FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cheryl Blundon, Regulations Development Branch at (703) 787–1607 to request additional information about this ICR. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR part 282, Operations in the Outer Continental Shelf for Minerals other than Oil, Gas, and Sulphur. OMB Control Number: 1014–NEW. Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1334 and 43 U.S.C. 1337(k)), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to implement regulations to grant leases of any mineral other than oil, gas, and sulphur to qualified parties. This regulation governs mining operations within the OCS and establishes a comprehensive leasing and regulatory program for such minerals. This regulation has been designed to: (a) Recognize the differences between the OCS activities associated with oil, gas, and sulphur discovery and development and those associated with the discovery and development of other minerals; (b) facilitate participation by States directly affected by OCS mining activities; (c) provide opportunities for consultation and coordination with other OCS users and uses; (d) balance development with environmental protection; (e) insure a fair return to the public; (f) preserve and maintain free enterprise competition; PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 79705 and (g) encourage the development of new technology. The authorities and responsibilities described above are among those delegated to BSEE. This ICR addresses the regulations at 30 CFR part 282, Operations in the Outer Continental Shelf for Minerals Other than Oil, Gas, and Sulphur. It should be noted that there has been no activity in the OCS for minerals other than oil, gas and sulphur for many years and no information collected. However, because these are regulatory requirements, the potential exists for information to be collected; therefore, we are requesting this collection of information be approved by OMB. To accommodate the split of regulations from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement to BSEE, BSEE is requesting OMB approval of the already approved burden hours that were previously under 1010–0081 to reflect BSEE’s new 1014 numbering system. Regulations at 30 CFR part 282 implement these statutory requirements. We use the information to determine if lessees are complying with the regulations that implement the mining operations program for minerals other than oil, gas, and sulphur. Specifically, BSEE will use the information to: (a) To ensure that operations for the production of minerals other than oil, gas, and sulphur in the OCS are conducted in a manner that will result in orderly resource recovery, development, and the protection of the human, marine, and coastal environments; (b) to ensure that adequate measures will be taken during operations to prevent waste, conserve the natural resources of the OCS, and to protect the environment, human life, and correlative rights; (c) to determine if suspensions of activities are in the national interest, to facilitate proper development of a lease including reasonable time to develop a mine and construct its supporting facilities, or to allow for the construction or negotiation for use of transportation facilities; (d) to identify and evaluate the cause(s) of a hazard(s) generating a suspension, the potential damage from a hazard(s) and the measures available to mitigate the potential for damage; and (e) for technical evaluations that provide a basis for BSEE to make informed decisions to approve, disapprove, or require modification of the proposed activities. 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 30 CFR 282.5, 282.6, and 282.7.

Frequency: On occasion; and as a result of situations encountered. Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal OCS lessees and/or operators. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: We estimate that the reporting burden for this collection will be approximately 156 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.

Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have identified one non-hour cost burden associated with § 282.13(e)(1), a site specific study. Since this has not been done to date, we estimated that the study would cost industry approximately $100,000 to comply with the requirement. We have not identified any other non-hour paperwork cost burdens associated with this collection. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:17 Dec 21, 2011 Jkt 226001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 0. 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 nonhour 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 E:\FR\FM\22DEN1.SGM 22DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 246 / Thursday, December 22, 2011 / Notices operation, maintenance, and purchase of service components.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: 30 CFR part 282, Operations in the Outer Continental Shelf 
for Minerals other than Oil, Gas, and Sulphur.
    OMB Control Number: 1014-NEW.
    Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended 
(43 U.S.C. 1334 and 43 U.S.C. 1337(k)), authorizes the Secretary of the 
Interior to implement regulations to grant leases of any mineral other 
than oil, gas, and sulphur to qualified parties. This regulation 
governs mining operations within the OCS and establishes a 
comprehensive leasing and regulatory program for such minerals. This 
regulation has been designed to: (a) Recognize the differences between 
the OCS activities associated with oil, gas, and sulphur discovery and 
development and those associated with the discovery and development of 
other minerals; (b) facilitate participation by States directly 
affected by OCS mining activities; (c) provide opportunities for 
consultation and coordination with other OCS users and uses; (d) 
balance development with environmental protection; (e) insure a fair 
return to the public; (f) preserve and maintain free enterprise 
competition; and (g) encourage the development of new technology.
    The authorities and responsibilities described above are among 
those delegated to BSEE. This ICR addresses the regulations at 30 CFR 
part 282, Operations in the Outer Continental Shelf for Minerals Other 
than Oil, Gas, and Sulphur. It should be noted that there has been no 
activity in the OCS for minerals other than oil, gas and sulphur for 
many years and no information collected. However, because these are 
regulatory requirements, the potential exists for information to be 
collected; therefore, we are requesting this collection of information 
be approved by OMB. To accommodate the split of regulations from the 
Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement to BSEE, 
BSEE is requesting OMB approval of the already approved burden hours 
that were previously under 1010-0081 to reflect BSEE's new 1014 
numbering system.
    Regulations at 30 CFR part 282 implement these statutory 
requirements. We use the information to determine if lessees are 
complying with the regulations that implement the mining operations 
program for minerals other than oil, gas, and sulphur. Specifically, 
BSEE will use the information to: (a) To ensure that operations for the 
production of minerals other than oil, gas, and sulphur in the OCS are 
conducted in a manner that will result in orderly resource recovery, 
development, and the protection of the human, marine, and coastal 
environments; (b) to ensure that adequate measures will be taken during 
operations to prevent waste, conserve the natural resources of the OCS, 
and to protect the environment, human life, and correlative rights; (c) 
to determine if suspensions of activities are in the national interest, 
to facilitate proper development of a lease including reasonable time 
to develop a mine and construct its supporting facilities, or to allow 
for the construction or negotiation for use of transportation 
facilities; (d) to identify and evaluate the cause(s) of a hazard(s) 
generating a suspension, the potential damage from a hazard(s) and the 
measures available to mitigate the potential for damage; and (e) for 
technical evaluations that provide a basis for BSEE to make informed 
decisions to approve, disapprove, or require modification of the 
proposed activities.
    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 30 CFR 282.5, 282.6, and 
282.7. No items of a

sensitive nature are collected. Responses are mandatory.
    Frequency: On occasion; and as a result of situations encountered.
    Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal 
OCS lessees and/or operators.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: We estimate that 
the reporting burden for this collection will be approximately 156 
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.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have 
identified one non-hour cost burden associated with Sec.  282.13(e)(1), 
a site specific study. Since this has not been done to date, we 
estimated that the study would cost industry approximately $100,000 to 
comply with the requirement. We have not identified any other non-hour 
paperwork cost burdens associated with this collection.
    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.
