Notice of availability. AGENCY: ACTION: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C), the National Park Service (NPS) announces the availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Nonfederal Oil and Gas Regulations (36 CFR part 9, subpart B) Revisions.

A web link to a prerecorded webinar providing an overview of the project will also be listed. SUMMARY: Copies of the DEIS will be available for public review at http:// parkplanning.nps.gov/DEIS9B.

ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64445 The DEIS evaluates the impacts of three alternatives, including the following alternative elements: • Elimination of two regulatory provisions that exempt 60% of the oil and gas operations in NPS units. All operators in NPS units would be required to comply with the 9B regulations. • Elimination of the financial assurance (bonding) cap. Financial assurance would be equal to the reasonable estimated cost of site reclamation. • Improving enforcement authority by incorporating existing NPS penalty provisions. Law enforcement staff would have authority to write citations for noncompliance with the regulations. • Authorizing compensation to the federal government for new access on federal lands outside the boundary of an operator’s mineral right. • Reformatting the regulations to make it easier to identify an operator’s information requirements and operating standards that apply to each type of operation. If you wish to comment electronically, you may submit your comments online at the PEPC Web site by visiting http://parkplanning.nps.gov/ DEIS9B. NPS encourages commenting electronically through PEPC.
