Proposed Agency Information Collection
EIA invites public comment on the proposed collection of information for the new Form EIA-915, ``Monthly Gas Processing and Liquids Report'' that EIA is developing for submission to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. This new form would replace Form EIA-64A, Annual Report of the Origin of Natural Gas Liquids, and Form EIA-816, Monthly Natural Gas Liquids Report, as well as obtain crucial data elements that were lost with the recent termination of the Form EIA-895, Annual Quantity and Value of Natural Gas Production Report. With the implementation of the proposed Form EIA-915, the Form EIA- 816 will be terminated on Jan 31, 2013 (after collecting monthly data for December 2012), and Form EIA-64A will be terminated in 2014 (after collecting annual data for 2012). Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
