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 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.

Abstract: The regulations at 30 CFR part 250, subpart G, concern well operations and equipment regulatory requirements of oil, gas, and sulphur operations in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) (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. BSEE uses the information to ensure safe drilling, workover, completion, and decommissioning operations and to protect the human, marine, and coastal environment. BSEE analyzes and evaluates these information/ requirements to reduce the likelihood of an event similar to Deepwater Horizon and to reduce the risk of fatalities, injuries, and spills. BSEE also utilizes these requirements in the approval, disapproval, or modification process for well operations. Specifically, BSEE uses the information in Subpart G to ensure: • Certain well designs and operations have been reviewed by appropriate third parties/engineers/classification societies and that, after one year, have been approved by BSEE; • rig tracking data is available to locate rigs during major storms; VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:21 Nov 26, 2019 Jkt 250001 • casing or equipment repairs are acceptable and tested; • up-to-date engineering documents are available; • the BOP and associated components are fit for service for its intended use; • that the BOP will function as intended; • that BOP components are properly maintained and inspected; • the proper engineering reviews and approvals for all BOP designs, repairs, and modifications are met. BSEE uses the information obtained from Rig Movement Notification Report, Form BSEE–0144, to schedule inspections and verify that the equipment being used complies with approved permits. The information on this form is used by all 3 regions, but primarily in the GOM, to ascertain the precise arrival and departure of all rigs in OCS waters in the GOM. The accurate location of these rigs is necessary to facilitate the scheduling of inspections by BSEE personnel. Title of Collection: 30 CFR part 250, subpart G, Well Operations and Equipment. OMB Control Number: 1014–0028. Form Number: Form BSEE–0144. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Potential respondents are comprised of Federal OCS oil, gas, and sulphur lessees/operators and holders of pipeline rights-of-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: 43,408. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 6 minutes to 2,160 hours, depending on activity. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 160,842. Respondent’s Obligation: Most responses are mandatory, while others are required to obtain or retain benefits, or are voluntary. Frequency of Collection: Submissions are generally on occasion, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, biennially, and as a result of situations encountered depending upon the requirement.
