While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personally identifiable information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Abstract: The information collection request concerns the paperwork requirements in the regulations under 30 CFR part 550, part 556, and part 560, Leasing of Sulfur or Oil and Gas in the Outer Continental Shelf. The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq., and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations to administer leasing of the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease. 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; balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; ensure the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Also, the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA) prohibits certain lease bidding arrangements (42 U.S.C. 6213(c)). The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the Omnibus Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 104–133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 1996), and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that provide special benefits. Under the Department of the Interior’s (DOI) implementing policy, BOEM is required to charge the full cost for services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those that accrue to the public at large. Approval of transfer of a lease or interest are subject to cost recovery, and BOEM regulations specify the filing fee for these transfer applications. This notice concerns the reporting and recordkeeping requirements of BOEM regulations at 30 CFR part 550, subpart J, Pipelines and Pipeline Rightsof-Way; 30 CFR part 556, Leasing of Sulphur or Oil and Gas in the OCS; 30 CFR part 560, OCS Oil and Gas Leasing; as well as the related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that clarify and provide additional guidance on some aspects of these regulations. This ICR also concerns the use of forms to PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 process bonds, transfer interest in leases, and file relinquishments. BOEM protects proprietary information in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and the Department of the Interior’s implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under regulations at 30 CFR 580.70 and applicable sections of 30 CFR parts 550 and 552 promulgated pursuant to Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA) at 43 U.S.C. 1352(c). Title of Collection: Leasing of Sulfur or Oil and Gas in the Outer Continental Shelf (30 CFR part 550, part 556, and part 560). OMB Control Number: 1010–0006. Form Number: • BOEM–0150, Assignment of Record Title Interest in Federal OCS Oil and Gas Lease, • BOEM–0151, Assignment of Operating Rights Interest in Federal OCS Oil and Gas Lease, • BOEM–0152, Relinquishment of Federal OCS Oil and Gas Lease, • BOEM–2028, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Mineral Lessee’s or Operator’s Bond, • BOEM–2028A, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Mineral Lessee’s or Operator’s Supplemental Bond, and • BOEM–2030, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Pipeline Right-of-Way Grant Bond. Type of Review: Renewal of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Federal oil, gas, or sulphur lessees and/or operators. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 10,307 responses. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 19,054 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory or Required to Obtain or Retain a Benefit. Frequency of Collection: On occasion or annual. Total Estimated Annual Non-hour Burden Cost: $766,053. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: We expect the burden estimate for the renewal will be 19,054 hours, which reflects a decrease of 400 hour burdens. A reduction of 80 hours is related to respondents’ submission of designation of operator form (Form BOEM–1123); this burden is now captured in OMB control number 1010–0114. And the remaining reduction of 320 hours is for activities within 30 CFR part 556, subpart B that are not considered information collection activities under 5 CFR 1320.3(h)(4), but were previously counted as information collection activities.

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.
    We are soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is described 
below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the 
following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper 
functions of BOEM; (2) Will this information be processed and used in a 
timely manner; (3) Is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) How might 
BOEM enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (5) How might BOEM minimize the burden of this 
collection on the respondents, including minimizing the burden through 
the use of information technology?
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of 
public record. We will include or summarize each comment in our request 
to OMB for approval of this ICR. Before including your address, phone 
number, email address, or other personally identifiable information in 
your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment--including 
your personally identifiable information--may be made publicly 
available at any time. In order for BOEM to withhold from disclosure 
your personally identifiable information, you must identify any 
information contained in the submittal of your comments that, if 
released, would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of your 
personal privacy. You must also briefly describe any possible harmful 
consequences of the disclosure of information, such as embarrassment, 
injury, or other harm. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold 
your personally identifiable information from public review, we cannot 
guarantee that we will be able to do so.
    Abstract: The information collection request concerns the paperwork 
requirements in the regulations under 30 CFR part 550, part 556, and 
part 560, Leasing of Sulfur or Oil and Gas in the Outer Continental 
Shelf.
    The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 
1331 et seq., and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of 
the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations to administer leasing 
of the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations 
conducted under a lease. 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; balance orderly energy resource development with 
protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; ensure the 
public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and 
preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Also, the Energy 
Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA) prohibits certain lease 
bidding arrangements (42 U.S.C. 6213(c)).
    The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the 
Omnibus Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 104-133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 
1996), and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-25, 
authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that 
provide special benefits. Under the Department of the Interior's (DOI) 
implementing policy, BOEM is required to charge the full cost for 
services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable 
non-Federal recipient above and beyond those that accrue to the public 
at large. Approval of transfer of a lease or interest are subject to 
cost recovery, and BOEM regulations specify the filing fee for these 
transfer applications.
    This notice concerns the reporting and recordkeeping requirements 
of BOEM regulations at 30 CFR part 550, subpart J, Pipelines and 
Pipeline Rights-of-Way; 30 CFR part 556, Leasing of Sulphur or Oil and 
Gas in the OCS; 30 CFR part 560, OCS Oil and Gas Leasing; as well as 
the related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that clarify and 
provide additional guidance on some aspects of these regulations. This 
ICR also concerns the use of forms to process bonds, transfer interest 
in leases, and file relinquishments.
    BOEM protects proprietary information in accordance with the 
Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and the Department of the 
Interior's implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under 
regulations at 30 CFR 580.70 and applicable sections of 30 CFR parts 
550 and 552 promulgated pursuant to Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act 
(OCSLA) at 43 U.S.C. 1352(c).
    Title of Collection: Leasing of Sulfur or Oil and Gas in the Outer 
Continental Shelf (30 CFR part 550, part 556, and part 560).
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0006.
    Form Number:
     BOEM-0150, Assignment of Record Title Interest in Federal 
OCS Oil and Gas Lease,
     BOEM-0151, Assignment of Operating Rights Interest in 
Federal OCS Oil and Gas Lease,
     BOEM-0152, Relinquishment of Federal OCS Oil and Gas 
Lease,
     BOEM-2028, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Mineral Lessee's 
or Operator's Bond,
     BOEM-2028A, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Mineral Lessee's 
or Operator's Supplemental Bond, and
     BOEM-2030, Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Pipeline Right-
of-Way Grant Bond.
    Type of Review: Renewal of a currently approved collection.
    Respondents/Affected Public: Federal oil, gas, or sulphur lessees 
and/or operators.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 10,307 responses.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 19,054 hours.
    Respondent's Obligation: Mandatory or Required to Obtain or Retain 
a Benefit.
    Frequency of Collection: On occasion or annual.
    Total Estimated Annual Non-hour Burden Cost: $766,053.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: We expect the 
burden estimate for the renewal will be 19,054 hours, which reflects a 
decrease of 400 hour burdens. A reduction of 80 hours is related to 
respondents' submission of designation of operator form (Form BOEM-
1123); this burden is now captured in OMB control number 1010-0114. And 
the remaining reduction of 320 hours is for activities within 30 CFR 
part 556, subpart B that are not considered information collection 
activities under 5 CFR 1320.3(h)(4), but were previously counted as 
information collection activities.
