In the Final RP2/EA, the FL TIG analyzed projects to help restore injured habitats, sea turtles, marine mammals, and birds, and to compensate for lost recreational use in the Florida Restoration Area as a result of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill. The Final RP2/EA describes and, in conjunction with the associated FONSI, selects the preferred restoration projects considered by the FL TIG to partially restore natural resources and ecological services injured or lost as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The approximate cost to implement the FL TIG's proposed action is $62,000,000. The purpose of this notice is to inform the public of the availability of the Final RP2/EA and FONSI.

Oil and Gas and Sulfur Operations on the Outer Continental Shelf-Maximum Daily Civil Penalty Amounts for Violations of the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act
This final rule amends the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) regulations that set Maximum Daily Civil Penalty (MDCP) amounts for violations of the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act (FOGRMA). The amended BSEE regulations will cross- reference regulations of the Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR) that also set MDCP amounts for FOGRMA violations. This cross-reference will ensure consistency between BSEE's FOGRMA MDCP amounts and ONRR's FOGRMA MDCP amounts. It will also ensure consistent compliance with the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (FCPIAAIA of 2015) and related Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance, while reducing unnecessary duplication of effort and costs to the agency.
