Proposed Revisions to Gas Distribution Annual Report (PHMSA F 7100.1-1)

[DOCKET NO. PHMSA-2017-0110]

PHMSA is preparing to request Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for revisions to the Natural Gas Distribution Annual Report form. The revisions will occur to the instructions and Part A of the annual report form. Please note the following proposed changes:

  • Instructions
    • Concerning Part G – Percent of Unaccounted for Gas, proposes to calculate percent lost and unaccounted for (LAUF) gas by dividing the LAUF volume by the gas consumption volume and allowing a negative value to be reported. The proposed change will harmonize PHMSA’s data with the Energy Information Administration (EIA) calculations.
  • Part A – Operator Information
    • PHMSA will remove the selection for “Other” as an Operator Type in Part A7 in addition to adding guidance in the instructions for the proper selection.

Interested parties are invited to submit comments on the website at by December 18, 2017. Identify the docket number, PHMSA–2017–0110, at the beginning of your comments. For a copy of PHMSA’s Notice from the Federal Register, contact Jessica Foley .
