ACTION: Notice of the availability of environmental documents prepared for OCS mineral proposals by the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region. SUMMARY: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE), in accordance with Federal Regulations that E:\FR\FM\01JYN1.SGM 01JYN1 38674 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 127 / Friday, July 1, 2011 / Notices implement the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), announces the availability of NEPA-related SiteSpecific Environmental Assessments (SEA) and Findings of No Significant Impact (FONSI), prepared by BOEMRE for the following oil-, gas-, and mineralrelated activities proposed on the Gulf of Mexico. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Public Information Unit, Information Services Section at the number below. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement, Gulf of Mexico OCS Region, Attention: Public Information Office (MS 5034), 1201 Elmwood Park Boulevard, Room 250, New Orleans, Louisiana 70123–2394, or by calling 1–800–200–GULF. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BOEMRE prepares SEAs and FONSIs for proposals that relate to exploration, development, production, and transport of oil, gas, and mineral resources on the Federal OCS. These SEAs examine the potential environmental effects of activities described in the proposals and present BOEMRE conclusions regarding the significance of those effects. Environmental Assessments are used as a basis for determining whether or not approval of the proposals constitutes a major Federal action that significantly affects the quality of the human environment in accordance with NEPA Section 102(2)(C). A FONSI is prepared in those instances where BOEMRE finds that approval will not result in significant effects on the quality of the human environment. The FONSI briefly presents the basis for that finding and includes a summary or copy of the SEA. This notice constitutes the public notice of availability of environmental documents required under the NEPA Regulations. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES6 Activity/operator Location Hunt Oil Company, Structure Removal, SEA ES/SR 11–001.

ACTION: Notice of Availability (NOA) of a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) and Public Meetings. Authority: This NOA is published pursuant to the regulations (40 CFR 1503) implementing the provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq. (1988)). BOEMRE has prepared a Draft SEIS on an oil and gas lease sale tentatively scheduled in mid-2012 for CPA consolidated Lease Sale 216/222, which is the final CPA lease sale in the 2007–2012 5-Year OCS Program. The proposed sale is in the Gulf of Mexico’s CPA off the States of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. This Draft SEIS updates the environmental and socioeconomic analyses for the CPA Lease Sale 216/222, originally evaluated in the Gulf of Mexico OCS Oil and Gas Lease Sales: 2007–2012; WPA Sales 204, 207, 210, 215, and 218; Central Planning Area (CPA) Sales 205, 206, 208, 213, 216, and 222, Final EIS (OCS EIS/EA MMS 2007–018) (Multisale EIS), completed in April 2007. This Draft mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES6 SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:54 Jun 30, 2011 Jkt 223001 SEIS also updates the environmental and socioeconomic analyses for the CPA Lease Sale 216/222 in the GOM OCS Oil and Gas Lease Sales: 2009–2012; CPA Sales 208, 213, 216, and 222; WPA Sales 210, 215, and 218; Final Supplemental EIS (OCS EIS/EA MMS 2008–041) (2009–2012 SEIS), completed in September 2008. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BOEMRE developed the Draft SEIS for CPA Lease Sale 216/222 to consider new information made available since completion of the Multisale EIS and 2009–2012 SEIS, including information concerning the Deepwater Horizon event and spill and new regulatory requirements. This Draft SEIS provides updates on the baseline conditions and potential environmental effects of oil and natural gas leasing, exploration, development, and production in the CPA. BOEMRE conducted an extensive search for new information from scientific journals; interviews with personnel from academic institutions; Federal, State, and local agencies; and various other sources. BOEMRE has reexamined potential impacts of routine activities and accidental events, including a possible large-scale event, associated with the proposed CPA lease sale. BOEMRE has also re-analyzed the proposed lease sale’s incremental contribution to the cumulative impacts on environmental and socioeconomic resources. Like the Multisale EIS and the 2009–2012 SEIS, the oil and gas resource estimates and scenario information for this Draft SEIS are presented as a range that would encompass the resources and activities estimated for this proposed lease sale.

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

 Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement


Environmental Documents Prepared for Proposed Oil, Gas, and 
Mineral Operations by the Gulf of Mexico Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) 
Region

AGENCY: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and 
Enforcement, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of the availability of environmental documents prepared 
for OCS mineral proposals by the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and 
Enforcement (BOEMRE), in accordance with Federal Regulations that

[[Page 38674]]

implement the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), announces the 
availability of NEPA-related Site-Specific Environmental Assessments 
(SEA) and Findings of No Significant Impact (FONSI), prepared by BOEMRE 
for the following oil-, gas-, and mineral-related activities proposed 
on the Gulf of Mexico.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Public Information Unit, Information 
Services Section at the number below. Bureau of Ocean Energy 
Management, Regulation and Enforcement, Gulf of Mexico OCS Region, 
Attention: Public Information Office (MS 5034), 1201 Elmwood Park 
Boulevard, Room 250, New Orleans, Louisiana 70123-2394, or by calling 
1-800-200-GULF.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BOEMRE prepares SEAs and FONSIs for 
proposals that relate to exploration, development, production, and 
transport of oil, gas, and mineral resources on the Federal OCS. These 
SEAs examine the potential environmental effects of activities 
described in the proposals and present BOEMRE conclusions regarding the 
significance of those effects. Environmental Assessments are used as a 
basis for determining whether or not approval of the proposals 
constitutes a major Federal action that significantly affects the 
quality of the human environment in accordance with NEPA Section 
102(2)(C). A FONSI is prepared in those instances where BOEMRE finds 
that approval will not result in significant effects on the quality of 
the human environment. The FONSI briefly presents the basis for that 
finding and includes a summary or copy of the SEA.
    This notice constitutes the public notice of availability of 
environmental documents required under the NEPA Regulations.
