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.

This includes drilling and other well operations and engineering data for individual well production and injection. The lessee also reports any environmental monitoring conducted. The lessee may request a lease extension beyond the primary term by drilling, diligent efforts, production of byproducts, and unit commitment. We use the non-form information to determine if a lessee qualifies to extend its geothermal lease. The lessee submits the following non-form reports under 43 CFR subpart 3208: (1) Diligent Efforts Report; (2) Bona Fide Efforts Report; and (3) Significant Expenditures Report. Based on our experience administering the activities, we estimate it takes from 1 to 10 hours per response to complete the required information, depending on which form or report the respondent submits.

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 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

engineering data for individual well production and injection. The 
lessee also reports any environmental monitoring conducted.
    The lessee may request a lease extension beyond the primary term by 
drilling, diligent efforts, production of byproducts, and unit 
commitment. We use the non-form information to determine if a lessee 
qualifies to extend its geothermal lease. The lessee submits the 
following non-form reports under 43 CFR subpart 3208:

    (2) Bona Fide Efforts Report; and
    (3) Significant Expenditures Report.
    Based on our experience administering the activities, we estimate 
it takes from 1 to 10 hours per response to complete the required 
information, depending on which form or report the respondent submits. 
Respondents are lessees and operators of Federal geothermal leases and 
Indian geothermal contracts subject to BLM oversight. We estimate 835 
responses per year and a total annual burden of 1,850 hours.
    BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include them in 
the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of
