SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 20, 2019, the Secretary of 
Commerce (Secretary) received a ``Notice of Appeal'' filed by 
WesternGeco pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), 
16 U.S.C. 1451 et seq., and implementing regulations found at 15 CFR 
part 930, subpart H. The ``Notice of Appeal'' is taken from an 
objection by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental 
Control to a consistency certification for a proposed project to 
conduct a marine Geological and Geophysical seismic survey in the 
Atlantic Ocean. This matter constitutes an appeal of an ``energy 
project'' within the meaning of the CZMA regulations, see 15 CFR 
930.123(c).
    Under the CZMA, the Secretary may override South Carolina's 
objection on grounds that the project is consistent with the objectives 
or purposes of the CZMA, or is necessary in the interest of national 
security. To make the determination that the proposed activity is 
``consistent with the objectives or purposes of the CZMA,'' the 
Department must find that: (1) The proposed activity furthers the 
national interest as articulated in sections 302 or 303 of the CZMA, in 
a significant or substantial manner; (2) the national interest 
furthered by the proposed activity outweighs the activity's adverse 
coastal effects, when those effects are considered separately or 
cumulatively; and (3) no reasonable alternative is available that would 
permit the proposed activity to be conducted in a manner consistent 
with the enforceable policies of the applicable coastal management 
program. 15 CFR 930.121. To make the determination that the proposed 
activity is ``necessary in the interest of national security,'' the 
Secretary must find that a national defense or other national security 
interest would be significantly impaired if the proposed activity is 
not permitted to go forward as proposed. 15 CFR 930.122.
    The Secretary must close the decision record in a Federal 
consistency appeal 160 days after the Notice of Appeal is published in 
the Federal Register. 15 CFR 930.130(a)(1). However, the CZMA 
authorizes the Secretary to stay closing the decision record for up to 
60 days when the Secretary determines it necessary to receive, on an 
expedited basis, any supplemental information specifically requested by 
the Secretary to complete a consistency review or any clarifying 
information submitted by a party to the proceeding related to 
information in the consolidated record compiled by the lead Federal 
permitting agency. 15 CFR 930.130(a)(2), (3).
    After reviewing the decision record developed to date, the 
Secretary has decided to solicit supplemental and clarifying 
information from the parties pertaining to the withholding of certain 
information as proprietary. In order to allow receipt of this 
information, the Secretary hereby stays closure of the decision record, 
currently scheduled to occur on March 30, 2020, until April 13, 2020.
    NOAA has provided access to publicly available materials and 
related documents comprising the appeal record on the following
