ACTION: Notice implementing fourth conservation helium sale. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The purpose of this action is to continue implementation of the terms of the Helium Privatization Act (HPA) of 1996 dealing with the disposal of the Conservation Helium Reserve. The HPA requires the Department of the Interior (DOI) to offer for sale, beginning no later than 2005, a portion of the Conservation Helium stored underground at the Cliffside Field, north of Amarillo, Texas. The DOI, in consultation with the private helium industry, has determined that private companies, with refining capacity along the crude helium pipeline, will need a supply of helium in excess of that available from their own storage accounts and that available from crude helium extractors in the region. Given the current market, Conservation Helium sold in this sale will cause minimal market disruption. This sale will be conducted in four parts, with one-fourth of the annual sale amount offered each quarter of Fiscal Year 2006. DATES: Submit bids for the first quarter sale and other documentation as required in Notice on or before November 7, 2005. Bids for the remaining three quarters must be submitted according to the following schedule: • Second Quarter—December 1, 2005, through December 31, 2005. • Third Quarter—March 1, 2006, through March 31, 2006. • Fourth Quarter—June 1, 2006, through June 30, 2006.

Individuals who use a telecommunications device for the deaf may call the Federal Information Relay Service at 1–800–877–8339 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., eastern time, Monday through Friday. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1.01 What Is the Purpose of the Sale? The purpose of this sale is to continue implementation of the terms of the HPA of 1996 dealing with the disposal of the Conservation Helium Reserve.

This is the fourth in a series of sales that the Department will conduct to dispose of the Conservation Helium stored underground at the Cliffside Field. The annual sales are being conducted in a manner intended to prevent pure helium market disruptions from occurring to end users; shortages of crude helium to pure helium refiners; and an oversupply of crude helium on the market for crude helium extractors. Subsequent sales may be adjusted as needed. 1.02 What Terms Do I Need To Know To Understand This Sale?
