Abstract: The Secretary of the United States Department of the Interior is responsible for mineral resource development on Federal and Indian lands and the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). Under various laws, the Secretary’s responsibility is to carry out a comprehensive inspection, collection, and fiscal and production accounting and auditing system that provides the capability to: (1) Accurately determine mineral royalties, interest, and other payments owed, (2) collect and account for such amounts in a timely manner, and (3) disburse the funds collected. The Secretary also has a trust responsibility to seek advice and information from Indian beneficiaries. ONRR performs the minerals revenue management functions for the Secretary and assists the Secretary in carrying out the Department’s trust responsibility for Indian lands. The laws pertaining to mineral leases on Federal and Indian lands and the OCS are posted at http://www.onrr.gov/ Laws_R_D/PubLaws/default.htm. (a) General Information: When a company or an individual enters into a lease to explore, develop, produce, and dispose of minerals from Federal or Indian lands, that company or individual agrees to pay the lessor a royalty share in value or volume of production from the leased lands. The lessee also agrees to report certain information to the lessor related to the disposition of the minerals. This information is generally available within a lessee’s records or others involved in developing, transporting, processing, purchasing, or selling Federal and Indian minerals. The information collected includes data necessary to ensure correct product valuation and royalty payments. (b) Information Collections: This ICR covers unique reporting circumstances under 30 CFR part 1218 addressing (1) cross-lease netting in the calculation of late-payment interest; (2) a lessee’s designation of designee; and (3) Tribal permission for recoupment on Indian oil and gas leases. (1) Cross-Lease Netting in Calculation of Late-Payment Interest: Regulations under § 1218.54 require ONRR to assess interest on unpaid or underpaid amounts. ONRR distributes latepayment interest revenues to States, Indian Tribes, and the U.S. Treasury VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:21 Jun 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 based on financial lease distribution information. Current regulations under § 1218.42 provide that an overpayment on a lease or leases may be offset against an underpayment on a different lease or leases to determine the net payment subject to interest when certain conditions are met. ONRR calls this process cross-lease netting. The payor must demonstrate that a cross-lease netting exception exists by submitting production reports, pipeline allocation reports, or other similar documentary evidence. This information is necessary for ONRR to calculate the correct interest amount and ensure that it collects in full all monies owed to the Federal Government. (2) Designation of Designee: The Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act (FOGRMA) defines a ‘‘lessee’’ to include the record-title holder and also any operating-rights owners if those rights were severed from the record title. See 30 U.S.C. 1702(7). FOGRMA states that operating-rights owners are primarily liable and recordtitle owners are secondarily liable for payment obligations on Federal oil and gas leases. See 30 U.S.C. 1712(a). A lessee may designate a person to make payments on its behalf. To do so, FOGRMA requires the lessee to ‘‘notify the Secretary . . . in writing of such designation.’’ ONRR created form ONRR–4425, Designation Form for Royalty Payment Responsibility, to request the information necessary for a lessee to comply with FOGRMA’s requirement to designate a designee. ONRR requires this information to ensure proper mineral revenue collection. (3) Tribal Permission for Recoupment on Indian Oil and Gas Leases: A lessee may recoup overpayments on Tribal Indian leases against royalties or other revenues owed in a month on other leases where that Tribe is the lessor. To do so, lessees must comply with § 12l8.53(b), which requires a lessee to receive a Tribe’s written permission to recoup overpayments on one lease against another lease where that Tribe is the lessor. The payor must provide ONRR with a copy of the Tribe’s written permission. Title: Collection of Monies Due the Federal Government. OMB Control Number: 1012–0008. Bureau Form Number: Form ONRR– 4425.
