SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR 250, Subpart B, Plans and Information. 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 necessary for the administration of the leasing provisions of that Act related to mineral resources on the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-use and easement, or unit. 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. Under the Department of the Interior’s implementing policy, BSEE is required to charge fees for services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those which accrue to the public at large. Deepwater Operations Plans are subject to cost recovery, and BSEE regulations specify a service fee for this request. Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart B, and are among those delegated to BSEE. This request also covers the related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that BSEE issues PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 × Hours per response 1 = Burden hours 800 to clarify, supplement, or provide additional guidance on some aspects of our regulations. To accommodate the split of regulations from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement to BSEE (76 FR 64432), BSEE is requesting OMB approval of the already approved information collections that were previously under 1010–0151 to reflect BSEE’s new 1014 numbering system. This ICR does not change the burden hours or make any other modifications to what was previously approved, other than to remove the collections under the purview of BOEM. Responses are mandatory. No questions of a sensitive nature are asked. BSSE will protect information considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2); also under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection, and 30 CFR part 252, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Oil and Gas Information Program. BSEE analyzes and evaluates the information and data collected under this subpart to ensure that planned operations are safe; will not adversely affect the marine, coastal, or human environment; and will conserve the resources of the OCS. We use the information to make an informed decision on whether to approve the proposed deepwater operations plans, or whether modifications are necessary without the analysis and evaluation of the required information. Frequency: On occasion. 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 18,256 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 one non-hour cost burden associated with this collection of information. It consists of a fee being submitted with a DWOP ($3,336). We estimate that the total annual non-hour cost burden is $40,032, and we have not identified any other non-hour cost burdens associated with this 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:54 Sep 21, 2012 Jkt 226001 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 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. To comply with the public consultation process, on July 6, 2011, PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 we published a Federal Register notice (76 FR 39419) announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day comment period. In addition, the § 250.199 regulation 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. While the first comment, from the Marine Mammal Commission, supported our request to OMB, the second comment pertained to BOEM requirements and was therefore not relevant to BSEE regulations. BOEM responded to both comments in the E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1 58860 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 185 / Monday, September 24, 2012 / Notices Federal Register on September 30, 2011 (76 FR 60856). If you wish to comment in response to this notice, you may send your comments to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this notice. The OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by October 22, 2012. 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. Dated: August 21, 2012. Robert W.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: 30 CFR 250, Subpart B, Plans and Information.
    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 necessary 
for the administration of the leasing provisions of that Act related to 
mineral resources on the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to 
all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-use and easement, or 
unit.
    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. Under the 
Department of the Interior's implementing policy, BSEE is required to 
charge fees for services that provide special benefits or privileges to 
an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those which 
accrue to the public at large. Deepwater Operations Plans are subject 
to cost recovery, and BSEE regulations specify a service fee for this 
request.
    Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR 
Part 250, Subpart B, and are among those delegated to BSEE. This 
request also covers the related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) 
that BSEE issues to clarify, supplement, or provide additional guidance 
on some aspects of our regulations.
    To accommodate the split of regulations from the Bureau of Ocean 
Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement to BSEE (76 FR 64432), 
BSEE is requesting OMB approval of the already approved information 
collections that were previously under 1010-0151 to reflect BSEE's new 
1014 numbering system. This ICR does not change the burden hours or 
make any other modifications to what was previously approved, other 
than to remove the collections under the purview of BOEM.
    Responses are mandatory. No questions of a sensitive nature are 
asked. BSSE will protect information considered proprietary under the 
Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing 
regulations (43 CFR part 2); also under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, 
Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited 
inspection, and 30 CFR part 252, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Oil and 
Gas Information Program.
    BSEE analyzes and evaluates the information and data collected 
under this subpart to ensure that planned operations are safe; will not 
adversely affect the marine, coastal, or human environment; and will 
conserve the resources of the OCS. We use the information to make an 
informed decision on whether to approve the proposed deepwater 
operations plans, or whether modifications are necessary without the 
analysis and evaluation of the required information.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    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 18,256 
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.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* The non-hour cost burden that is associated with cost recovery money collected is based on actual submittals through Pay.gov for FY 2010.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have 
identified one non-hour cost burden associated with this collection of 
information. It consists of a fee being submitted with a DWOP ($3,336). 
We estimate that the total annual non-hour cost burden is $40,032, and 
we have not identified any other non-hour cost burdens associated with 
this 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 
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.
    To comply with the public consultation process, on July 6, 2011, we 
published a Federal Register notice (76 FR 39419) announcing that we 
would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the 
required 60-day comment period. In addition, the Sec.  250.199 
regulation 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. While the first comment, from the Marine Mammal Commission, 
supported our request to OMB, the second comment pertained to BOEM 
requirements and was therefore not relevant to BSEE regulations. BOEM 
responded to both comments in the

[[Page 58860]]

Federal Register on September 30, 2011 (76 FR 60856).
    If you wish to comment in response to this notice, you may send 
your comments to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this 
notice. The OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the 
information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to 
ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by 
October 22, 2012.
    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.

    Dated: August 21, 2012.
Robert W. Middleton,
Deputy Chief, Office of Offshore Regulatory Programs.
