SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR 250, subpart E, Oil and Gas Well-Completion Operations. OMB Control Number: 1010–0067. Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, 43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., requires the Secretary of the Interior to preserve, protect, and develop oil and gas resources in the OCS 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; balance orderly energy resources development with protection of the human, marine, and coastal environment; ensure the public a fair and equitable return on OCS resources; and preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Section 1332(6) of the OCS Lands Act (43 U.S.C. 1332) requires 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, PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68817 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.’’ This authority and responsibility are among those delegated to BOEMRE. To carry out these responsibilities, BOEMRE issues regulations governing oil and gas and sulphur operations in the OCS. This ICR addresses the 30 CFR 250, subpart E, regulations implementing these responsibilities. BOEMRE analyzes and evaluates the information and data collected to ensure that planned well-completion operations will protect personnel and natural resources. They use the analysis and evaluation results in the decision to approve, disapprove, or require modification to the proposed wellcompletion operations. Specifically, BOEMRE uses the information to ensure: (a) Compliance with personnel safety training requirements; (b) crown block safety device is operating and can be expected to function to avoid accidents; (c) proposed operation of the annular preventer is technically correct and provides adequate protection for personnel, property, and natural resources; (d) well-completion operations are conducted on well casings that are structurally competent; and (e) sustained casing pressures are within acceptable limits. Subpart E was revised by rulemaking that became effective June 3, 2010 (75 FR 23582), and addresses the procedures and requirements necessary to monitor, report, and ameliorate sustained casing pressure (SCP) conditions. BOEMRE uses the information to determine whether production from wells with SCP continues to afford the greatest possible degree of safety under these conditions and to require corrective action in specified cases that pose an ongoing safety hazard. Responses are mandatory. No questions of a sensitive nature are asked. BOEMRE protects information considered proprietary according to Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR 2), and 30 CFR 250.197, ‘‘Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection.’’ Frequency: Varies by section, but is mostly on occasion or annual. Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal oil, gas, or sulphur lessees and/or operators. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 41,879 hours. The following chart E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1 68818 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 216 / Tuesday, November 9, 2010 / Notices details the individual components and estimated hour burdens. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that Citation 30 CFR 250 Subpart E respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their activities.

ACTION: Notice of intent and notice of meeting. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), advise the public that we intend to prepare a joint Federal/State Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), in coordination with the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), for the proposed Kauai Seabird Habitat Conservation Plan (KSHCP) and the expected applications from public and private entities on Kaua’i for incidental take permits (ITPs, or permits). The proposed KSHCP is being prepared under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA). The ITPs would authorize incidental take of the Federally endangered Hawaiian petrel (Pterodroma sandwichensis), the Federally threatened Newell’s (Townsends) shearwater (Puffinus auricularis newelli), and the bandrumped storm-petrel (Oceanodroma castro), a Federal candidate species that could become listed during the term of the permit (collectively, these three species are hereafter referred to as the ‘‘Covered Species’’). The DLNR is preparing the KSHCP under which numerous applicants are anticipated to apply for incidental take of the Covered Species due to adverse effects of light attraction and these birds colliding with utility lines and associated structures. We provide this notice to announce the initiation of a public scoping period during which we invite other agencies and the public to attend a public meeting and submit oral and written comments that provide suggestions and information on the scope of issues and alternatives to be addressed in the joint EIS.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bill Standley, Fish and Wildlife Biologist, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (see ADDRESSES above), telephone (808) 792– 9400. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Reasonable Accommodation Persons needing reasonable accommodation in order to attend and participate in the public meeting should contact Bill Standley, Fish and Wildlife Biologist, as soon as possible (see ADDRESSES), or at (808) 792–9400. In order to allow sufficient time to process requests, please call no later than one (1) week before the public meeting. Information regarding this proposed action is available in alternative formats upon request. Background Section 9 of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1538) and Federal regulations prohibit the take of fish and wildlife species listed as endangered or threatened. The term ‘‘take’’ means to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct. However, under section 10(a) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1539 (a)), we may issue permits to authorize incidental take of listed fish and wildlife species. Incidental take is defined as take that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, carrying out an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing ITPs for threatened and endangered species are found at 50 CFR 17.32 and 17.22. If the permits are issued, each permittee approved under the KSHCP would receive assurances E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: 30 CFR 250, subpart E, Oil and Gas Well-Completion 
Operations.
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0067.
    Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, 43 U.S.C. 
1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., requires the Secretary of the 
Interior to preserve, protect, and develop oil and gas resources in the 
OCS 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; 
balance orderly energy resources development with protection of the 
human, marine, and coastal environment; ensure the public a fair and 
equitable return on OCS resources; and preserve and maintain free 
enterprise competition. Section 1332(6) of the OCS Lands Act (43 U.S.C. 
1332) requires 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.'' This 
authority and responsibility are among those delegated to BOEMRE. To 
carry out these responsibilities, BOEMRE issues regulations governing 
oil and gas and sulphur operations in the OCS. This ICR addresses the 
30 CFR 250, subpart E, regulations implementing these responsibilities.
    BOEMRE analyzes and evaluates the information and data collected to 
ensure that planned well-completion operations will protect personnel 
and natural resources. They use the analysis and evaluation results in 
the decision to approve, disapprove, or require modification to the 
proposed well-completion operations. Specifically, BOEMRE uses the 
information to ensure: (a) Compliance with personnel safety training 
requirements; (b) crown block safety device is operating and can be 
expected to function to avoid accidents; (c) proposed operation of the 
annular preventer is technically correct and provides adequate 
protection for personnel, property, and natural resources; (d) well-
completion operations are conducted on well casings that are 
structurally competent; and (e) sustained casing pressures are within 
acceptable limits.
    Subpart E was revised by rulemaking that became effective June 3, 
2010 (75 FR 23582), and addresses the procedures and requirements 
necessary to monitor, report, and ameliorate sustained casing pressure 
(SCP) conditions. BOEMRE uses the information to determine whether 
production from wells with SCP continues to afford the greatest 
possible degree of safety under these conditions and to require 
corrective action in specified cases that pose an ongoing safety 
hazard.
    Responses are mandatory. No questions of a sensitive nature are 
asked. BOEMRE protects information considered proprietary according to 
Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing 
regulations (43 CFR 2), and 30 CFR 250.197, ``Data and information to 
be made available to the public or for limited inspection.''
    Frequency: Varies by section, but is mostly on occasion or annual.
    Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal 
oil, gas, or sulphur lessees and/or operators.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated 
annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 41,879 
hours. The following chart

[[Page 68818]]

details the individual components and estimated hour burdens. 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.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have 
identified no paperwork non-hour cost burdens associated with the 
collection of information.
    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: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et 
seq.)

[[Page 68819]]

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.
    To comply with the public consultation process, on April 12, 2010, 
we published a Federal Register notice (75 FR 18545) announcing that we 
would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the 
required 60-day comment period. In addition, Sec.  250.199 provides the 
OMB control number for the information collection requirements imposed 
by the 30 CFR 250 regulations. The regulation also informs the public 
that they may comment at any time on the collections of information and 
provides the address to which they should send comments. We have 
received no comments in response to these efforts.
    If you wish to comment in response to this notice, you may send 
your comments to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this 
notice. The OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the 
information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to 
ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by 
December 9, 2010.
    Public Availability of Comments: Before including your address, 
phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information 
in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment--
including your personal identifying information--may be made publicly 
available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold 
your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot 
guarantee that we will be able to do so.
