In accordance with these confidentiality statutes, only statistical (aggregated) and nonidentifying data will be made publicly available by BTS through its reports. BTS will not release to BSEE or any other public or private entity any information that might reveal the identity of individuals or organizations mentioned in failure notices or reports without explicit consent of the respondent and any other affected entities. Respondents who report a barrierrelated failure will be asked to fill out a form based upon the requirements of 30 CFR 250.730(c) and cited industry standards. They will also be asked to submit supplemental information and analysis as described in 30 CFR 250.730(c) or 30 CFR 250.803 and cited industry standards. Respondents will have the option to mail or submit the reports electronically to BTS. Respondents will be asked to provide information such as: (1) Name and contact information; (2) time and location of the failure event; (3) a short description of the failure event and operating conditions that existed at the time of the event; (4) contributing factors to the event; (5) results of an investigation or safety analysis report; (6) any design or procedural changes as a result of the reported equipment failure; and (7) any other information that might be useful in determining ways to prevents such failures from occurring. BTS requests emergency processing of this information collection because the use of normal clearance procedures is likely to result in the collection of only limited data on barrier failure events during the established PRA time periods. The use of normal clearance procedures will prevent collection of this data during the established PRA time periods, which will inhibit BSEE’s ability to comprehensively assess barrier failures and risks, identify barrier failure trends, and identify causes of critical safety barrier failure events. The BSEE Well Control Rule failure data collection for BOP equipment was substantially driven by an event of major national significance, which also captured international attention. One important element of this event was the failure of BOP equipment. The event resulted in the deaths of 11 people and the largest oil spill in US history. It is in the public interest to commence immediate collection of the additional VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Sep 06, 2016 Jkt 238001 information on equipment history and important event data to enable a better understanding of underlying root causes. III. Request for Public Comment BTS requests comments on any aspects of this information collection request, including: (1) Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (2) ways to minimize the collection burden without reducing the quality of the information collected, including additional use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
