SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Form MMS–144, Rig Movement Notification Report. Form: Form MMS–144. OMB Control Number: 1010–0150. 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 1332(6) of the Act requires that ‘‘operations in the [O]uter Continental Shelf should be conducted in a safe manner by well-trained personnel using technology, precautions, and techniques sufficient to prevent or minimize the likelihood of blowouts, loss of well control, fires, spillages, physical obstruction to other users of the waters or subsoil and seabed, or other occurrences which may cause damage to the environment or to property, or endanger life or health.’’ This ICR concerns the regulations in 30 CFR 250 Subparts D, E, and F, specifically sections 403(c), 502, and 602, on the movement of drilling, completion, and workover rigs and related equipment on and off an offshore platform or from well to well on the same offshore platform. The requirement for operators to notify MMS of rig movements is only specifically stated in § 250.403(c). However, because of the increased volume of activity in the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region (GOMR) and because the GOMR needs accurate and up-to-date information on rig locations for inspection planning, it has been standard procedure to require this notification as a condition of approval for drilling, well workover, recompletion, or abandonment operations (§§ 250.502 and 250.602). The MMS District Offices use the information reported to ascertain the precise arrival and departure of all rigs in OCS waters. The accurate location of these rigs is necessary to better facilitate VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:52 Feb 15, 2008 Jkt 214001 the scheduling of inspections by MMS personnel. 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 or for limited inspection.’’ No items of a sensitive nature are collected. Responses are mandatory. Frequency: The frequency is on occasion. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 130 Federal OCS oil and gas lessees. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: We estimate respondents will average 6 minutes to fill out and complete Form MMS–144 and there will be 1,870 annual responses. The total annual estimate is 187 burden hours. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-Hour Cost’’ Burden: We have identified no ‘‘nonhour cost’’ burdens associated for this collection. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated to respond. Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) requires each agency ‘‘* * * to provide notice * * * and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information * * *’’ Agencies must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. To comply with the public consultation process, on July 17, 2007, we published a Federal Register notice (72 FR 39074) announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day comment period. In addition, § 250.199 provides the OMB control number for the information collection requirements imposed by PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 form MMS–144. The regulation also informs the public that they may comment at any time on the collections of information and provides the address to which they should send comments. We have received no comments in response to these efforts. If you wish to comment in response to this notice, you may send your comments to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this notice. The OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by March 20, 2008. Public Comment Procedure: Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Form MMS-144, Rig Movement Notification Report.
    Form: Form MMS-144.
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0150.
    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 1332(6) 
of the Act requires that ``operations in the [O]uter Continental Shelf 
should be conducted in a safe manner by well-trained personnel using 
technology, precautions, and techniques sufficient to prevent or 
minimize the likelihood of blowouts, loss of well control, fires, 
spillages, physical obstruction to other users of the waters or subsoil 
and seabed, or other occurrences which may cause damage to the 
environment or to property, or endanger life or health.''
    This ICR concerns the regulations in 30 CFR 250 Subparts D, E, and 
F, specifically sections 403(c), 502, and 602, on the movement of 
drilling, completion, and workover rigs and related equipment on and 
off an offshore platform or from well to well on the same offshore 
platform. The requirement for operators to notify MMS of rig movements 
is only specifically stated in Sec.  250.403(c). However, because of 
the increased volume of activity in the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region 
(GOMR) and because the GOMR needs accurate and up-to-date information 
on rig locations for inspection planning, it has been standard 
procedure to require this notification as a condition of approval for 
drilling, well workover, recompletion, or abandonment operations 
(Sec. Sec.  250.502 and 250.602).
    The MMS District Offices use the information reported to ascertain 
the precise arrival and departure of all rigs in OCS waters. The 
accurate location of these rigs is necessary to better facilitate the 
scheduling of inspections by MMS personnel.
    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 
or for limited inspection.'' No items of a sensitive nature are 
collected. Responses are mandatory.
    Frequency: The frequency is on occasion.
    Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 130 
Federal OCS oil and gas lessees.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Hour'' Burden: We estimate 
respondents will average 6 minutes to fill out and complete Form MMS-
144 and there will be 1,870 annual responses. The total annual estimate 
is 187 burden hours.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Non-Hour Cost'' Burden: We 
have identified no ``non-hour cost'' burdens associated for this 
collection.
    Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) 
provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of 
information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 
Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated 
to respond.
    Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et 
seq.) requires each agency ``* * * to provide notice * * * and 
otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies 
concerning each proposed collection of information * * *'' Agencies 
must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the 
proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to 
perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) 
evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, 
usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) 
minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
    To comply with the public consultation process, on July 17, 2007, 
we published a Federal Register notice (72 FR 39074) announcing that we 
would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the 
required 60-day comment period. In addition, Sec.  250.199 provides the 
OMB control number for the information collection requirements imposed 
by form MMS-144. The regulation also informs the public that they may 
comment at any time on the collections of information and provides the 
address to which they should send comments. We have received no 
comments in response to these efforts.
    If you wish to comment in response to this notice, you may send 
your comments to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this 
notice. The OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the 
information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to 
ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by 
March 20, 2008.
    Public Comment Procedure: Before including your address, phone 
number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in 
your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment--including 
your personal identifying information--may be made publicly available 
at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your
