New Production Reporter Checklist
Perform the following tasks to assure your company is set up to report production for Federal and Indian leases/agreements correctly and timely.
Get an Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Qualification Number (if you'll be reporting offshore production)
Call any of the 3 Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Regional offices to apply for an OCS Qualification Number. You need the number before you can become an OCS bidder, lessee, assignee or operator. You need to wait to receive this number before moving onto requesting your ONRR operator number.
Have ONRR assign an Operator Number to your company
To obtain your ONRR Operator Number, to set up electronic reporting, and to receive an explanation of reporting requirements, email both contacts listed below:
Establish access to the ONRR WebCenter Portal
Have each person who will be filing or viewing reports accept the user policy and complete the request form below to get or change access to ONRR Data Warehouse and eCommerce. Each individual is responsible and accountable for actions taken under their User ID and may NOT allow new or replacement personnel to use a password assigned to them.
- Read and accept the Acceptable Use Policy for External Users.
- Complete and submit an online Electronic MRMSS Application Request Form (EMARF)
If you need help filling out the EMARF:

Establish your contact information with ONRR
Complete and mail at least one Form ONRR-4444 to ONRR to establish your official mailing and contact information. ONRR cannot enter or change contact information based on emails, phone calls, or other correspondence.
Form ONRR-4444 establishes address information for one or more correspondence types. Because our system allows one address/addressee for each correspondence type, you must submit separate forms for different addresses/addressees. New information will overwrite current information.
- Open the Form ONRR-4444.
- Open and follow the Instructions for Form ONRR-4444 to complete, print, sign, and mail the form to ONRR. Alternatively, email Form ONRR-4444 to email@example.com.
Send a Form W-9 to ONRR
You must complete, sign and mail a Request for Taxpayer ID, Form W-9, to establish your account with ONRR. Please read the instructions carefully.
