(a) General Information: ONRR collects and uses this information to determine (i) the allowable direct, and allocable joint, costs and credits under § 1220.011 that are incurred during the lease term, (ii) the appropriate overhead allowance related to these costs permitted under § 1220.012, and (iii) the allowances for capital recovery calculated under § 1220.020. ONRR also collects this information to ensure that royalties or net profit share payments are accurately valued and appropriately paid. This ICR only effects oil and gas leases located on submerged Federal lands on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). (b) Information Collections: Title 30 CFR part 1220 covers the NPSL program and establishes reporting requirements to determine the net profit share base under § 1220.021 and calculate the net profit share payments due to the Federal government under § 1220.022. (1) NPSL Bidding System: To encourage exploration and development of oil and gas leases on submerged Federal lands on the OCS, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) promulgated regulations under 30 CFR part 260—Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing. BOEM also promulgated specific implementing regulations for the NPSL bidding system under § 260.110(d). BOEM established the NPSL bidding system to balance a fair market return to the Federal government for the lease of its public lands with a fair profit to companies risking their investment capital. The system provides an incentive for early, expeditious exploration and development, and provides for risk sharing between the lessee and Federal government. The NPSL bidding system incorporates a fixed capital recovery system that allows a lessee to recover exploration and development costs from production revenues, including a reasonable return on investment. (2) NPSL Capital Account: The Federal government does not receive a profit share payment from an NPSL until the lessee shows a credit balance in its capital account; that is, cumulative revenues and other credits exceed cumulative costs. Lessees multiply the credit balance by the net profit share rate (30 to 50 percent), which determines the amount of net profit share payment due to the Federal government. ONRR requires lessees to maintain an NPSL capital account for each lease under § 1220.010, which transfers to a new owner if sold. Following the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:28 Mar 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 cessation of production, ONRR also requires a lessee to provide either an annual or monthly report to the Federal government using data from the capital account until such time that the lease is terminated, expired, or relinquished. (3) NPSL Inventories: A NPSL lessee must notify BOEM of its intent to take inventory so that BOEM’s Director may be represented at the inventory taking under § 1220.032. The lessee must file a report after taking inventory, and report controllable material under § 1220.031. (4) NPSL Audits: When a non-operator of an NPSL calls for an audit, it must notify ONRR. When ONRR calls for an audit, the lessee must notify all nonoperators on the lease. These requirements are located under § 1220.033. Title of Collection: 30 CFR part 1220, OCS Net Profit Share Payment Reporting. OMB Control Number: 1012–0009. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Businesses. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 9 lessees. All nine lessees report monthly because all current NPSLs are in producing status. Because the requirements to establish a capital account under § 1220.010(a) and the capital account annual reporting under § 1220.031(a) are necessary only during the non-producing status of a lease, ONRR included only one response annually for those requirements, in case a new NPSL is established. ONRR did not include estimates of certain requirements performed in the normal course of business that are considered usual and customary. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 180. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 9 hours. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 1,584 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Frequency of Collection: Annual, monthly, and on occasion. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: None. 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.
