Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-use and easement, and pipeline right-ofway. Operations on the OCS must preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources 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; to balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; to ensure the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Section 1332(6) states 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.’’ Section 1334(a)(8) requires that regulations prescribed by the Secretary include provisions ‘‘for compliance with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards [NAAQS] pursuant to the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq.), to the extent that activities authorized under this Act significantly affect the air quality of any State.’’ Section 1843(b) calls for ‘‘regulations requiring all materials, equipment, tools, containers, and all other items used on the Outer Continental Shelf to be properly color coded, stamped, or labeled, wherever practicable, with the owner’s identification prior to actual use.’’ This is a routine information collection request (ICR) concerning the regulations at 30 CFR part 250, subpart C, Pollution Prevention and Control. It also covers the related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that BOEMRE issues to clarify and provide additional guidance on some aspects of the regulations.

Responses are mandatory. Frequency: On occasion, monthly, or annually, daily for inspection recordkeeping; varies by section. E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM 30JNN1
