ACTION: Notice of Availability (NOA) of a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). AGENCY: Consistent with the regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) (NEPA), BOEM has prepared a Final EIS on oil and gas lease sales tentatively scheduled to be held in 2014 and 2016 in the EPA offshore the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Under the Outer Continental Shelf Oil & Gas Leasing Program: 2012–2017 (FiveYear Program), two lease sales are scheduled for the EPA. The proposed EPA lease sales are Lease Sales 225 and 226. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This Final EIS provides information on the baseline conditions and potential environmental effects of oil and natural gas leasing, exploration, development, and production in the EPA. The Final EIS incorporates by reference the analysis presented in the Gulf of Mexico OCS Oil and Gas Lease Sales: 2012– 2017; Western Planning Area Lease Sales 229, 233, 238, 246, and 248; Central Planning Area Lease Sales 227, 231, 235, 241, and 247, Final Environmental Impact Statement (2012– 2017 WPA/CPA Multisale EIS; OCS EIS/ EA BOEM 2012–019) and Gulf of Mexico OCS Oil and Gas Lease Sales: 2013–2014; Western Planning Area sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with FRONT MATTER SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:08 Oct 21, 2013 Jkt 232001 Lease Sale 233; Central Planning Area Lease Sale 231, Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (WPA 233/CPA 231 Supplemental EIS; OCS EIS/EA BOEM 2013–0118). The Final EIS also tiers from the Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program: 2012–2017 Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (OCS EIS/EA BOEM 2012–030). Subject matter experts surveyed scientific journals and available scientific data, gathered information, and interviewed personnel from academic institutions and Federal, State, and local government agencies. BOEM has examined the potential impacts of routine activities, potential accidental events, and the incremental contribution of a proposed lease sale to the cumulative impacts on environmental and socioeconomic resources. BOEM conducted an extensive search for new information in consideration of the Deepwater Horizon explosion, oil spill, and response. BOEM has also examined the potential impacts of a low-probability catastrophic event. The oil and gas resource estimates and scenario information for this Final EIS are presented as a range that would encompass the resources and activities estimated for an EPA proposed lease sale. Final EIS Availability: BOEM has printed and will be distributing a limited number of paper copies. In keeping with the Department of the Interior’s mission of the protection of natural resources and to limit costs while ensuring availability of the document to the public, BOEM will primarily distribute digital copies of this Final EIS on compact discs.
