ACTION: Notice of availability. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) announces the availability of the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Nationwide Automatic Identification System (NAIS) final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS). The NAIS is being implemented pursuant to the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002, and will include installation of Automatic Identification System (AIS) equipment and related support systems on and around communications towers or other structures along 95,000 miles of coastline and inland rivers. The project will enable detection and identification of vessels carrying (AIS) equipment to enhance maritime domain awareness. ADDRESSES: The ROD and final PEIS are available for viewing online at the DOT’s docket management Web site: http://dms.dot.gov under docket number 22837. A copy of the ROD and final PEIS can also be obtained on the NAIS project Web site: http://www.uscg.mil/ hq/g-a/AIS/ or by contacting Anita Allen, PhD, NAIS Environmental Manager, at 202–474–3292 or Anita.A.Allen@uscg.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this notice, VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:31 Nov 03, 2006 Jkt 211001 please call or e-mail Anita Allen, PhD, NAIS Environmental Manager, at 202– 475–3292 or Anita.A.Allen@uscg.mil. If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Ms. Andrea M. Jenkins, Program Manager, Docket Operations at 202–366–0271. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Purpose The Environmental Protection Agency issued a Notice of Availability of the final PEIS in the Federal Register on October 6, 2006 (71 FR 59105). As supported by the analysis in the PEIS, the USCG has decided to implement the proposed NAIS project consistent with the Preferred Alternative of using AIS based technology and a combination of the following coverage mechanisms: Establishing a combination of collocated and newly built shore-based RF sites for short-range AIS coverage; leasing commercial satellite services for longrange AIS coverage; and installing AIS equipment on existing offshore oil and gas platforms and data buoys for supplemental long-range coverage. Implementation of the proposed NAIS project through the Preferred Alternative would ensure that the USCG satisfies the purpose and need for NAIS. The Preferred Alternative implementation approach will offer siting flexibility that will help mitigate or minimize the potential for environmental impacts, and allow the USCG to maximize the use of existing infrastructure to meet coverage requirements.

OMB Control Number: 1010–0090. Bureau Form Number: Form MMS– 4377, Stripper Royalty Rate Reduction Notification. 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 Secretary also has a trust responsibility to manage Indian lands and seek advice and information from Indian beneficiaries. The MMS performs the royalty management functions and assists the Secretary in carrying out the Department’s trust responsibility for Indian lands. The Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act (FOGRMA) of 1982, 30 U.S.C. 1701 et seq., states in Section 101(a) that the Secretary ‘‘* * * shall establish a comprehensive inspection, collection, and fiscal and production accounting and auditing system to provide the capability to accurately determine oil and gas royalties, interest, fines, penalties, fees, deposits, and other payments owed, and collect and account for such amounts in a timely manner.’’ The persons or entities described at 30 U.S.C. 1713 are required to make reports and provide reasonable information as defined by the Secretary. Applicable public laws pertaining to mineral leases on Federal and Indian lands are located on our Web site at http://www.mrm.mms.gov/Laws_R_D/ PublicLawsAMR.htm. When a company or an individual enters into a lease to explore, develop, PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 paid appropriately. The Bureau of Land Management, the surface management agency for Federal onshore leases, granted royalty rate reductions to operators of stripper oil properties producing an average of less than 15 barrels of oil per eligible well per well-day for applicable sales periods from October 1, 1992 through January 31, 2006. See 43 CFR 3103.4–2. The purpose of these royalty rate reductions was to encourage continued production, provide an incentive for enhanced oil recovery projects, discourage abandonment of properties producing an average of less than 15 barrels of oil per eligible well per well-day, and reduce the operator’s expenses. The royalty rate for a stripper oil property was lower than the royalty rate reflected in the lease and thus reduced the amount of revenues paid to the Federal Government. Reporters used the Form MMS–4377 to notify MMS of royalty rate changes for production through January 31, 2006. Operators submitted an initial Form MMS–4377 when a new property qualified as a stripper oil property. Reporters submitted Form MMS–4377 to notify MMS of a royalty rate reduction that was lower than the initial royalty rate reduction on an existing stripper oil property (out-year notification). The decision to request an initial royalty rate reduction was voluntary; however, failure to timely submit the out-year notification resulted in the royalty rate change being denied. Although the benefits under 43 CFR 3103.4–2 terminated effective February 1, 2006, MMS continues to verify submitted notifications and sometimes requires the operator to submit an amended notification. Proprietary information submitted to MMS under this collection is protected, and no items of a sensitive nature are collected. The requirement to respond is E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1
