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 manage the mineral resources of the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-use and easement, and pipeline right-ofway. 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) states 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 PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63017 occurrences which may cause damage to the environment or to property, or endanger life or health.’’ Section 1334(a)(8) requires that regulations prescribed by the Secretary include provisions ‘‘for compliance with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards [NAAQS] pursuant to the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq.), to the extent that activities authorized under this Act significantly affect the air quality of any State.’’ Section 1843(b) calls for ‘‘regulations requiring all materials, equipment, tools, containers, and all other items used on the Outer Continental Shelf to be properly color coded, stamped, or labeled, wherever practicable, with the owner’s identification prior to actual use.’’ Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart C.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart C, Pollution Prevention and 
Control.
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0057.
    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 manage the mineral resources of the OCS. Such rules and 
regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, 
right-of-use and easement, and pipeline right-of-way. 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) states 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.'' Section 
1334(a)(8) requires that regulations prescribed by the Secretary 
include provisions ``for compliance with the National Ambient Air 
Quality Standards [NAAQS] pursuant to the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7401 
et seq.), to the extent that activities authorized under this Act 
significantly affect the air quality of any State.'' Section 1843(b) 
calls for ``regulations requiring all materials, equipment, tools, 
containers, and all other items used on the Outer Continental Shelf to 
be properly color coded, stamped, or labeled, wherever practicable, 
with the owner's identification prior to actual use.''
    Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR 
Part 250, Subpart C. Responses are mandatory. No questions of a 
sensitive nature are asked. The MMS protects information considered 
proprietary according to 30 CFR 250.197, Data and information to be 
made available to the public or for limited inspection, and the Freedom 
of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 
CFR 2).
    The MMS OCS Regions collect information required under part 250, 
subpart C, to ensure that:
     There is no threat of serious, irreparable, or immediate 
damage to the marine environment and to identify potential hazards to 
commercial fishing caused by OCS oil and gas exploration, development, 
and production activities;
     The operator records the location of items lost overboard 
to aid in recovery during site clearance activities on the lease;
     Operations are conducted according to all applicable 
regulations, permit conditions and requirements, and conducted in a 
safe and workmanlike manner;
     OCS oil and gas operations minimize air pollution of the 
OCS and adjacent onshore areas and comply with the required emission 
levels;
     A data baseline is established for the meteorological 
conditions in frontier areas of the OCS to determine that offshore 
facilities and operational practices can withstand the expected 
environmental forces in an area;
     Discharge or disposal of drill cuttings, sand, and other 
well solids, including those containing naturally occurring radioactive 
materials (NORM), are properly handled for the protection of OCS 
workers and the environment; and
     Facilities are inspected daily for the prevention of 
pollution, and problems observed are corrected.

    For the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region (GOMR), this ICR also addresses 
the following non-routine information collection:
     The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated 
National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone, fine (i.e., < 
2.5 micron) particulate matter (PM2.5), and regulations for 
regional haze. Air quality related information will be needed to 
address any new or outstanding NAAQS and regional haze regulations. In 
preparation for usage by States and regional planning organizations, 
affected respondents are being required to collect and report air 
pollutant emissions data for OCS activities in the GOMR for the 2008 
calendar year. This data will be used in future regional air quality 
modeling in support of revisions to State Implementation Plans and 
other air quality regulations. OCS lessees and operators are being 
required to collect these emissions data during the period of 1/1/08 to 
12/31/08 and report the data to MMS in 2009.
    Frequency: On occasion, daily.
    Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 130 
potential Federal oil, gas, and sulphur lessees and/or operators and 17 
states.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Hour'' Burden: The 
estimated annual hour burden for this information collection is a total 
of 198,866 hours. The following chart details the individual components 
and estimated hour burdens. 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.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Non-Hour Cost'' Burden: We 
have identified no paperwork non-hour cost burdens associated with this 
collection of information.
    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 May 28, 2008, we 
published a Federal Register notice (73 FR 30625) 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 the 30 CFR 250 regulations and forms. 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 
November 21, 2008.
    Public Availability of Comments: 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 personal identifying information from public review, we cannot 
guarantee that we will be able to do so.
