data collection to include producers of renewable diesel fuel and other renewable fuels that are currently not collected. All facilities will report production capacity as well as receipts, production, input, shipments, beginning and ending stocks, as well as stocks in transit to the facility at the end of the report month. Part 9 collects consumption of feedstocks for production of biofuel and renewable fuels and annual fuels consumed at the facility. Form EIA–819 improves accuracy and consistency of biofuel and oxygenate production and blending including blending with petroleum fuels.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  This information collection request 
contains:
    (1) OMB Control Number No: 1902-0165;
    (2) Information Collection Request Title: Petroleum Supply 
Reporting System;
    The surveys included in this information collection request are:

 Form EIA-800 Weekly Refinery and Fractionator Report
 Form EIA-802 Weekly Product Pipeline Report
 Form EIA-803 Weekly Crude Oil Stocks Report
 Form EIA-804 Weekly Imports Report
 Form EIA-805 Weekly Bulk Terminal Report
 Form EIA-809 Weekly Oxygenate Report
 Form EIA-810 Monthly Refinery Report
 Form EIA-812 Monthly Product Pipeline Report
 Form EIA-813 Monthly Crude Oil Report
 Form EIA-814 Monthly Imports Report
 Form EIA-815 Monthly Bulk Terminal Report
 Form EIA-816 Monthly Natural Gas Plant Liquids Report
 Form EIA-817 Monthly Tanker and Barge Movement Report
 Form EIA-819 Monthly Biofuels, Fuels from Non-Biogenic Wastes, 
Fuel Oxygenates, Isooctane, and Isooctene Report
 Form EIA-820 Annual Refinery Report

    (3) Type of Request: Three-year extension with changes;
    (4) Purpose: The purpose of the PSRS is to collect detailed 
petroleum industry data to assess the nation's petroleum supply and 
energy data users' needs for credible, reliable, and timely energy 
information on production, receipts, inputs, movements, and stocks of 
crude oil, petroleum products, natural gas plant liquids, and related 
biofuels in the United States. This information is used to evaluate 
supply conditions for crude oil and refined petroleum markets. Forms 
EIA-800, EIA-802, EIA-803, EIA-804, EIA-805 and EIA-809 are designed to 
provide an early, initial estimate of weekly petroleum refinery 
operations, inventory levels, and imports of selected petroleum 
products. The WPSRS is the only comprehensive weekly government source 
of data about the current status of petroleum supply and disposition in 
the upstream petroleum markets for the United States. Forms EIA-810, 
EIA-812, EIA-813, EIA-814, EIA-815, EIA-816, EIA-817, and EIA-819 are 
designed to provide statistically reliable and comprehensive monthly 
information on petroleum refining operations to EIA, federal agencies, 
and the private sector for use in forecasting, policy making, planning, 
and analysis. Form EIA-820 is an annual survey that provides data on 
refinery capacities, fuels consumed, natural gas consumed as hydrogen 
feedstock, and crude oil receipts by method of transportation for 
operating and idle petroleum refineries (including new refineries under 
construction), and refineries that shutdown during the previous year.
    (4a) Proposed Changes to Information Collection:

Form EIA-800, Weekly Refinery and Fractionator Report

    Add new rows, under the column headings for Input; Production; and 
Ending Stocks, to separately report unfinished oils. This change 
separates data on unfinished oils that was previously included in total 
input. This provides detailed product coverage and improves data 
accuracy.

Form EIA-819, Monthly Biofuels, Fuels From Non-Biogenic Wastes, Fuel 
Oxygenates, Isooctane, and Isooctene Report

    EIA discontinued Form EIA-22M and combined the data elements 
collected on that form with Form EIA-819 to create a single survey 
instrument under Form EIA-819 to cover all biofuels (including 
renewable fuels not currently tracked on any EIA survey), fuel 
oxygenates (ETBE, MTBE), and non-refinery producers of isooctane. The 
new Form EIA-819 collects consistent volumetric balance data on 
petroleum and biofuel blending at biofuel production plants and 
feedstock inputs for all biofuels. Form EIA-819 will also expand the 
scope of EIA biofuel data collection to include producers of renewable 
diesel fuel and other renewable fuels that are currently not collected. 
All facilities will report production capacity as well as receipts, 
production, input, shipments, beginning and ending stocks, as well as 
stocks in transit to the facility at the end of the report month. Part 
9 collects consumption of feedstocks for production of biofuel and 
renewable fuels and annual fuels consumed at the facility. Form EIA-819 
improves accuracy and consistency of biofuel and oxygenate production 
and blending including blending with petroleum fuels. Form EIA-22M is 
discontinued since the same information that was reported on Form EIA-
22M will be collected on the revised Form EIA-819.

Form EIA-810, EIA-813, EIA-815

     Discontinue collection of storage capacity for September, 
but continue to collect storage capacity once each year as of March 31. 
EIA determined that storage capacity data collected once each year (as 
of March 31) are adequate for policy analysis and assessing market 
supply conditions.
     Rename the column heading idle storage capacity to 
temporarily out of service. EIA has found the phrase temporarily out of 
service to be more consistent than the term idle when describing 
storage capacity that is not in use at the time of reporting.

Forms EIA-810, EIA-812, EIA-815

    Discontinue collection of data for MTBE, ETBE, and other 
oxygenates. Stocks and other data for MTBE, ETBE, and other fuel 
oxygenates at refineries and terminals are no longer needed for EIA to 
assess U.S. and regional volumetric petroleum supply balances. 
Production of MTBE, ETBE, and other fuel oxygenates will continue to be 
collected on Form EIA-819.

Forms EIA-810, EIA-812, EIA-815

    Rename pentanes plus to natural gasoline. Pentanes plus and natural 
gasoline are equivalent. Renaming will make the forms and instructions

[[Page 29508]]

consistent with the rest of the EIA website.

Form EIA-812, Monthly Product Pipeline Report

     In Parts 3 and 4, discontinue collection of residual fuel 
stocks and delete the row for residual fuel (product code 511). The 
data has shown that residual fuel oil is a product not typically moved 
by pipeline.
     In Parts 3 and 4, discontinue collection of renewable fuel 
movements, except ethanol. EIA has found that inter-regional pipeline 
movements of these renewable fuels seldom occur and these data have 
limited utility for assessing fuel supply conditions.

Forms EIA-802, EIA-805, EIA-812, EIA-815, EIA-817

    Discontinue collection of stocks of refinery olefins. EIA 
determined that the collection of data on stocks of refinery olefins is 
no longer needed. Stocks of refinery olefins will continue to be 
collected on Forms EIA-800 and EIA-810 to maintain an overall refinery 
balance.

Form EIA-815, Monthly Bulk Terminal Report

    Add collection of stocks of ethane, propane, normal butane, 
isobutene, and natural gasoline natural gas liquids (NGL) held at 
petrochemical plants. Petrochemical plant operators are a special class 
of end user storage because they are able to function in ways that are 
similar to the commercial terminals surveyed by EIA. Including 
petrochemical plant storage improves data accuracy and improves market 
assessments of NGL supply availability.

Forms EIA-810, EIA-812, EIA-814, EIA-815, EIA-817

    Replace biofuel reporting categories identified on current surveys 
as biomass-based diesel fuel, other renewable diesel fuel, and other 
renewable fuels with the new categories biodiesel, renewable diesel 
fuel, and other renewable fuels and intermediate products. These 
changes clarify the products and improve the utility of U.S. and 
regional data.
