SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501–3521) and OMB regulations at 5 CFR part 1320 provide 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. In order to obtain and renew an OMB control number, Federal agencies are required to seek public comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8(d) and 1320.12(a)). As required at 5 CFR 1320.8(d), the BLM published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register on April 16, 2015, and the comment period ended June 15, 2015. The BLM received comments from one commenter. The commenter stated that we underestimated the burdens for ‘‘Refined Helium Deliveries Detail’’ and ‘‘Refiners’ Tolling Occurrence Report.’’ In response, the BLM re-considered the burden estimates and changed the burden estimates for each of these information collection activities to four hours. The commenter also suggested revisions of the descriptions of the information collection activities to be PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61231 consistent with the 2013 Act. The BLM concurs with these modifications and has made the suggested revisions. The BLM now requests comments on the following subjects: 1. Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper functioning of the BLM, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. The accuracy of the BLM’s estimate of the burden of collecting the information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. The quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. How to minimize the information collection burden on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other forms of information technology.

The following information pertains to this request: Title: Helium Contracts (43 CFR part 3195). OMB Control Number: 1004–0179. Summary: At present, control number 1004–0179 (expiration date: April 30, 2017) enables the BLM to monitor purchases and sales of helium from the Federal Helium Reserve. This information collection activity is in accordance with the BLM’s authority to implement in-kind sales of helium in accordance with 43 CFR part 3195. The BLM seeks OMB clearance to revise and extend this ongoing collection of information for another 3 years. The requested revision will be the addition of a new form (‘‘Refined Helium Deliveries Detail’’) that will replace the existing non-form activity titled ‘‘Sales Reports.’’ In addition, the BLM seeks OMB clearance to add information collection activities that are necessary for the implementation of the Helium Stewardship Act of 2013 (Act or 2013 Act), Public Law 113–40 (127 Stat. 534, codified at 50 U.S.C. 167–167q).

    The following information pertains to this request:
    Title: Helium Contracts (43 CFR part 3195).
    OMB Control Number: 1004-0179.
    Summary: At present, control number 1004-0179 (expiration date:

[[Page 61232]]

additional terms and conditions of Federal helium sales that 
necessitate new information collection activities:
     Parties to a helium storage contract with the BLM must 
disclose on a strictly confidential basis:
    (1) The volumes and associated prices in dollars per thousand cubic 
feet (Mcf) in purchase and sales transactions made pursuant to any

    (2) Refinery operational capacity, future operational capacity, and 
excess refining capacity in Mcf; and
     Refiners of crude helium that enter into ``tolling 
agreements'' must submit a Tolling Occurrence Report to the BLM 
whenever they enter into such tolling agreements. (``Tolling 
agreements'' refers to the helium industry's practice of processing or 
refining another party's helium at an agreed upon price. While refiners 
can purchase, access, and refine their own helium, non-refiners rely 
upon the refiners to process and refine the helium that they have 
purchased--this process is called tolling.)
    Frequency of Collection: Quarterly for the Refined Helium 
Deliveries Detail; annually for the Calculation of Excess Refining 
Capacity and Refiners' Annual Tolling Report; and ``on occasion'' for 
the Refiners' Tolling Occurrence Report.
