Abstract: Reclamation delivers Colorado River water to water users for diversion and beneficial consumptive use in the States of Arizona, California, and Nevada. The Consolidated Decree of the United States Supreme Court in the case of Arizona v. California, et al., entered March 27, 2006 (547 U.S. 150 (2006)), requires the Secretary of the Interior to prepare and maintain complete, detailed, and accurate records of diversions of water, return flow, and consumptive use and make these records available at least annually. The information collected ensures that a State or water user within a State does not exceed its authorized use of Colorado River Water. Water users are obligated by provisions in their water delivery contracts to provide Reclamation information on diversions and return flows. Reclamation determines the consumptive use by subtracting return flow from diversions or by other engineering means. Title of Collection: Diversions, Return Flow, and Consumptive Use of Colorado River Water in the Lower Colorado River Basin. OMB Control Number: 1006–0015. Form Number: Forms LC–72A, LC– 72B, Custom Forms. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. A Federal Register notice with a 60day public comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on September 7, 2018 (83 FR 45463). No comments were received. We are again soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is described below. We are especially interested in public comments addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper functions of BSEE; (2) Will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) Is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) How might BSEE enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the E:\FR\FM\11FEN1.SGM 11FEN1 3244 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 28 / Monday, February 11, 2019 / Notices information to be collected; and (5) How might BSEE minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. 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. Abstract: The regulations at 30 CFR part 250, subpart K, concern Oil and Gas Production Requirements (including the associated forms), and are the subject of this collection. This request also covers any related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that BSEE issues to clarify, supplement, or provide additional guidance on some aspects of our regulations. The information collected under Subpart K is used in our efforts to conserve natural resources, prevent waste, and protect correlative rights, including the Government’s royalty interest. Specifically, BSEE uses the information to: • Evaluate requests to burn liquid hydrocarbons and vent and flare gas to ensure that these requests are appropriate; • determine if a maximum production or efficient rate is required; and, • review applications for downhole commingling to ensure that action does not result in harm to ultimate recovery. Form BSEE–0126, Well Potential Test Report, BSEE uses this information for reservoir, reserves, and conservation analyses, including the determination of maximum production rates (MPRs) when necessary for certain oil and gas completions. This requirement implements the conservation provisions of the OCS Lands Act and 30 CFR 250. The information obtained from the well potential test is essential to determine if an MPR is necessary for a well and to establish the appropriate rate. It is not possible to specify an MPR in the absence of information about the production rate capability (potential) of the well. Form BSEE–0128, Semiannual Well Test Report, BSEE uses this information to evaluate the results of well tests to determine if reservoirs are being depleted in a manner that will lead to VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Feb 08, 2019 Jkt 247001 the greatest ultimate recovery of hydrocarbons. This information is collected to determine the capability of hydrocarbon wells and to evaluate and verify an operator’s approved maximum production rate if assigned. The form was designed to present current well data on a semiannual basis to permit the updating of permissible producing rates, and to provide the basis for estimates of currently remaining recoverable gas reserves. Title of Collection: 30 CFR part 250, subpart K, Oil and Gas Production Requirements. OMB Control Number: 1014–0019. Form Number: BSEE–0126—Well Potential Test Report, and BSEE–0128— Semiannual Well Test Report. Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Potential respondents comprise Federal OCS oil, gas, and sulfur lessees/ operators and holders of pipeline rightsof-way. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: Not all of the potential respondents will submit information in any given year, and some may submit multiple times. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 7,688. Estimated Completion Time per Response: Varies from 1 hour to 100 hours, depending on activity. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 46,466. Respondent’s Obligation: Most responses are mandatory, while others are required to obtain or retain benefits. Frequency of Collection: On occasion, monthly, and varies by section. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: $1,077,816. An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
