Processing Plants (40 CFR Part 60, Subparts KKK and LLL) (Renewal)'' 
(EPA ICR No. 1086.10, OMB Control No. 2060-0120), to the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with

    Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General 
Provisions of the NESHAP (40 CFR part 60, subpart A), and any changes, 
or additions, to the Provisions are specified at 40 CFR part 60, 
subparts KKK and LLL. Owners or operators of the affected facilities 
must submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational 
changes, initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results. 
Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the 
occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the 
operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the 
monitoring system is inoperative. Reports are required semi-annually at 
a minimum.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of onshore 
natural gas processing plants.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subparts KKK and LLL).
    Estimated number of respondents: 577 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, semiannually and occasionally.
    Total estimated burden: 121,646 hours (annually). ``Burden'' is 
defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $11,967,480 (per year), includes $68,400 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease in burden from the 
OMB Inventory of Approved Burden. This change is attributed to a 
decrease in the number of affected onshore gas processing facilities 
subject to subparts KKK and LLL, which was due to the impact of a new 
NSPS rule, which is subpart OOOO. This ICR merges EPA ICR Numbers 
1086.09 and 2438.02 in order to resolve the inconsistencies with the 
required monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements under 
these rules, as well as to update the number of existing respondents, 
resulting from the issuing of the new subpart OOOO. New and modified 
sources after August 23, 2011, subject to subparts KKK and LLL will now 
report under subpart OOOO; therefore, this ICR only includes the burden 
for existing respondents that are subject to the subparts KKK and LLL.
    It should be noted that the wage rates in this ICR have been 
updated resulting in an increase of the cost of labor.
