SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB regulations at 5 CFR 1320, which implement provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, require that interested members of the public and affected agencies be given an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8(d) and 1320.12(a)). This notice identifies an information collection that the BLM will be submitting to OMB for approval. The Paperwork Reduction Act 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. The BLM will request a 3-year term of approval for this information collection activity. Comments are invited on: (1) The need for the collection of information for the performance of the functions of the agency; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s burden estimates; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to minimize the information collection burden on respondents, such as use of automated means of collection of the information. A summary of the public comments will accompany our submission of the information collection requests to OMB. Before including your address, telephone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, be advised that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask in your comment to withhold from public review your personal identifying information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. The following information is provided for the information collection: Title: Geothermal Resource Leasing and Geothermal Resources Unit Agreements (43 CFR parts 3200 and 3280). Forms: • Form 3200–9, Notice of Intent to Conduct Geothermal Resource Exploration Operations; • Form 3260–2, Geothermal Drilling Permit; • Form 3260–3, Geothermal Sundry Notice; • Form 3260–4, Geothermal Well Completion Report; and • Form 3260–5, Monthly Report of Geothermal Operations. OMB Control Number: 1004–0132. Abstract: Various statutes (such as 30 U.S.C. 1001–1028) authorize the Secretary of the Interior to issue leases for the development and utilization of geothermal resources. The BLM implements these statutory authorities in accordance with regulations at 43 CFR parts 3200 and 3280. The information collected under these regulations enables the BLM to make decisions regarding geothermal leases and unit agreements. It also enables the BLM to monitor compliance with approvals that have been granted. Responses are required to obtain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: On occasion. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 760 lessees and applicants for leases. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: The currently approved annual burden for this collection is 10,137 hours.
