(3) For multiple completions, a partial electric log showing the zones proposed for completion, if logs have not been previously submitted;

(4) All applicable information required in §250.731.

(5) When the well-completion is in a zone known to contain H2S or a zone where the presence of H2S is unknown, information pursuant to §250.490 of this part; and

(6) Payment of the service fee listed in §250.125.
