Proposed Agency Information Collection
EIA has submitted an information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for extension of the following Oil and Gas Reserves System Survey Forms pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995: Form EIA-23L, ``Annual Survey of Domestic Oil and Gas Reserves (Field Version)''; Form EIA-64A, ``Annual Report of the Origin of Natural Gas Liquids Production''; and Form EIA-23S, ``Annual Survey of Domestic Oil and Gas Reserves, (Summary Version)'' Form EIA-23L is the only form that EIA proposes to change. There are no proposed changes to Forms EIA-64A and EIA-23S. The proposed collection will be used to prepare electronic annual reports of U.S. proved reserves data that fulfill EIA's congressional mandate to provide accurate annual estimates of U.S. proved crude oil and natural gas reserves. The U.S. Government also uses the resulting information in EIA's reports to develop national and regional estimates of proved reserves of domestic crude oil and natural gas to facilitate national energy policy decisions.
