Abstract: This information collection pertains to onshore oil and gas geophysical exploration on Federal lands. Surface-disturbing activities associated with such exploration generally are regulated by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) or by the U.S. Forest Service (FS), depending on which agency manages the surface estate. This information collection request also includes permits for oil and gas geophysical exploration on Federal lands other than those managed by the BLM or the Forest Service when an agency of the Department of Defense refers an application for exploration to the BLM (see 43 CFR 3153.1); or when an application for exploration involves a project that would cross lands managed by the Bureau of Reclamation. The BLM and FS need the information in order to manage surface operations that are under their respective jurisdictions. Title of Collection: Onshore Oil and Gas Geophysical Exploration. OMB Control Number: 1004–0162. Form Numbers: BLM Forms 3150–4 and 3150–5; FS Forms 2800–16 and 2800–16a. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Those who wish to participate in the evaluation, development, and utilization of oil and gas resources for mineral potential.
