In the formulas below, IAL, ILA, IMS, and ITX represent the sum of the inverses of the shortest distances between Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas and all applicable leased tracts (Phase II) and historical lease sites, respectively. We will multiply the result by the amount of shareable, qualified OCS revenues (Phase II). Alabama Share = (IAL ÷ (IAL + ILA + IMS + ITX)) × qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) Louisiana Share = (ILA ÷ (IAL + ILA + IMS + ITX)) × qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) Mississippi Share = (IMS ÷ (IAL + ILA + IMS + ITX)) × qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) Texas Share = (ITX ÷ (IAL + ILA + IMS + ITX)) × qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) (3) If, in any fiscal year, this calculation results in less than a 10percent allocation of the qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) to any Gulf producing State, we will recalculate the distribution. We will allocate 10 percent of the qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) to the affected State and recalculate the other States’ shares of the remaining qualified OCS revenues (Phase II), omitting from the calculation the State receiving the 10-percent minimum share. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS § 1219.514 How will ONRR allocate the qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) to coastal political subdivisions within the Gulf producing States? (a) Of the qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) allocated to a Gulf producing State’s CPSs, ONRR will allocate 25 percent based on the proportion that each CPS’s population bears to the population of all CPSs in the State. (b) Of the qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) allocated to a Gulf producing State’s CPSs, we will allocate 25 percent based on the proportion that each CPS’s miles of coastline bears to the total miles of coastline across all CPSs in the State. However, for the State of Louisiana, we will deem CPSs without a coastline to each have a coastline onethird the average length of the coastline of all CPSs within Louisiana that have a coastline. (c)(1) Of the qualified OCS revenues (Phase II) allocated to a Gulf producing State’s CPSs, we will allocate 50 percent in amounts that are inversely VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:24 Mar 28, 2014 Jkt 232001 proportional to the respective distances between: (i) The point in each CPS that is closest to the geographic center of the applicable leased tract (Phase II) or historical lease site; and (ii) The geographic center of each applicable leased tract (Phase II) or historical lease site. (2) However, we will exclude an applicable leased tract (Phase II) from this calculation if any portion of the tract is located in a geographic area that was subject to a leasing moratorium on January 1, 2005, unless the leased tract was in production on that date. § 1219.515 How will ONRR update the group of ‘‘historical lease sites’’ and ‘‘applicable leased tracts (Phase II)’’ used for determining the allocation of shared revenues? (a) As GOMESA directs, ONRR will update the group of historical lease sites in the 2002–2007 Planning Area as follows: (1) On December 31, 2015, we will freeze the group of historical lease sites, subject to the adjustment under paragraph (a)(2) of this section. (2) Beginning January 1, 2022, and every fifth year thereafter, we will extend the ending date for determining the group of historical lease sites for an additional five calendar years by adding any new historical lease sites to the existing group. (b) Each year we will update the group of applicable leased tracts (Phase II) to include only leases that were in effect at any time during the fiscal year. § 1219.516 When will ONRR disburse funds to Gulf producing States and coastal political subdivisions? (a) ONRR will disburse GOMESA funds in the fiscal year after we collect the qualified OCS revenues (Phase II). (b) We intend to disburse revenues within the first half of the fiscal year following the year that we collect qualified OCS revenues (Phase II).
