SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR 250, Subpart F, Oil and Gas Well-Workover Operations. OMB Control Number: 1010–0043. Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior (Secretary) to prescribe rules and regulations to administer leasing of the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease. Operations on the OCS must preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources in a manner that is consistent with the need to make such resources available to meet the Nation’s energy needs as rapidly as possible; to balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; to ensure the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Section 5(a) of the OCS Lands Act requires the Secretary to prescribe rules and regulations ‘‘to provide for the prevention of waste, and conservation of the natural resources of the Outer Continental Shelf, and the protection of correlative rights therein’’ and to include provisions ‘‘for the prompt and efficient exploration and development of a lease area.’’ These authorities and responsibilities are among those delegated to the Minerals Management Service (MMS) to ensure that operations in the OCS will meet statutory requirements; provide for safety and protection of the environment; and result in diligent exploration, development, and production of OCS leases. This information collection request addresses the regulations at 30 CFR 250, Subpart F, Oil and Gas WellWorkover Operations and the associated supplementary Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) intended to provide clarification, description, or explanation of these regulations. MMS District Managers use the information collected to analyze and evaluate planned well-workover operations to ensure that operations result in personnel safety and protection of the environment. They use this evaluation in making decisions to approve, disapprove, or to require modification to the proposed wellworkover operations. For example, MMS uses the information to: • Review log entries of crew meetings to verify that safety procedures have been properly reviewed. • Review well-workover procedures relating to hydrogen sulfide (H2S) to ensure the safety of the crew in the event of encountering H2S. • Review well-workover diagrams and procedures to ensure the safety of well-workover operations. • Verify that the crown block safety device is operating and can be expected to function and avoid accidents. • Verify that the proposed operation of the annular preventer is technically correct and will provide adequate protection for personnel, property, and natural resources. • Verify the reasons for postponing blowout preventer (BOP) tests, verify the state of readiness of the equipment and to ascertain that the equipment meets safety standards and requirements, ensure that BOP tests have been conducted in the manner and frequency to promote personnel safety and protect natural resources. Specific testing information must be recorded to verify that the proper test procedures were followed. • Assure that the well-workover operations are conducted on well casing that is structurally competent. We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR Part 2) and under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, ‘‘Data and information to be made available to the public.’’ No items of a sensitive nature are collected. Responses are mandatory. Frequency: On occasion, weekly, monthly, varies by section. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 130 Federal OCS lessees and operators. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: The currently approved annual reporting burden for this collection is 19,459 hours. The following chart details the individual components and respective hour burden estimates of this ICR. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider these to be usual and customary and took that into account in estimating the burden. Citation 30 CFR 253 Reporting requirement Hour burden 602 .................................................................. 602 .................................................................. Request exceptions prior to moving well-workover equipment. ........ Notify MMS of any rig mvoement within Gulf of Mexico (Form MMS–144). 1. Burden included in 1010– 0150.
