Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-way, or a right-ofuse and easement. 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 collection also incorporates an IC requirement (§ 250.304) pertaining to the Pacific Region’s State air quality requirement that was inadvertently submitted to OMB previously under 30 CFR 250, subpart H (section 250.804). Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR 250, Subpart C. Responses are mandatory. No questions of a sensitive nature are asked. BOEMRE will protect proprietary information according to 30 CFR 250.197, ‘‘Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection,’’ and the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR 2). In general, BOEMRE uses the information collected under subpart C to ensure that: • There is no threat of serious, irreparable, or immediate damage to the marine environment and to identify potential hazards to commercial fishing caused by OCS oil and gas exploration, development, and production activities; • The lessee or operator records the location of items lost overboard to aid PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58835 in recovery during site clearance activities on the lease; • Operations are conducted according to all applicable regulations, permit conditions and requirements, and in a safe and workmanlike manner; • OCS oil and gas operations are conducted in a manner that minimizes air pollution of the OCS and adjacent onshore areas and do not exceed required emission levels; • Discharge or disposal of drill cuttings, sand, and other well solids, including those containing naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM), are properly handled for the protection of OCS workers and the environment; and • Facilities are inspected daily for the prevention of pollution, and problems observed are corrected. For the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region (GOMR), this ICR also addresses the following non-routine information collection: • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone, fine (i.e., < 2.5 micron) particulate matter (PM2.5), and regulations for regional haze. Air quality related information will be needed to address any new or outstanding NAAQS and regional haze regulations. In preparation for usage by States and regional planning organizations, affected respondents are required to collect and report air pollutant emissions data for OCS activities in the GOMR. This data will be used in future regional air quality modeling in support of revisions to State Implementation Plans and other air quality regulations. In the Pacific, lessees are required to file Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) with their local air quality agencies in response to California air quality laws to protect public health during exceptional air pollution episodes. Frequency: On occasion, daily. Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal oil, gas, or sulphur lessees and/or operators and states. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 196,547 hours. The following chart 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended 
(43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the 
Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations to 
administer leasing of mineral resources on the OCS. Such rules and 
regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, 
right-of-way, or a right-of-use and easement.
    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 collection also incorporates an IC requirement (Sec.  250.304) 
pertaining to the Pacific Region's State air quality requirement that 
was inadvertently submitted to OMB previously under 30 CFR 250, subpart 
H (section 250.804).
    Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR 
250, Subpart C. Responses are mandatory. No questions of a sensitive 
nature are asked. BOEMRE will protect proprietary information according 
to 30 CFR 250.197, ``Data and information to be made available to the 
public or for limited inspection,'' and the Freedom of Information Act 
(5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR 2).
    In general, BOEMRE uses the information collected under subpart C 
to ensure that:
     There is no threat of serious, irreparable, or immediate 
damage to the marine environment and to identify potential hazards to 
commercial fishing caused by OCS oil and gas exploration, development, 
and production activities;
     The lessee or operator records the location of items lost 
overboard to aid in recovery during site clearance activities on the 
lease;
     Operations are conducted according to all applicable 
regulations, permit conditions and requirements, and in a safe and 
workmanlike manner;
     OCS oil and gas operations are conducted in a manner that 
minimizes air pollution of the OCS and adjacent onshore areas and do 
not exceed required emission levels;
     Discharge or disposal of drill cuttings, sand, and other 
well solids, including those containing naturally occurring radioactive 
materials (NORM), are properly handled for the protection of OCS 
workers and the environment; and
     Facilities are inspected daily for the prevention of 
pollution, and problems observed are corrected.
    For the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region (GOMR), this ICR also addresses 
the following non-routine information collection:
     The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated 
National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone, fine (i.e., < 
2.5 micron) particulate matter (PM2.5), and regulations for 
regional haze. Air quality related information will be needed to 
address any new or outstanding NAAQS and regional haze regulations. In 
preparation for usage by States and regional planning organizations, 
affected respondents are required to collect and report air pollutant 
emissions data for OCS activities in the GOMR. This data will be used 
in future regional air quality modeling in support of revisions to 
State Implementation Plans and other air quality regulations.
    In the Pacific, lessees are required to file Emergency Action Plans 
(EAPs) with their local air quality agencies in response to California 
air quality laws to protect public health during exceptional air 
pollution episodes.
    Frequency: On occasion, daily.
    Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal 
oil, gas, or sulphur lessees and/or operators and states.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated 
annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 
196,547 hours. The following chart 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.) 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 June 30, 2011, 
we published a Federal Register notice (76 FR 38410) announcing that we 
would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the 
required 60-day comment period. In addition, section 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 received two comments in response to these efforts. The 
first comment, submitted by a private citizen was not germane to the 
paperwork burden. The second comment was from the Marine Mammal 
Commission in support of our submittal to OMB.
    Public Availability of Comments: Before including your address, 
phone number, email 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.
