§1210.01   What is the purpose of this subpart?

This subpart identifies information collections required by the Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR), in the normal course of operations. This information is submitted by various parties associated with Federal and Indian leases such as lessees, designees, and operators. The information collected meets the ONRR congressionally mandated accounting and auditing responsibilities relating to Federal and Indian minerals revenue management. Information collected regarding production, royalties, and other payments due the Government from activities on leased Federal or Indian land is authorized by the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act of 1982, as amended (30 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), as well as 43 U.S.C. 1334 and 30 U.S.C. 189, 359, 396, and 396d for oil and gas production; and by 30 U.S.C. 189, 359, 396, and 396d for solid minerals production.

§1210.02   To whom do these regulations apply?

The regulations apply to any person, referred to in this subpart as “you,” “your,” or “reporter/payor,” who is a lessee under any Federal or Indian lease for any mineral or who is assigned or assumes an obligation to report data or make payment to ONRR. The term reporter/payor may include lessees, designees, operators, purchasers, reporters, other payors, and working interest owners, but is not restricted to these parties. This section does not affect the liability to pay and report royalties as established by other regulations, laws, and the lease terms.

§1210.10   What are the OMB-approved information collections?

The information collection requirements identified in this subpart have been approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Detailed information about each information collection request (ICR), including CFR citations, is included on the ONRR Web site at http://www.onrr.gov/Laws__R__D/FRNotices/FRInfColl.htm-.

At the time you request a payor code, you must provide your Employer Identification Number (EIN) by submitting:

(1) An IRS Form W-9; or

(b) If you are already paying or reporting to ONRR but do not have an EIN, ONRR may request that you submit an IRS Form W-9 or equivalent certification containing the information required under paragraph (a)(2) of this section.

(c) The collection of this data is not subject to the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act because only information necessary to identify the respondent [5 CFR 1320.3(h)] is required.

(d) The EIN you provide to ONRR under paragraph (a) of this section:

(1) Means the taxpayer identification number (TIN) of an individual or other person (whether or not an employer), which is assigned under 26 U.S.C. 6011(b), or a corresponding version of prior law, or under 26 U.S.C. 6109;

(2) You must submit a completed Form ONRR-4430 for any product you sell from a remote storage site. If you sell from five or fewer remote storage sites, you must report sales from each site on separate Forms ONRR-4430. If you sell from more than five remote storage sites, you must total the data from all sites and report the summarized data on one Form ONRR-4430.

(3) Instructions for completing and submitting Form ONRR-4430 are available on our Internet reporting web site or you may contact us toll free at 1-888-201-6416.

(b) When to submit. (1) Unless your lease terms specify a different frequency for royalty payments, you must submit your Form ONRR-4430 on or before the end of the month following the month in which you produce any solid mineral, sell any solid mineral, or hold any solid mineral production in stockpile or inventory. However, if the last day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, your Form ONRR-4430 is due on the next business day.

(2) If your lease terms specify a different frequency for royalty payment, then you must submit your Form ONRR-4430 on or before the date on which you must pay royalty under the terms of the lease.

(4) If the information on a previously reported Form ONRR-4430 is no longer correct, you must submit a revised Form ONRR-4430 by the last day of the month in which you learn that the previously reported information is no longer correct, except when the last day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday. If the last day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, your revised Form ONRR-4430 is due on the first business day of the following month.
