Download as PDF 64349 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 201 / Tuesday, October 19, 2010 / Notices the report as a result of the Deepwater Horizon accident and subsequent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. These events highlight the importance of ensuring safe operations on the OCS. The information to be collected is necessary for BOEMRE to assess safety equipment; ensure the OCS is managed in a safe manner that includes considering available environmental information and implementing best available and safest technology. BOEMRE will use the information collected to evaluate each operator to ensure compliance to BOEMRE regulations, review documentation for corrective action, and assess each risk analysis of deepwater drilling. 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), under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection, and 30 CFR 252, OCS Oil and Gas Information Program. No items of a sensitive nature are collected. Responses are mandatory. Frequency: On occasion. Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal oil, gas, or sulphur lessees and/or operators. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The currently approved annual reporting burden for this collection is 9,028 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. Hour burden BOP Certification Requirements for Floating Drilling Operations.—Submit independent third party (ITP) physical inspection and design review of BOP in accordance with OEM specs and standards [will cost approximately $25,000 to $250,000 depending on size etc., average cost = $112,500]. Include description of the ITP’s qualifications. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES NTL No. 2010–N05—Reporting requirement $112,500 per third-party physical inspection and design reviews— 30 mins. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have identified one non-hour paperwork cost burdens for this collection. The non-hour cost burden is $112,500 for each third party physical inspection and design review. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The applicant, Nextlight Renewable Power, LLC, requested a right-of-way (ROW) authorization to construct, operate, maintain and decommission a 400megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant and facilities. The Notice of Availability (NOA) for the Draft EIS analyzing impacts of the project and alternatives was released for public comment on April 16, 2010 (75 FR 19990). Four hundred eighty one comments were received on the Draft EIS. The comments were incorporated, where appropriate, to clarify the analysis presented in the Final EIS. The Environmental Protection Agency published the NOA for the Final EIS in the Federal Register on Friday, September 10, 2010 (75 FR 55326). The Final EIS analyzes 3 alternatives: A No Action Alternative, the Proposed Action, and a Modified Site Layout Alternative. These alternatives were shaped in part by comments received from the public and internal BLM review. Alternative 1—No Action Alternative. Under this alternative, the BLM would deny a ROW for construction, operation, maintenance, and decommission of a 400–MW solar photovoltaic power plant on public lands administered by the BLM. Alternative 2—Proposed Action. The Proposed Action Alternative is the construction, operation, maintenance and decommission of a solar facility utilizing passive PV technology. The project facilities would be constructed in 3 separate phases totaling 400–MW with a total surface disturbance of 2,967 acres. Phase 1 consists of a 60–MW direct current (50–MW alternating current) facility and is independent of the facilities identified in Phase 2 and Phase 3, which are inter-dependant facilities. Each facility component would be constructed as power purchase agreements and transmission infrastructure is in place and available to bring generated power to the market. Drainage controls would consist of a series of earthen drainage control berms that would contain surface runoff flows to existing primary drainages (storm water flow corridors) across the site. Alternative 3—Modified Site Layout Alternative. The Modified Site Layout E:\FR\FM\19OCN1.SGM 19OCN1
