    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 
    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.
