SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR 250, Subpart C, Pollution Prevention and Control. OMB Control Number: 1014–NEW. 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-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 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 pertaining to Marine Trash and Debris (§ 250.300) that was inadvertently submitted under BOEM. Once OMB approves this ICR, the duplicative hour burden will be removed from the respective BOEM collection. It needs to be stated that between the 60-day Federal Notice for this collection and now, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and Regulatory PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52341 Enforcement split into two separate agencies. This 30-day notice reflects the requirements being moved from the 1010–0057 OMB control numbering series and requesting a new 1014 OMB control number. The hour burdens for this request have stayed the same as was previously approved by OMB. Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR 250, Subpart C. Responses are mandatory. No questions of a sensitive nature are asked. BSEE 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, BSEE 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; • 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. Frequency: On occasion, daily. Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal oil, gas, or sulphur lessees and/or operators. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 124,665 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. E:\FR\FM\29AUN1.SGM 29AUN1
