SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 1010–0176. Title: 30 CFR 585, Renewable Energy and Alternate Uses of Existing Facilities on the Outer Continental Shelf. Forms: BOEM–0002, BOEM–0003, BOEM–0004, BOEM–0005, BOEM– 0006. 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 issue leases, easements, or rights-ofway on the OCS for activities that produce or support production, transportation, or transmission of energy from sources other than oil and gas (renewable energy). Specifically, subsection 8(p) of the OCS Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1337(p)), directs the Secretary of the Interior to issue any necessary regulations to carry out the OCS renewable energy program. The Secretary delegated this authority to BOEM. BOEM has issued regulations for OCS renewable energy activities at 30 CFR part 585; this notice concerns the reporting and recordkeeping elements required by these regulations.

Respondents operate commercial and noncommercial technology projects that include installation, construction, operation and maintenance, and decommissioning of offshore facilities, as well as possible onshore support facilities. BOEM must ensure that these activities and operations on the OCS are performed in a safe manner which do not cause damage to the environment or endanger life or health, do not interfere with the rights of other users on the OCS, and balance the protection and development of OCS resources. Therefore, BOEM needs information concerning the proposed activities, facilities, safety equipment, inspections and tests, and natural and manmade hazards near the site, as well as assurance of fiscal responsibility. BOEM uses forms to collect some information to ensure proper and efficient administration of OCS renewable energy leases and grants and to document the financial responsibility of lessees and grantees. Forms BOEM– 0002, BOEM–0003, BOEM–0004, and BOEM–0006 are used by renewable energy entities on the OCS to assign a lease interest, designate an operator, and to assign or relinquish a lease or grant. Form BOEM–0005 was designed to guarantee the performance of sureties with respect to bonds issued on behalf of OCS renewable energy lessees, grantees, and operators. BOEM maintains the submitted forms as official lease and grant records pertaining to operating responsibilities, ownership, and financial responsibility. We will protect information considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2) and under regulations at 30 CFR 585.113, addressing disclosure E:\FR\FM\27APN1.SGM 27APN1 24870 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 81 / Wednesday, April 27, 2016 / Notices of data and information to be made available to the public and others.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0176.
    Title: 30 CFR 585, Renewable Energy and Alternate Uses of Existing 
Facilities on the Outer Continental Shelf.
    Forms: BOEM-0002, BOEM-0003, BOEM-0004, BOEM-0005, BOEM-0006.
    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 issue leases, easements, or rights-of-way 
on the OCS for activities that produce or support production, 
transportation, or transmission of energy from sources other than oil 
and gas (renewable energy). Specifically, subsection 8(p) of the OCS 
Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1337(p)), directs the Secretary of the 
Interior to issue any necessary regulations to carry out the OCS 
renewable energy program. The Secretary delegated this authority to 
BOEM. BOEM has issued regulations for OCS renewable energy activities 
at 30 CFR part 585; this notice concerns the reporting and 
recordkeeping elements required by these regulations.
    Respondents operate commercial and noncommercial technology 
projects that include installation, construction, operation and 
maintenance, and decommissioning of offshore facilities, as well as 
possible onshore support facilities. BOEM must ensure that these 
activities and operations on the OCS are performed in a safe manner 
which do not cause damage to the environment or endanger life or 
health, do not interfere with the rights of other users on the OCS, and 
balance the protection and development of OCS resources. Therefore, 
BOEM needs information concerning the proposed activities, facilities, 
safety equipment, inspections and tests, and natural and manmade 
hazards near the site, as well as assurance of fiscal responsibility.
    BOEM uses forms to collect some information to ensure proper and 
efficient administration of OCS renewable energy leases and grants and 
to document the financial responsibility of lessees and grantees. Forms 
BOEM-0002, BOEM-0003, BOEM-0004, and BOEM-0006 are used by renewable 
energy entities on the OCS to assign a lease interest, designate an 
operator, and to assign or relinquish a lease or grant. Form BOEM-0005 
was designed to guarantee the performance of sureties with respect to 
bonds issued on behalf of OCS renewable energy lessees, grantees, and 
operators. BOEM maintains the submitted forms as official lease and 
grant records pertaining to operating responsibilities, ownership, and 
financial responsibility.
    We will protect information considered proprietary under the 
Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing 
regulations (43 CFR part 2) and under regulations at 30 CFR 585.113, 
addressing disclosure

[[Page 24870]]

of data and information to be made available to the public and others. 
No items of a sensitive nature are collected. Responses are mandatory 
or required to obtain a benefit.
    Frequency: On occasion or annually.
    Description of Respondents: Companies interested in renewable 
energy-related uses on the OCS and holders of leases and grants under 
30 CFR part 585.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated 
annual hour burden for this collection is 25,688 hours. The following 
table details the individual components and estimated hour burdens. In 
calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain 
requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider 
these to be usual and customary and took that into account in 
estimating the burden.

\1\ In the future, BOEM may require electronic filing of certain submissions.
\2\ Retention of these records is usual and customary business practice; the burden is primarily to make them available to BOEM and CVAs.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: The 
estimated non-hour cost burdens total $3,816,000. The non-hour cost 
burdens consist of service fees for BOEM document/study preparation, 
costs for paying a contractor instead of BOEM, and costs for a site-
specific study and report to evaluate the cause of harm to natural 
resources.
    Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) 
provides 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.
    Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et 
seq.,) requires each agency ``. . . to provide notice . . . and 
otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies 
concerning each proposed collection of information . . .'' Agencies 
must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the 
collection is necessary or useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the 
quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; 
and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of 
technology.
    To comply with the public consultation process, on December 17, 
2015, BOEM published a Federal Register notice (80 FR 78756) announcing 
that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. This notice provided 
the required 60-day comment period. BOEM received no comments.
    Public Availability of Comments: Before including your address, 
phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information 
in your comment, you should be aware that

your entire comment--including your personal identifying information--
may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in 
your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from 
public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
