Download as PDF 58786 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 225 / Wednesday, November 21, 2018 / Notices basis for the BLM’s Resource Management Plans. The BLM conducts planning within the NPR–A with an IAP. The BLM complies with all applicable laws in the preparation of the IAP, including the National Environmental Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act, Marine Mammal Protection Act, and the National Historic Preservation Act. Purpose and Need for Action The BLM is developing a new IAP/EIS to determine the appropriate management of all BLM-managed lands in the NPR–A in a manner consistent with existing statutory direction and Secretarial Order 3352. Secretarial Order 3352 directs the development of a schedule to ‘‘effectuate the lawful review and development of an IAP for the NPR–A that strikes an appropriate balance of promoting development while protecting surface resources.’’ The Naval Petroleum Reserves Production Act, as amended, and its implementing regulations require oil and gas leasing in the NPR–A and the protection of surface values consistent with exploration, development and transportation of oil and gas. Proposed Action The BLM will be preparing a new IAP/EIS, which is intended to supersede the 2013 IAP/EIS ROD and, depending on the alternative selected, may supersede the 2008 Colville River Special Area Management Plan, as amended by the 2013 IAP/EIS ROD. Lead and Cooperating Agencies The BLM is the lead agency for the IAP/EIS. The BLM has extended invitations to participate as cooperating agencies to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Marine Fisheries Service, the State of Alaska, the North Slope Borough, the National Park Service, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, and the U.S. Geological Survey. khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Responsible Official The Secretary of the Interior is the responsible official. Nature of Decision To Be Made Consistent with the Naval Petroleum Reserves Production Act, the IAP/EIS will address a narrower range of multiple use management than a resource management plan (e.g., it will not contemplate opening lands to hard rock or coal mining). The IAP/EIS will include: A consideration of a range of alternatives that make lands available for leasing; an examination of current special area boundaries; and, a VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:08 Nov 20, 2018 Jkt 247001 consideration of new or revised lease stipulations and best management practices. The IAP/EIS would also ensure that the BLM’s land management will provide the opportunity, subject to appropriate conditions developed through a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, to construct pipelines and other necessary infrastructure to bring oil and gas resources from offshore or adjacent leases to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System or a future gas pipeline from the North Slope. The IAP/EIS would also consider the potential for a road system connecting communities across the North Slope. Scoping Process This notice of intent initiates the scoping process, which guides the development of the IAP/EIS. The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine the management decisions and resources to be addressed and the issues for analysis. The BLM will work collaboratively with interested parties to identify the management decisions best suited to local, regional, and national needs and concerns. The BLM must receive all comments by the end of the scoping comment period to be included in the scoping report. The most useful comments are substantive comments that address the following topics: Areas available for leasing, special area boundaries, lease stipulations and best management practices, and resource issues to be analyzed. You may submit written comments on management decisions, resources to be addressed, and issues for analysis to the BLM at any of the public scoping meetings, or you may use any of the methods listed in the ADDRESSES section above. 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. Although you may ask the BLM to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, the BLM cannot provide any guarantees that it will be able to do so. Authority: 40 CFR 1501.7. Ted A. Murphy, Acting State Director, Alaska.
