Notice of Proposed Reinstatement of Terminated Oil and Gas Lease TXNM 118757, New Mexico, 22624-22625 [2010-10010]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES 22624 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 82 / Thursday, April 29, 2010 / Notices MMS issued a Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS published in the Federal Register on November 13, 2008 (Vol. 73, No. 220, page 67201), and included a 45-day scoping period. No scoping meetings were announced at that time. The MMS decided to extend the comment period and made announcements in a press release and other media. On January 7, 2009, MMS published a notice in the Federal Register (Vol. 74, No. 4, page 727) extending the scoping comment period to 60 days. That comment period expired on January 13, 2009. Over 27,000 comments were received during this 60-day period. This Federal Register notice is not an announcement to hold the proposed lease sale, but it is a continuation of information gathering and the environmental review required by NEPA. The comments we receive during scoping help us form the content of the EIS and are summarized for Departmental decisionmakers prior to a decision on whether or not to hold a lease sale. The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that should be considered in the environmental analysis of oil and gas exploration, development, and production activities in the vicinity of the proposed lease area including alternatives, and guide the process for developing the EIS. For the proposed Lease Sale 220 EIS, the MMS has currently identified the following preliminary issues: air quality, biological resources, recreation, cultural resources, special management areas, land use, socioeconomic, and visual resources. The MMS will use and coordinate the NEPA commenting process to satisfy the public involvement process for Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (16 U.S.C. 470f) as provided for in 36 CFR 800.2(d)(3). Throughout the scoping process, Federal, state, tribal, and local governments and other interested parties have the opportunity to aid MMS in determining the significant issues, reasonable alternatives, and potential mitigating measures to be analyzed in the EIS, as well as the possible need for additional information. Possible alternatives for analysis within the proposed Lease Sale 220 EIS may represent a range of levels of activities, including: (1) Taking the proposed action (Sale 220); (2) taking no action (canceling the Sale); (3) implementing appropriate restrictions on oil and gas activities based on environmental resources that are present; or (4) defining temporal or spatial work windows to accommodate VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Apr 28, 2010 Jkt 220001 existing use of OCS space important to other critical national missions. Additional alternatives developed through scoping and NEPA evaluation will be considered. Statements on the proposed Lease Sale 220 EIS, both oral and written, will be received at the venues listed below. All persons wishing to speak will have the opportunity to do so. Time limits may be set on speakers to allow time for all speakers to participate. The following public scoping meetings are planned for proposed Lease Sale 220: • May 12, 2010—Hilton Norfolk Airport, 1500 N. Military Highway, Norfolk, Virginia 23502; one meeting, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. EST (This meeting will also accept comments on the G&G PEIS for the Mid- and South Atlantic OCS. This is the only one of these three meetings that will accept comments on both the proposed Lease Sale 220 EIS and the G&G PEIS for the Mid- and South Atlantic OCS.); • May 25, 2010—Princess Royale Oceanfront Hotel & Conference Center, 9100 Coastal Highway, Ocean City, Maryland 21842–2745; two meetings, the first from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST and the second from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. EST; • May 27, 2010—Elizabeth City State University Fine Arts Complex, 1704 Weeksville Road, Elizabeth City, North Carolina 27909; two meetings, the first from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST and the second from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. EST. In regards to the G&G PEIS for the Mid- and South Atlantic OCS, MMS issued a Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS published in the Federal Register on January 21, 2009 (74 FR 3636) and included a 45-day scoping period. No scoping meetings were announced at that time. On April 2, 2010, the MMS reopened the scoping period for an additional 45 days (ending May 17, 2010) and announced a series of public scoping meetings for late April 2010 (75 FR 16830). The comments received during both scoping periods will help MMS to prepare a PEIS evaluating the potential environmental effects of multiple G&G activities on the Mid- and South Atlantic OCS associated with renewable energy projects, oil and gas exploration, and marine minerals extraction. The purpose of the scoping is to identify significant resources and issues to be analyzed in the PEIS, and possible alternatives to the proposed action. Possible alternatives for analysis may represent a range of levels of activities from unrestricted to no seismic, mitigation (e.g., exclusion zones based on received levels of sounds; and limitations on certain combinations of activities in specific temporal/spatial circumstances). PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 MMS is now announcing through this Notice an additional and separate scoping meeting on the PEIS on May 12, 2010, in Norfolk, Virginia, which will also solicit public input on both the PEIS and proposed Lease Sale 220. Details of this meeting include: • May 12, 2010—Hilton Norfolk Airport, 1500 N. Military Highway, Norfolk, Virginia 23502; one meeting, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. EST.
