Download as PDF 20764 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 76 / Thursday, April 21, 2005 / Notices Crossing liquefied natural gas (LNG) deepwater port terminal would serve as the platform for facilities to offload and regasify LNG. The deepwater port terminal would include two concrete gravity-based LNG storage tanks, LNG carrier berthing provisions, LNG unloading arms, low and high pressure pumps, vaporizers, metering, utility systems, general facilities, and accommodations for up to 60 persons. The total net working capacity of the two integral LNG storage tanks would be 250,000 cubic meters. Pearl Crossing proposes to regasify the LNG using an open rack vaporization system. The terminal would have the ability to accommodate two LNG carriers having capacities ranging from 125,000 to 250,000 cubic meters per vessel. The terminal would be designed to have an average delivery of approximately 2.0 billion cubic feet per day of pipeline quality gas. The applicant proposes to install two 42-inch-diameter (1.1-meter) offshore pipelines that would originate at the terminal and traverse the Gulf of Mexico in a northwesterly direction to the high water mark near Johnsons Bayou in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. Each offshore pipeline would have a throughput capacity of 1.4 billion standard cubic feet per day (Bscfd) for a total peak capacity of 2.8 Bscfd. Thereafter, the pipelines would continue onshore to multiple gas delivery points in Louisiana and come under FERC jurisdiction as Pearl Crossing Pipeline LLC. Pearl Crossing Pipeline LLC would transport natural gas from the terminal/s two offshore pipelines to a metering and distribution station in Johnsons Bayou for delivery to several interstate and intrastate pipelines near the station. Once onshore, an additional 63.75 miles (102.6 kilometers) of 42-inch-diameter (1.1-meter) pipeline and five additional meter stations would be constructed. The pipeline would terminate near Starks, Louisiana. The project application includes a fabrication site where the applicant proposes to construct the concrete GBS and its integral components prior to towing the GBS out to the offshore LNG Terminal site. The DEIS evaluates three potential fabrication sites located within San Patricio and Nueces Counties, Texas, near Corpus Christi, Texas. Application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity The onshore portion of this project shoreward of the mean high water line falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and must receive a separate VerDate jul<14>2003 14:55 Apr 20, 2005 Jkt 205001 authorization from the FERC. As required by their regulations, FERC will also maintain a docket. The FERC docket numbers for this project are CP04–374–000, CP04–375–000 and CP04–376–000.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires that we provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning a collection of information to solicit comments on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper functioning of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimates of the information collection burden, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions we use; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the information collection burden on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. The Mineral Leasing Act of 1920, as amended (30 U.S.C. 181 et seq.). gives the Secretary of the Interior responsibility for oil and gas leasing on approximately 600 million acres of public lands and national forests, and private lands where the Federal Government retains the mineral rights. Congress passed the Federal Onshore Oil and Gas Leasing Reform Act of 1987 requiring BLM to offer all public lands that are available for oil and gas leasing by competitive oral bidding before accepting noncompetitive lease applications. The Department of the Interior Appropriations Act of 1981 (43 U.S.C. 6508) provides for the competitive leasing of the lands in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. The Geothermal Steam Act of 1970 (30 U.S.C. 1001–1025) authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to issue leases for geothermal development. The regulations (43 CFR 3100) outline procedures for obtaining a lease to explore for, develop, and produce oil and gas resources located on public lands. The regulations (43 CFR part 3200) outline procedures to issue geothermal leases and the exploration, development and utilization of Federally-owned geothermal resources. BLM needs the information requested on the two forms of process lease bids for oil and gas and geothermal resources and to complete environmental reviews required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. You must submit the forms to the proper BLM office. Form 3000–2 requires the name and address to identify the bidder. This allows BLM to VerDate jul<14>2003 14:55 Apr 20, 2005 Jkt 205001 ensure that the bidder meets the eligibility requirements in the regulations. The regulations require the bidder to submit one-fifth of the amount of the bid for a geothermal bid or the minimum acceptable bid for an oil and gas lease is the first year’s rental and administrative fee. Form 3200–9 requires the name and address of the entity who will conduct operations on the land. You must also submit the legal land description of the lands you plan to enter or disturb for your exploration/ operations and the starting and ending dates of operations. We use the starting and ending dates to determine how long the applicant/operator/contractor intends to conduct operations on the land. Based on BLM’s experience administering this program, we estimate the public reporting burden is 10 minutes for completing Form 3000–2 and 2 hours for completing Form 3200– 9. These estimates include the time spent on research, gathering, and assembling information, reviewing instructions, and completing the respective forms. BLM estimates 1,000 competitive bids for oil and gas and geothermal resources and 30 Notice of Intent to Conduct Geothermal Resource Exploration Operations are filed annually, with a total annual burden of 227 hours. Respondents vary from individuals and small businesses to large corporations. Any member of the public may request and obtain, without charge, a copy of BLM Forms 3000–2 or 3200–9 by contacting the person identified under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include them in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of a public record. Dated: April 15, 2005.
