SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR PART 204—ALTERNATIVES FOR MARGINAL PROPERTIES, Subpart C— Accounting and Auditing Relief. OMB Control Number: 1010–0155. Bureau Form Number: None. Abstract: The Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior is responsible for collecting royalties from lessees who produce minerals from leased Federal and Indian lands. The Secretary is required by various laws to manage mineral resources production on Federal and Indian lands, collect the royalties due, and distribute the funds in accordance with those laws. The MMS performs the royalty management functions for the Secretary. When a company or an individual enters into a lease to explore, develop, produce, and dispose of minerals from Federal or Indian lands, that company or individual agrees to pay the lessor a share (royalty) of the value received from production from the leased lands. The lease creates a business relationship between the lessor and the lessee. The lessee is required to report various kinds of information to the lessor relative to the disposition of the leased minerals. Such information is similar to data reported to private and public mineral interest owners and is generally available within the records of the lessee or others involved in developing, transporting, processing, purchasing, or selling of such minerals. The information collected includes data necessary to ensure that the royalties are accurately valued and appropriately paid. A response is required to obtain the benefit of auditing and accounting relief. Proprietary information submitted to MMS under this collection is protected, and no items of a sensitive nature are collected. Applicable Citations On August 13, 1996, Congress enacted Public Law 104–185—Aug. 13, 1996 (Federal Oil and Gas Royalty E:\FR\FM\03JNN1.SGM 03JNN1
