I. Background

In order to fulfill its responsibilities under the Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93-275) and the Department of Energy Organization Act (Pub. L. 95-91), the Energy Information Administration (EIA) is obliged to carry out a central, comprehensive, and unified energy data and information program. As part of this program, EIA collects, evaluates, assembles, analyzes, and disseminates data and information related to energy resource reserves, production, demand, and technology, and related economic and statistical information relevant to the adequacy of energy resources to meet demands in the near and longer term future for the Nation's economic and social needs.

In the March 23, 2006, Federal Register (71 FR 14690), EIA announced its plan to discontinue the collection of Forms EIA-182 and EIA-856 after the data for July 2006 were collected. Given that no final decision has yet been made by the Congress regarding EIA's Fiscal Year 2007 budget, EIA has decided to continue collecting both forms monthly through the reporting of October 2006 data that is due to EIA by November 30, 2006, when the current Office of Management and Budget approval of all EIA petroleum marketing surveys is scheduled to expire.

II. Current Actions

EIA will continue collecting the Forms EIA-182, “Domestic Crude Oil First Purchase Report,” and EIA-856, “Monthly Foreign Crude Oil Acquisition Report,” though November 30, 2006.
