ACTION: Notice and request for comments. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requests the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to extend an existing approval to collect helium sales information from Federal agencies and helium suppliers. BLM uses the In-Kind Crude Helium Sales Contract and nonform information from 43 CFR part 3195 to collect information. This information allows BLM to monitor reporting and recordkeeping of crude helium sales and purchases. DATES: You must submit your comments to BLM at the address below on or before August 21, 2006. ADDRESSES: You may mail comments to: Bureau of Land Management, (WO– 630), Eastern States Office, 7450 Boston Blvd., Springfield, Virginia 22153. You may send comments via Internet to: comments_washington@blm.gov. Please include ‘‘ATTN: 1004–0179’’ and your name and return address in your Internet message. You may deliver comments to the Bureau of Land Management, Administrative Record, Room 401, 1620 L Street, NW., Washington, DC 20036. All comments will be available for public review at the L Street address during regular business hours (7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: You may contact Connie H. Neely, Crude Helium Sales Analyst, on (806) 356– 1027 (Commercial or FTS). Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service on 1–800– 877–8330, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to contact Ms. Neely. 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, VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:26 Jun 20, 2006 Jkt 208001 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 burden of the collection of information 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 Helium Privatization Act of 1996 requires the Department of Defense, the Atomic Energy Commission, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and other Federal agencies to purchase major helium requirements from authorized contractors. These contractors must purchase an equivalent amount of crude helium from the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management. The In-Kind Crude Helium Sales Contract requires that contract holders supply the following information to BLM: (A) Section 3.3. requests reporting each quarter the deliveries made of refined helium. The section referes to Addendum B of the contract, which specifies providing the following: (1) Company name; (2) Address and contract number; (3) Name of the Federal agency to which helium sold; (4) Date of delivery; (5) Sale reference number; (6) Location of helium use; (7) Volume; and (8) Units of helium sold during the itemized sales for the quarterly report. BLM uses this information to track sales of refined helium and to determine the use of the helium. (B) Section 3.5 requires helium suppliers to notify BLM 14 days in advance of needing Federal helium in order to provide BLM sufficient time to deliver the helium. (C) Section 3.7 requires contractors to keep all pertinent documents and records available for BLM inspection. We use this information to audit the contractors and to determine whether or not helium sales were reported accurately. (D) Section 7.4 prohibits assigning the contract to another contractor without BLM’s prior approval. BLM also requires the following nonform information at 43 CFR part 3195: (A) Federal helium suppliers and buyers must report the total itemized quarterly deliveries of helium within 45 calendar days after the end of the previous quarter. (B) Federal helium suppliers must report the annual cumulative helium PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 delivery report by November 15 of each year. (C) The name of the company from which you purchased helium. (D) The amount of helium you purchased and the date it was delivered. (E) The helium use location. Based on our experience administering the activities, we estimate the public reporting burden is one hour for the contract and two hours for the non-form quarterly helium sales reports. We estimate 8 respondents will submit a contract once and quarterly provide helium sales information. We estimate 32 responses per year and a total annual burden of 96 hours. We will summarize all responses to this notice and send them to OMB when we request approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: June 9, 2006. Ted R. Hudson, Bureau of Land Management, Information Collection Clearance Officer.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requests the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to extend an existing approval to collect certain information from entities interested in the development of geothermal resources. BLM uses Form 3260–2, Geothermal Drilling Permit; Form 3260–3, Geothermal Sundry Notice; Form 3260– 4, Geothermal Well Completion Report; Form 3260–5, Monthly Report of Geothermal Operations; to collect this information under 43 CFR part 3200. This information allows BLM to approve proposed operations and to ensure compliance with terms and conditions of approved operations. We also collect non-form information to determine if a lessee is making diligent and bona fide efforts to utilize and produce geothermal resources. DATES: You must submit comments to BLM at the address below on or before August 21, 2006. BLM will not necessarily consider any comments received after the above date. ADDRESSES: You may mail comments to: Bureau of Land Management, (WO– 630), Eastern States Office, 7450 Boston Blvd., Springfield, Virginia 22153.

Persons who use a telecommunication device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) on 1–800–877– 8330, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to contact Ms. Gamble. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires BLM to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning a collection of information to solicit comments on: (a) Whether the proposed 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 burden of the collection of information 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 Geothermal Steam Act of 1970 (30 U.S.C. 1001 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to issue leases so that geothermal resources may be developed and used. The BLM allows geothermal leasing operations on Tribal lands under the authority of the Indian Mineral Development Act (25 U.S.C. 2101–2108). The BLM supervises operations of the leases granted under this authority by the regulations in 43 CFR subpart 3260. The regulations contain information collection requirements that we need to grant the lessees permits to perform specific operations and to report the completion and progress of such work. Specifically, the regulations require operators to submit the Geothermal Drilling Permit (form 3260–2); Geothermal Sundry Notice (Form 3260–3); Geothermal Well Completion Report (Form 3260–4); and Monthly Report of Geothermal Operations (Form 3260–5). The information the lessee of record, a designated operator, or an approved agent acting on behalf of the lessee or operator provides, allows BLM to conduct or modify operations under the terms and conditions of a Federal geothermal lease or an Indian geothermal contract. The information enables BLM to approve both geothermal explorations and modifications to existing wells. Without this information, BLM could not adequately evaluate activity and E:\FR\FM\21JNN1.SGM 21JNN1
