Title: 30 CFR part 250, Application for Permit to Drill (APD, Revised APD), Supplemental APD Information Sheet, and all supporting documentation. Form(s): BSEE–0123 and –0123S. OMB Control Number: 1014–0025. Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act at 43 U.S.C. 1334 authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations necessary for the administration of the leasing provisions of that Act related to mineral resources on the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-way, or a right-of-use and easement. Operations on the OCS must preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources in a manner that is consistent with the need to make such resources available to meet the Nation’s energy needs as rapidly as possible; to balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; to PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ensure the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. In addition to the general rulemaking authority of the OCSLA at 43 U.S.C. 1334, section 301(a) of the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act (FOGRMA), 30 U.S.C. 1751(a), grants authority to the Secretary to prescribe such rules and regulations as are reasonably necessary to carry out FOGRMA’s provisions. While the majority of FOGRMA is directed to royalty collection and enforcement, some provisions apply to offshore operations. For example, section 108 of FOGRMA, 30 U.S.C. 1718, grants the Secretary broad authority to inspect lease sites for the purpose of determining whether there is compliance with the mineral leasing laws. Section 109(c)(2) and (d)(1), 30 U.S.C. 1719(c)(2) and (d)(1), impose substantial civil penalties for failure to permit lawful inspections and for knowing or willful preparation or submission of false, inaccurate, or misleading reports, records, or other information. Because the Secretary has delegated some of the authority under FOGRMA to BSEE, 30 U.S.C. 1751 is included as additional authority for these requirements. The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104–133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 1996), and OMB Circular A–25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that confer special benefits. Under the Department of the Interior’s implementing policy, BSEE is required to charge fees for services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those which accrue to the public at large. Applications for permits to drill are subject to cost recovery, and BSEE regulations specify a service fee for this request. This authority and responsibility are among those delegated to BSEE. The regulations at 30 CFR part 250 stipulates the various requirements that must be submitted with forms BSEE–0123, Application for Permit to Drill (APD), Revised APD, and BSEE–0123S, Supplemental APD Information Sheet. The forms and the numerous submittals included with them are the subject of this collection. There are no changes being made to the forms with this ICR submission. This request also covers any related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that BSEE issues to clarify, supplement, or provide E:\FR\FM\28FEN1.SGM 28FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 38 / Tuesday, February 28, 2017 / Notices additional guidance on some aspects of our regulations. Most responses are mandatory, while some are required to obtain or retain a benefit. No questions of a sensitive nature are asked. BSEE will protect any confidential commercial or proprietary information according to section 26 of OCSLA (43 U.S.C. 1352); the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552); and DOI’s implementing regulations (43 CFR 2), and according to 30 CFR 250.197, Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection, and 30 CFR part 252, OCS Oil and Gas Information Program. BSEE uses the information from forms BSEE–0123 and BSEE–0123s to ensure safe drilling operations and to protect the human, marine, and coastal environment. Among other things, BSEE specifically uses the information to ensure: The drilling unit is fit for the intended purpose; the lessee or operator will not encounter geologic conditions that present a hazard to operations; equipment is maintained in a state of readiness and meets safety standards; each drilling crew is properly trained and able to promptly perform wellcontrol activities at any time during well operations; compliance with safety standards; and the current regulations will provide for safe and proper field or reservoir development, resource evaluation, conservation, protection of correlative rights, safety, and environmental protection. We also review well records to ascertain whether drilling operations have encountered hydrocarbons or H2S and to ensure that H2S detection equipment, personnel protective equipment, and training of the crew are adequate for safe operations in zones known to contain H2S and zones where the presence of H2S is unknown. Also, we use the information to determine the conditions of a drilling site to avoid hazards inherent in drilling operations. Specifically, we use the information to evaluate the adequacy of a lessee’s or operator’s plan and equipment for drilling, sidetracking, or deepening operations. This includes the adequacy of the proposed casing design, casing setting depths, drilling fluid (mud) programs, cementing programs, and BOP systems to ascertain that the proposed operations will be conducted in an operationally safe manner that provides adequate protection for the environment. The BSEE also reviews the information to ensure conformance with specific provisions of the lease. In addition, except for proprietary data, BSEE is required by the OCS Lands Act to make available to the public certain information submitted on Forms BSEE– 0123 and -0123S. The information on the forms is as follows: BSEE–0123 Heading: BSEE uses the information to identify the type of proposed drilling activity for which approval is requested. Well at Total Depth/Surface: Information utilized to identify the location (area, block, lease, latitude and longitude) of the proposed drilling activity. Significant Markers Anticipated: Identification of significant geologic formations, structures and/or horizons that the lessee or operator expects to encounter. This information, in conjunction with seismic data, is needed to correlate with other wells drilled in the area to assess the risks and hazards inherent in drilling operations. Question/Information: The information is used to ascertain the adequacy of the drilling fluids (mud) program to ensure control of the well, the adequacy of the surface casing compliance with EPA offshore pollutant discharge requirements and the shut in of adjacent wells to ensure safety while moving a rig on and off a drilling location, as well that the worst case discharge scenario information reflects the well and is updated if applicable. 12123 This information is also provided in the course of electronically requesting approval of drilling operations via eWell. BSEE–0123S Heading: BSEE uses this information to identify the lease operator, rig name, rig elevation, water depth, type well (exploratory, development), and the presence of H2S and other data which is needed to assess operational risks and safety. Well Design Information: This engineering data identifies casing size, pressure rating, setting depth and current volume, hole size, mud weight, blowout preventer (BOP) and well bore designs, formation and BOP test data and other criteria. The information is utilized by BSEE engineers to verify operational safety and ensure well control to prevent blowouts and other hazards to personnel and the environment. This form accommodates requested data collection for successive sections of the borehole as drilling proceeds toward total depth below each intermediate casing point. Frequency: On occasion and as required by regulations. Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal OCS oil, gas, or sulfur lessees and/or operators. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 63,561 hours and $862,104 non-hour costs. The following chart 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.

The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of certain new pneumatic offthe-road tires from India and Sri Lanka 1 The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)). 2 The Commission also finds that imports subject to Commerce’s affirmative critical circumstances determination are not likely to undermine seriously the remedial effect of the countervailing duty orders on certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires from India and Sri Lanka. 3 Commissioner Dean A. Pinkert did not participate in these investigations. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:46 Feb 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 were subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and that imports of certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires from India were not dumped within the meaning of 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the Commission’s investigations and of a public hearing to be held in connection therewith was given by posting copies of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal Register on September 12, 2016 (81 FR 62760). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on January 4, 2017, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel. The Commission made these determinations pursuant to sections 705(b) and 735(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)). It completed and filed its determinations in these investigations on February 23, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: 30 CFR part 250, Application for Permit to Drill (APD, 
Revised APD), Supplemental APD Information Sheet, and all supporting 
documentation.
    Form(s): BSEE-0123 and -0123S.
    OMB Control Number: 1014-0025.
    Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act at 43 U.S.C. 
1334 authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and 
regulations necessary for the administration of the leasing provisions 
of that Act related to mineral resources on the OCS. Such rules and 
regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, 
right-of-way, or a right-of-use and easement. Operations on the OCS 
must preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources in a 
manner that is consistent with the need to make such resources 
available to meet the Nation's energy needs as rapidly as possible; to 
balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, 
marine, and coastal environments; to ensure the public a fair and 
equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and 
maintain free enterprise competition.
    In addition to the general rulemaking authority of the OCSLA at 43 
U.S.C. 1334, section 301(a) of the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty 
Management Act (FOGRMA), 30 U.S.C. 1751(a), grants authority to the 
Secretary to prescribe such rules and regulations as are reasonably 
necessary to carry out FOGRMA's provisions. While the majority of 
FOGRMA is directed to royalty collection and enforcement, some 
provisions apply to offshore operations. For example, section 108 of 
FOGRMA, 30 U.S.C. 1718, grants the Secretary broad authority to inspect 
lease sites for the purpose of determining whether there is compliance 
with the mineral leasing laws. Section 109(c)(2) and (d)(1), 30 U.S.C. 
1719(c)(2) and (d)(1), impose substantial civil penalties for failure 
to permit lawful inspections and for knowing or willful preparation or 
submission of false, inaccurate, or misleading reports, records, or 
other information. Because the Secretary has delegated some of the 
authority under FOGRMA to BSEE, 30 U.S.C. 1751 is included as 
additional authority for these requirements.
    The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the 
Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104-133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 
1996), and OMB Circular A-25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the 
full cost of services that confer special benefits. Under the 
Department of the Interior's implementing policy, BSEE is required to 
charge fees for services that provide special benefits or privileges to 
an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those which 
accrue to the public at large. Applications for permits to drill are 
subject to cost recovery, and BSEE regulations specify a service fee 
for this request.
    This authority and responsibility are among those delegated to 
BSEE. The regulations at 30 CFR part 250 stipulates the various 
requirements that must be submitted with forms BSEE-0123, Application 
for Permit to Drill (APD), Revised APD, and BSEE-0123S, Supplemental 
APD Information Sheet. The forms and the numerous submittals included 
with them are the subject of this collection. There are no changes 
being made to the forms with this ICR submission. This request also 
covers any related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that BSEE 
issues to clarify, supplement, or provide

[[Page 12123]]

additional guidance on some aspects of our regulations.
    Most responses are mandatory, while some are required to obtain or 
retain a benefit. No questions of a sensitive nature are asked. BSEE 
will protect any confidential commercial or proprietary information 
according to section 26 of OCSLA (43 U.S.C. 1352); the Freedom of 
Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552); and DOI's implementing regulations (43 
CFR 2), and according to 30 CFR 250.197, Data and information to be 
made available to the public or for limited inspection, and 30 CFR part 
252, OCS Oil and Gas Information Program.
    BSEE uses the information from forms BSEE-0123 and BSEE-0123s to 
ensure safe drilling operations and to protect the human, marine, and 
coastal environment. Among other things, BSEE specifically uses the 
information to ensure: The drilling unit is fit for the intended 
purpose; the lessee or operator will not encounter geologic conditions 
that present a hazard to operations; equipment is maintained in a state 
of readiness and meets safety standards; each drilling crew is properly 
trained and able to promptly perform well-control activities at any 
time during well operations; compliance with safety standards; and the 
current regulations will provide for safe and proper field or reservoir 
development, resource evaluation, conservation, protection of 
correlative rights, safety, and environmental protection. We also 
review well records to ascertain whether drilling operations have 
encountered hydrocarbons or H2S and to ensure that H2S detection 
equipment, personnel protective equipment, and training of the crew are 
adequate for safe operations in zones known to contain H2S and zones 
where the presence of H2S is unknown.
    Also, we use the information to determine the conditions of a 
drilling site to avoid hazards inherent in drilling operations. 
Specifically, we use the information to evaluate the adequacy of a 
lessee's or operator's plan and equipment for drilling, sidetracking, 
or deepening operations. This includes the adequacy of the proposed 
casing design, casing setting depths, drilling fluid (mud) programs, 
cementing programs, and BOP systems to ascertain that the proposed 
operations will be conducted in an operationally safe manner that 
provides adequate protection for the environment. The BSEE also reviews 
the information to ensure conformance with specific provisions of the 
lease. In addition, except for proprietary data, BSEE is required by 
the OCS Lands Act to make available to the public certain information 
submitted on Forms BSEE-0123 and -0123S. The information on the forms 
is as follows:

BSEE-0123

    Heading: BSEE uses the information to identify the type of proposed 
drilling activity for which approval is requested.
    Well at Total Depth/Surface: Information utilized to identify the 
location (area, block, lease, latitude and longitude) of the proposed 
drilling activity.
    Significant Markers Anticipated: Identification of significant 
geologic formations, structures and/or horizons that the lessee or 
operator expects to encounter. This information, in conjunction with 
seismic data, is needed to correlate with other wells drilled in the 
area to assess the risks and hazards inherent in drilling operations.
    Question/Information: The information is used to ascertain the 
adequacy of the drilling fluids (mud) program to ensure control of the 
well, the adequacy of the surface casing compliance with EPA offshore 
pollutant discharge requirements and the shut in of adjacent wells to 
ensure safety while moving a rig on and off a drilling location, as 
well that the worst case discharge scenario information reflects the 
well and is updated if applicable. This information is also provided in 
the course of electronically requesting approval of drilling operations 
via eWell.

BSEE-0123S

    Heading: BSEE uses this information to identify the lease operator, 
rig name, rig elevation, water depth, type well (exploratory, 
development), and the presence of H2S and other data which is needed to 
assess operational risks and safety.
    Well Design Information: This engineering data identifies casing 
size, pressure rating, setting depth and current volume, hole size, mud 
weight, blowout preventer (BOP) and well bore designs, formation and 
BOP test data and other criteria. The information is utilized by BSEE 
engineers to verify operational safety and ensure well control to 
prevent blowouts and other hazards to personnel and the environment. 
This form accommodates requested data collection for successive 
sections of the borehole as drilling proceeds toward total depth below 
each intermediate casing point.
    Frequency: On occasion and as required by regulations.
    Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal 
OCS oil, gas, or sulfur lessees and/or operators.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated 
annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 63,561 
hours and $862,104 non-hour costs. The following chart 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.

                                         $862,104 Non Hour Cost Burden
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* In the future, BSEE may require electronic filing of some submissions.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have 
identified one non-hour cost burden associated with the collection of 
information for a total of $862,104. It is the $2,113 service fee 
required to recover the Federal Government's processing costs of the 
APD. We have not identified any other non-hour cost burdens associated 
with this collection of information.
    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 September 22, 
2016, we published a Federal Register notice (81 FR 65399) announcing 
that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided 
the required 60-day comment period. In addition, Sec.  250.199 provides 
the OMB Control Number for the information collection requirements 
imposed by the regulations and forms. The regulations also inform the 
public that they may comment at any time on the collections of 
information and provides the address to which they should send 
comments. We received no comments in response to the Federal Register 
notice, nor did we receive any unsolicited 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.
