SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Historical Well Data Cleanup; Wells Without Assigned MMS API Numbers—NTL. OMB Control Number: 1010–0137. 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. The OCSLA at 43 U.S.C. 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.’’ VerDate Nov<24>2008 12:52 Feb 02, 2009 Jkt 217001 The MMS’s Historical Well Data Cleanup requests operators to supply missing data or corrected data for wells drilled prior to January 2000 that do not have an assigned API number. This notice announces our intention to request a 3-year extension for this information collection. The information we collect under this NTL, is missing data for wellbores that MMS has not assigned API numbers and other well data discovered as missing while completing the well database cleanup. We are not able to manage and utilize data from drilling operations accurately without the information for the missing wells. We will use the information to identify other well data (e.g., logs, surveys, tests) missing from our records, geologically map existing MMS data to the correct wellbore/ location, and correctly exchange information with the operators and industry. Our geoscientists can use the information to evaluate resources for lease sales for fair market value. With respect to safety concerns, we believe that there may be anywhere from 3,000 to 6,000 unidentified completed and abandoned wellbores (bypasses and sidetracks), some of which may contain stuck drill pipe or other materials. In approving permits and other operations in an area, it is important for us to know what may be adjacent to or near the vicinity of the activity we are approving to minimize the risk of blowouts, loss of well control, and endangerment to life, health, and the environment. This is particularly important as, over the years, the number of wells drilled constantly increases, thereby increasing the risk to adjacent activities if operators are not aware of what might be in the area. We will protect information respondents submit that is considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552), its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and 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: On occasion. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 130 Federal OCS oil, gas, and sulphur lessees. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: The currently approved annual reporting burden for this collection is 15,000 hours for approximately 6,000 wells, based on: (1) 0.5 hours to locate and copy a summary of drilling operations (e.g., scout tickets) for each well. PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (2) 2 hours to retrieve and analyze each well file and retrieve other missing data. There are no recordkeeping requirements. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-Hour Cost’’ Burden: We have identified no paperwork non-hour cost burdens 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: Before submitting an ICR to OMB, PRA section 3506(c)(2)(A) 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. Agencies must also estimate the ‘‘nonhour cost’’ burdens to respondents or recordkeepers resulting from the collection of information. Therefore, if you have costs to generate, maintain, and disclose this information, you should comment and provide your total capital and startup cost components or annual operation, maintenance, and purchase of service components. You should describe the methods you use to estimate major cost factors, including system and technology acquisition, expected useful life of capital equipment, discount rate(s), and the period over which you incur costs. Capital and startup costs include, among other items, computers and software you purchase to prepare for collecting information, monitoring, and record storage facilities. You should not include estimates for equipment or services purchased: (i) Before October 1, 1995; (ii) to comply with requirements not associated with the information collection; (iii) for reasons other than to provide information or keep records for the Government; or (iv) as part of E:\FR\FM\03FEN1.SGM 03FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 21 / Tuesday, February 3, 2009 / Notices customary and usual business or private practices.

OMB Control Number: 1024–0009. Expiration Date: 9/30/2009. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of information. Description of Need: Section 47 of the Internal Revenue Code requires that the Secretary of the Interior certify to the Secretary of the Treasury upon application by owners of historic properties for Federal tax benefits: (a) The historic character of the property, and (b) that the rehabilitation work is consistent with that historic character. The NPS administers the program with the Internal Revenue Service. NPS uses the Historic Preservation Certification Application to evaluate the condition and historic significance of buildings undergoing rehabilitation for continued use, and to evaluate whether the rehabilitation work meets the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. The Department of the Interior regulation 36 CFR Part 67 contains a requirement for completion of an application form. The information required on the application form is needed to allow the authorized officer to determine if the applicant is qualified to obtain historic preservation certifications from the Secretary of the Interior. These certifications are necessary in order for an applicant to receive substantial Federal tax incentives authorized by Section 47 of the Internal Revenue Code. These incentives include 20% Federal income tax credit for the rehabilitation of historic buildings and an income tax deduction for the donation of easements on historic properties. The Internal Revenue Code also provides 10% PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5945 Federal income tax credit for the rehabilitation of non-historic buildings built before 1936, and owners of nonhistoric buildings in historic districts must also use the application to obtain a certification from the Secretary of the Interior that their building does not contribute to the significance of the historic district before they claim this lesser tax credit for rehabilitation. The obligation to respond is required to obtain and retain benefits. Description of respondents: Individuals or households, businesses or other for-profit entities. Estimated average number of respondents: 4,000 per year. Estimated average number of responses: 4,000 per year. Frequency of Response: 1 per respondent. Estimated average time burden per respondent: 20 hours. Estimated total annual reporting burden: 80,000 hours per year. Comments are invited on: (1) The practical utility of the information being gathered; (2) the accuracy of the burden hour estimate; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information being collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden to respondents, including use of automated information collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Historical Well Data Cleanup; Wells Without Assigned MMS API 
Numbers--NTL.
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0137.
    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.
    The OCSLA at 43 U.S.C. 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.''
    The MMS's Historical Well Data Cleanup requests operators to supply 
missing data or corrected data for wells drilled prior to January 2000 
that do not have an assigned API number. This notice announces our 
intention to request a 3-year extension for this information 
collection.
    The information we collect under this NTL, is missing data for 
wellbores that MMS has not assigned API numbers and other well data 
discovered as missing while completing the well database cleanup. We 
are not able to manage and utilize data from drilling operations 
accurately without the information for the missing wells. We will use 
the information to identify other well data (e.g., logs, surveys, 
tests) missing from our records, geologically map existing MMS data to 
the correct wellbore/location, and correctly exchange information with 
the operators and industry. Our geoscientists can use the information 
to evaluate resources for lease sales for fair market value. With 
respect to safety concerns, we believe that there may be anywhere from 
3,000 to 6,000 unidentified completed and abandoned wellbores (bypasses 
and sidetracks), some of which may contain stuck drill pipe or other 
materials. In approving permits and other operations in an area, it is 
important for us to know what may be adjacent to or near the vicinity 
of the activity we are approving to minimize the risk of blowouts, loss 
of well control, and endangerment to life, health, and the environment. 
This is particularly important as, over the years, the number of wells 
drilled constantly increases, thereby increasing the risk to adjacent 
activities if operators are not aware of what might be in the area.
    We will protect information respondents submit that is considered 
proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552), its 
implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and 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: On occasion.
    Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 130 
Federal OCS oil, gas, and sulphur lessees.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Hour'' Burden: The 
currently approved annual reporting burden for this collection is 
15,000 hours for approximately 6,000 wells, based on:
    (1) 0.5 hours to locate and copy a summary of drilling operations 
(e.g., scout tickets) for each well.
    (2) 2 hours to retrieve and analyze each well file and retrieve 
other missing data.
    There are no recordkeeping requirements.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Non-Hour Cost'' Burden: We 
have identified no paperwork non-hour cost burdens 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: Before submitting an ICR to OMB, PRA section 
3506(c)(2)(A) 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

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.
    Agencies must also estimate the ``non-hour cost'' burdens to 
respondents or recordkeepers resulting from the collection of 
information. Therefore, if you have costs to generate, maintain, and
