Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Natural Gas Transmission and Storage (40 CFR part 63, subpart HHH) applies to existing facilities and new facilities that are major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) and that either transport or store natural gas prior to entering the pipeline to a local distribution company or to a final end user (if there is no local distribution company). New respondents include those that commenced construction, or reconstruction after the date of proposal of the initial rule and of the 2012 rule amendments. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to NESHAP standards.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Natural gas transport and storage facilities.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart HHH).

Estimated number of respondents: 37 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 2,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $205,000 (per year), which includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 391 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This is due to a correction in burden estimates and the consolidation of 2060-0670 with this ICR, as well as the rounding of estimates.
