This Notice also Lists the Following Information: Title of Proposal: Public Housing Agency (PHA), Lease Requirements, Recordkeeping Requirements. OMB Approval Number: 2577–0006. Form Number: None. Description of the Need for the Information and its Proposed Use: The Public Housing lease and grievance procedures are a recordkeeping requirement on the part of Public Housing agencies (PHAs) as they are required to enter into and maintain lease agreements for each individual or family that occupies a Public Housing unit. Also, both PHAs and tenants are required to follow the protocols set forth in the grievance procedures for both an informal and formal grievance hearing. The current revision was needed to correct errors in the 2009 calculation. The earlier calculation had over the amount of time needed to complete the form. The previous submission incorrectly included the number of responding PHAs in the calculation and also incorrectly assumed that 100% of households would be reviewing or initiating a lease. The correction of the errors brought the number of burden hours down from 5,671,800 to 339,822.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart K, Oil and Gas Production Requirements. OMB Control Number: 1014–0019. Form(s): BSEE–0126 and BSEE–0128. 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. Operations on the OCS must preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources in a manner that is consistent with the need to make such resources available to meet the Nation’s energy needs as rapidly as possible; to balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; to ensure the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Section 5(a) of the OCS Lands Act requires the Secretary to prescribe rules and regulations ‘‘to provide for the prevention of waste, and conservation of the natural resources of the Outer Continental Shelf, and the protection of correlative rights therein’’ and to include provisions ‘‘for the prompt and efficient exploration and development of a lease area.’’ Section 1334(g)(2) states ‘‘* * * the lessee shall produce such oil or gas, or both, at rates * * * to assure the maximum rate of production which may be sustained without loss of ultimate recovery of oil or gas, or both, under sound engineering and economic principles, and which is safe for the duration of the activity covered by the approved plan.’’ 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, PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59209 Hours per response Burden hours 12.650 × 2,118,814 the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) is required to charge the full cost for services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those that accrue to the public at large. Several requests for approval required in Subpart K are subject to cost recovery, and BSEE regulations specify service fees for these requests. This ICR addresses our current regulations governing oil and gas production at 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart K, associated forms, and related Notices to Lessees (NTLs) and Operators. The BSEE issued several NTLs to clarify and provide additional guidance on some aspects of the current Subpart K regulations. This collection of information will renew the approved information collection for the current Subpart K regulations (1014–0019). Regulations at 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart K, implement these statutory requirements. We use the information in our efforts to conserve natural resources, prevent waste, and protect correlative rights, including the Government’s royalty interest. Specifically, BSEE uses the information to: • Evaluate requests to burn liquid hydrocarbons and vent and flare gas to ensure that these requests are appropriate; • Determine if a maximum production or efficient rate is required; and, • Review applications for downhole commingling to ensure that action does not result in harm to ultimate recovery. However, in this ICR, we have also clarified some sections of Form BSEE– 0126. These clarifications pose minor edits and they are as follows: In Block No. 88, TYPE OF REQUEST, we added the word ‘‘Reestablish’’; in Block No. 108, we revised the block that read ‘‘API @ 60° F’’ to now read as ‘‘API @ 14.73 PSI & 60° F’’ and in Block No. 109, we revised the block from ‘‘SP GR GAS’’ to now read as ‘‘SP GR GAS @ 14.73 PSI & 60°F’’. We use the information in Form BSEE–0126, Well Potential Test Report, for reservoir, reserves, and conservation analyses, including the determination of maximum production rates (MPRs) when necessary for certain oil and gas completions. The information obtained from the well potential test is essential to determine if an MPR is necessary for a well and to establish the appropriate E:\FR\FM\26SEN1.SGM 26SEN1
