SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart J, Pipelines and Pipeline Rights-of-Way. OMB Control Number: 1010–0050. Form(s): BSEE–0149. 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 necessary for the administration of the leasing provisions of the Act related to 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 1334(e) authorizes the Secretary to grant ROWs through the submerged lands of the OCS for pipelines ‘‘ * * * for the transportation of oil, natural gas, sulphur, or other minerals, or under such regulations and upon such conditions as may be prescribed by the Secretary, * * * including (as provided in section 1347(b) of this title) assuring maximum environmental protection by utilization of the best available and safest technologies, including the safest practices for pipeline burial. The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104–133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 1996), and OMB Circular A–25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that confer special benefits. Pipeline ROWs and assignments are subject to cost recovery, and BSEE regulations specify filing fees for applications. Regulations at 30 CFR 250, subpart J, implement these statutory requirements. We use the information to ensure those activities are performed in a safe manner. BSEE needs information concerning the proposed pipeline and safety equipment, inspections and tests, and natural and manmade hazards near the proposed pipeline route. BSEE uses the information to review pipeline designs prior to approving an application for an ROW or lease term pipeline to ensure that the pipeline, as constructed, will provide for safe transportation of minerals through the submerged lands of the OCS. They review proposed pipeline routes to ensure that the pipeline would not conflict with any State requirements or unduly interfere with other OCS activities. BSEE reviews proposals for taking pipeline safety equipment out of service to ensure alternate measures are used that will properly provide for the safety of the pipeline and associated E:\FR\FM\05DEN1.SGM 05DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 233 / Monday, December 5, 2011 / Notices facilities (platform, etc.). They review notification of relinquishment of an ROW grant and requests to abandon pipelines to ensure that all legal obligations are met and pipelines are properly abandoned. BSEE monitors the records concerning pipeline inspections and tests to ensure safety of operations and protection of the environment and to schedule their workload to permit witnessing and inspecting operations. Information is also necessary to determine the point at which DOI or Department of Transportation (DOT) has regulatory responsibility for a pipeline and to be informed of the identified operator if not the same as the ROW holder. The following form is also submitted to BSEE under subpart J. The form and its purpose is: BSEE–0149—Assignment of Federal OCS Pipeline Right-of-Way Grant: BSEE uses the information to track the ownership of pipeline ROWs; as well as use the information to update the corporate database that is used to determine what leases are available for a Lease Sale and the ownership of all OCS leases.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart J, Pipelines and Pipeline Rights-
of-Way.
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0050.
    Form(s): BSEE-0149.
    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 necessary 
for the administration of the leasing provisions of the Act related to 
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 1334(e) authorizes the Secretary to grant ROWs 
through the submerged lands of the OCS for pipelines `` * * * for the 
transportation of oil, natural gas, sulphur, or other minerals, or 
under such regulations and upon such conditions as may be prescribed by 
the Secretary, * * * including (as provided in section 1347(b) of this 
title) assuring maximum environmental protection by utilization of the 
best available and safest technologies, including the safest practices 
for pipeline burial.
    The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the 
Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104-133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 
1996), and OMB Circular A-25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the 
full cost of services that confer special benefits. Pipeline ROWs and 
assignments are subject to cost recovery, and BSEE regulations specify 
filing fees for applications.
    Regulations at 30 CFR 250, subpart J, implement these statutory 
requirements. We use the information to ensure those activities are 
performed in a safe manner. BSEE needs information concerning the 
proposed pipeline and safety equipment, inspections and tests, and 
natural and manmade hazards near the proposed pipeline route. BSEE uses 
the information to review pipeline designs prior to approving an 
application for an ROW or lease term pipeline to ensure that the 
pipeline, as constructed, will provide for safe transportation of 
minerals through the submerged lands of the OCS. They review proposed 
pipeline routes to ensure that the pipeline would not conflict with any 
State requirements or unduly interfere with other OCS activities. BSEE 
reviews proposals for taking pipeline safety equipment out of service 
to ensure alternate measures are used that will properly provide for 
the safety of the pipeline and associated

facilities (platform, etc.). They review notification of relinquishment 
of an ROW grant and requests to abandon pipelines to ensure that all 
legal obligations are met and pipelines are properly abandoned. BSEE 
monitors the records concerning pipeline inspections and tests to 
ensure safety of operations and protection of the environment and to 
schedule their workload to permit witnessing and inspecting operations. 
Information is also necessary to determine the point at which DOI or 
Department of Transportation (DOT) has regulatory responsibility for a 
pipeline and to be informed of the identified operator if not the same 
as the ROW holder.
    The following form is also submitted to BSEE under subpart J. The 
form and its purpose is:
    BSEE-0149--Assignment of Federal OCS Pipeline Right-of-Way Grant: 
BSEE uses the information to track the ownership of pipeline ROWs; as 
well as use the information to update the corporate database that is 
used to determine what leases are available for a Lease Sale and the 
ownership of all OCS leases.
    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) and under regulations at 30 
CFR 250.197, ``Data and information to be made available to the public 
or for limited inspection.'' No items of a sensitive nature are 
collected. Responses are mandatory.
    Frequency: On occasion, annual.
    Description of Respondents: Potential respondents include lessees, 
operators, and holders of pipeline ROWs.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The currently 
approved annual reporting burden for this collection is 76,864 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.

    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

    Before submitting an ICR to OMB, PRA section 3506(c)(2)(A) 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 collection is necessary or 
useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy 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 technology.
    Agencies must also estimate the non-hour paperwork cost burdens to 
respondents or recordkeepers resulting from the collection of 
information. Therefore, if you have other than hour burden costs to 
generate, maintain, and disclose this information, you should comment 
and provide your total capital and startup cost components or annual 
operation, maintenance, and purchase of service components. For further 
information on this burden, refer to 5 CFR 1320.3(b)(1) and (2), or 
contact the Bureau representative listed previously in this notice.
    We will summarize written responses to this notice and address them 
in our submission for OMB approval. As a result of your comments, we 
will make any necessary adjustments to the burden in our submission to 
OMB.

Public Comment Procedures

    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.
