FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Abstract: This information collection request concerns the paperwork requirements in the regulations in 30 CFR part 551, Geological and Geophysical (G&G) Explorations of the Outer Continental Shelf. This request also covers Form BOEM–0327. Section 11(g) of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA), as amended (43 U.S.C. 1340(g)), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations to govern the issuance of permits for G&G exploration on the OCS. The OCSLA at § 11 states that ‘‘any person authorized by the Secretary may conduct geological and geophysical explorations in the [O]uter Continental Shelf, which do not interfere with or endanger actual operations under any lease maintained or granted pursuant to this subchapter, and which are not unduly harmful to aquatic life in such area.’’ The section further provides that permits to conduct such activities may be issued only if it is determined that: The applicant is qualified; the activities will not interfere with or endanger operations under any lease issued or maintained pursuant to OCSLA; and the activities will not be unduly harmful to aquatic life, result in pollution, create hazardous or unsafe conditions, unreasonably interfere with other uses of the area, or disturb any site, structure, or object of historical or archaeological significance. Applicants for permits are required to submit Form BOEM–0327 to provide the information necessary to evaluate their qualifications, and upon approval, respondents are issued a permit. Once an application is reviewed and approved, a permit (Form BOEM–0328 or Form BOEM–0329) is signed by BOEM and the permittee. The Independent Offices Appropriations Act of 1950 (31 U.S.C. 9701) and the Omnibus Appropriations Bill of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–134, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 1996), as further explained in OMB Circular A–25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that confer special benefits. All G&G permits are subject to cost recovery, and BOEM regulations specify service fees for these requests. Regulations to carry out these responsibilities are contained in 30 CFR part 551 and are the subject of this information collection renewal. BOEM uses the information to: • Authorize exploration to identify oil, gas, sulfur, and mineral resources in the OCS; • Ensure the receipt of fair value for mineral resources; • Ensure that the exploration activities do not cause harm to the E:\FR\FM\23SEN1.SGM 23SEN1
