SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR Part 254, Oil-Spill Response Requirements for Facilities Located Seaward of the Coast Line. OMB Control Number: 1010–0091. Abstract: The Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA), requires that a spill-response plan be submitted for offshore facilities prior to February 18, 1993. The OPA specifies that after that date, an offshore facility may not handle, store, or transport oil unless a plan has been submitted. This authority and responsibility have been delegated to the Minerals Management Service (MMS). Regulations at 30 CFR 254 establish requirements for spill-response plans for oil-handling facilities seaward of the coast line, including associated pipelines. The MMS uses the information collected under 30 CFR part 254 to determine compliance with OPA by owners/operators. Specifically, MMS needs the information to: • Determine effectiveness of the spillresponse capability of owners/operators; • Review plans prepared under the regulations of a State and submitted to MMS to satisfy our requirements that they meet minimum requirements of OPA; • Verify that personnel involved in oil-spill response are properly trained and familiar with the requirements of the spill-response plans and to witness spill-response exercises; • Assess the sufficiency and availability of contractor equipment and materials; • Verify that sufficient quantities of equipment are available and in working order; • Oversee spill-response efforts and maintain official records of pollution events; and • Assess the efforts of owners/ operators to prevent oil spills or prevent substantial threats of such discharges. 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 part 251. Responses are mandatory or are required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency: Varies, but mostly on occasion. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 197 owners or operators of facilities and/or oil-spill response companies located in both State and Federal waters seaward of the coast line. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The currently approved annual reporting burden for this collection is 35,070 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.

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 paperwork 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 customary and usual business or private practices. We will summarize written responses to this notice and address them in our submission for OMB approval. As a result of your comments, we will make any necessary adjustments to the burden in our submission to OMB.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: 30 CFR Part 254, Oil-Spill Response Requirements for 
Facilities Located Seaward of the Coast Line.
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0091.
    Abstract: The Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as amended by 
the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA), requires that a spill-response 
plan be submitted for offshore facilities prior to February 18, 1993. 
The OPA specifies that after that date, an offshore facility may not 
handle, store, or transport oil unless a plan has been submitted. This 
authority and responsibility have been delegated to the Minerals 
Management Service (MMS). Regulations at 30 CFR 254 establish 
requirements for spill-response plans for oil-handling facilities 
seaward of the coast line, including associated pipelines.
    The MMS uses the information collected under 30 CFR part 254 to 
determine compliance with OPA by owners/operators. Specifically, MMS 
needs the information to:
     Determine effectiveness of the spill-response capability 
of owners/operators;
     Review plans prepared under the regulations of a State and 
submitted to MMS to satisfy our requirements that they meet minimum 
requirements of OPA;
     Verify that personnel involved in oil-spill response are 
properly trained and familiar with the requirements of the spill-
response plans and to witness spill-response exercises;
     Assess the sufficiency and availability of contractor 
equipment and materials;
     Verify that sufficient quantities of equipment are 
available and in working order;
     Oversee spill-response efforts and maintain official 
records of pollution events; and
     Assess the efforts of owners/operators to prevent oil 
spills or prevent substantial threats of such discharges.
    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 part 251. Responses are mandatory or are required to obtain or

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have 
identified no non-hour paperwork 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 non-hour paperwork 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
