SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant
to the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq., and
5 CFR 1320.5, all information
collections, as defined in 5 CFR 1320.3,
require approval by OMB. ONRR may
not conduct or sponsor, and you are not
required to respond to, a collection of
information unless it displays a
currently valid OMB control number.
As part of ONRR’s continuing effort to
reduce paperwork and respondent
burdens, ONRR is inviting the public
and other Federal agencies to comment
on new, proposed, revised, and
continuing collections of information in
accordance with the PRA and 5 CFR
1320.8(d)(1). This helps ONRR to assess
the impact of its information collection
requirements and minimize the public’s
reporting burden. It also helps the
public understand ONRR’s information
collection requirements and provide the
requested data in the desired format.
ONRR is especially interested in
public comments addressing the
following:
(1) Whether the collection of
information is necessary for the proper
performance of the functions of the
agency, including whether the
information will have practical utility;
(2) The accuracy of ONRR’s estimate
of the burden for this collection of
information, including the validity of
the methodology and assumptions used;

(3) Ways to enhance the quality,
utility, and clarity of the information to
be collected; and
(4) How might the agency minimize
the burden of the collection of
information on those who are to
respond, including through the use of
appropriate automated, electronic,
mechanical, or other technological
collection techniques or other forms of
information technology, e.g., permitting
electronic submission of response.
Comments that you submit in
response to this notice are a matter of
public record. ONRR will include or
summarize each comment in its request
to OMB to approve this ICR. Before
including your address, phone number,
email address, or other personal
identifying information in your
comment, you should be aware that
your entire comment—including your
personal identifying information—may
be made publicly available at any time.
While you can ask ONRR in your
comment to withhold your personal
identifying information from public
review, ONRR cannot guarantee that it
will be able to do so.
Abstract: (a) General Information: The
Federal Oil and Gas Royalty
Management Act of 1982 (‘‘FOGRMA’’)
directs the Secretary of the Interior
(‘‘Secretary’’) to ‘‘establish a
comprehensive inspection, collection
and fiscal and production accounting
and auditing system to provide the
capability to accurately determine oil
and gas royalties, interest, fines,
penalties, fees, deposits, and other
payments owed, and to collect and
account for such amounts in a timely
manner.’’ See 30 U.S.C. 1711. ONRR
performs these and other mineral
revenue management responsibilities for
the Secretary. See U.S. Department of
the Interior Departmental Manual, 112
DM 34.1 (Sept. 9, 2020). ONRR uses the
information collected in this ICR to
ensure that a lessee properly pays
royalty and other mineral revenues due
on solid and geothermal resources
produced from Federal and Indian
lands. ONRR also uses these forms for
lessees to claim a coal washing and/or
transportation allowance. ONRR shares
the data with the Bureau of Land
Management, Bureau of Indian Affairs,
and Tribal and State governments for
their land and lease management
responsibilities. The requirement to
report accurately and timely is
mandatory. Please refer to the chart for
all reporting requirements and
associated burden hours.
(b) Information Collections: This ICR
covers the paperwork requirements

for the last three years, there is a
decrease of 504 in estimated annual
burden hours).
Estimated Completion Time per
Response: The average completion time
is 24.31 minutes per response. The

maintenance and the filing of forms
ONRR–4430 and ONRR–4440 are
