SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: 30 CFR Part 250, Subpart A, General.
    Form(s): BSEE-0132, BSEE-0143, and BSEE-1832.
    OMB Control Number: 1014-NEW.
    Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended 
(43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the 
Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations necessary 
for the administration of the leasing provisions of the Act related to 
mineral resources on the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to 
all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-way, or a right-of-use 
and easement. Operations on the OCS must preserve, protect, and develop 
oil and natural gas resources in a manner that is consistent with the 
need to make such resources available to meet the Nation's energy needs 
as rapidly as possible; to balance orderly energy resource development 
with protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; to ensure 
the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and 
to preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Section 1332(6) 
states that ``operations in the [O]uter Continental Shelf should be 
conducted in a safe manner by well trained personnel using technology, 
precautions, and other techniques sufficient to prevent or minimize the 
likelihood of blowouts, loss of well control, fires, spillages, 
physical obstructions to other users of the waters or subsoil and 
seabed, or other occurrences which may cause damage to the environment 
or to property or endanger life or health.''
    The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the 
Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104-133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 
1996), and OMB Circular A-25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the 
full cost of services that confer special benefits. This authority and 
responsibility are among those delegated to BSEE. A request for 
approval required in Subpart A is subject to cost recovery, and BSEE 
regulations specify a cost recovery fee for this request.
    Regulations implementing these responsibilities are delegated to 
BSEE. Therefore, this ICR addresses the regulations under 30 CFR part 
250, subpart A. This request also covers the related Notices to Lessees 
and Operators (NTLs) that BSEE issues to clarify and provide additional 
guidance on some aspects of our regulations.
    To accommodate the split of regulations from the Bureau of Ocean 
Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement to BSEE (76 FR 64432), 
BSEE is requesting OMB approval of the

[[Page 33482]]

already approved burden hours that were previously under 1010-0114 to 
reflect BSEE's new 1014 numbering system.
    Responses are mandatory or are required to obtain or retain 
benefits. No questions of a sensitive nature are asked. Requests for 
BSEE approval may contain proprietary information related to 
performance standards or alternative approaches to conducting 
operations different from those approved and specified in BSEE 
regulations. We will protect proprietary information according to the 
Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552), under its implementing 
regulations (43 CFR 2); as well as 30 CFR 250.197, Data and information 
to be made available to the public or for limited inspection, and 30 
CFR 252, OCS Oil and Gas Information Program.
    BSEE uses the information collected under the subpart A regulations 
to ensure that operations on the OCS are carried out in a safe and 
pollution-free manner, do not interfere with the rights of other users 
on the OCS, and balance the protection and development of OCS 
resources. Specifically, we use the information collected to:
     Review records of formal crane operator and rigger 
training, crane operator qualifications, crane inspections, testing, 
and maintenance to ensure that lessees/operators perform operations in 
a safe and workmanlike manner and that equipment is maintained in a 
safe condition. BSEE also uses the information to make certain that all 
new and existing cranes installed on OCS fixed platforms must be 
equipped with anti-two block safety devices, and to assure that uniform 
methods are employed by lessees for load testing of cranes.
     Review welding plans, procedures, and records to ensure 
that welding is conducted in a safe and workmanlike manner by trained 
and experienced personnel.
     Provide lessees/operators greater flexibility to comply 
with regulatory requirements through approval of alternative equipment 
or procedures and departures to regulations if they demonstrate equal 
or better compliance with the appropriate performance standards.
     Ensure that injection of gas promotes conservation of 
natural resources, prevents waste, and that subsurface storage of 
natural gas does not unduly interfere with development and production 
operations under existing leases.
     Record the agent and local agent empowered to receive 
notices and comply with regulatory orders issued.
     Provide for orderly development of leases through the use 
of information to determine the appropriateness of lessee/operator 
requests for suspension of operations, including production.
     Improve safety and environmental protection on the OCS 
through collection and analysis of accident reports to ascertain the 
cause of the accidents and to determine ways to prevent recurrences.
     Ascertain when the lease ceases production or when the 
last well ceases production in order to determine the 180th day after 
the date of completion of the last production. BSEE will use this 
information to efficiently maintain the lessee/operator lease status.
     Be informed when there could be a major disruption in the 
availability and supply of natural gas and oil due to natural 
occurrences/hurricanes, to advise the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) in case 
of the need to rescue offshore workers in distress, to monitor damage 
to offshore platforms and drilling rigs, and to advise the news media 
and interested public entities when production is shut-in and when 
resumed. The Gulf of Mexico OCS Region (GOMR) uses a reporting form, 
BSEE-0132, Evacuation Statistics, for respondents to report evacuation 
statistics when necessary. This form requires the respondent to submit 
general information such as company name, contact, date, time, 
telephone number, as well as number of platforms and drilling rigs 
evacuated and not evacuated. We also require production shut-in 
statistics for oil (BOPD) and gas (MMSCFD).
     Form BSEE-0143, Facility/Equipment Damage Report, assists 
lessees, lease operators, and pipeline right-of-way holders when 
reporting damage by a hurricane, earthquake, or other natural 
phenomenon. They are required to submit an initial damage report to the 
Regional Supervisor within 48 hours after completing the initial 
evaluation of the damage and then, subsequent reports, monthly and 
immediately, whenever information changes until the damaged structure 
or equipment is returned to service.
     Allow lessees/operators who exhibit unacceptable 
performance an incremental approach to improving their overall 
performance prior to a final decision to disqualify a lessee/operator 
or to pursue debarment proceedings through the execution of a 
performance improvement plan (PIP). The subpart A regulations do not 
address the actual process that we will follow in pursuing the 
disqualification of operators under Sec. Sec.  250.135 and 250.136. 
However, our internal enforcement procedures include allowing such 
operators to demonstrate a commitment to acceptable performance by the 
submission of a PIP.
     Determine that respondents have corrected all Incidents of 
Non-Compliance (INC)(s), Form BSEE-1832, identified during inspections. 
BSEE issues this form to the operator and the operator then corrects 
the INC(s), signs and returns the form to the BSEE Regional Supervisor 
within 14 days of issuance.
    Frequency: On occasion; monthly, daily, or varies by section.
    Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise Federal 
oil, gas, or sulphur OCS lessees and/or operators.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated 
annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 50,859 
hours. The following chart details the individual components and 
estimated hour burdens. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that 
respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their 
activities. We consider these to be usual and customary and took that 
into account in estimating the burden.

                                   ........................  ..............    $3,268,848 Non-Hour Cost Burdens
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Cost recovery monies collected are based on actual submittals through Pay.gov for FY 2011.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have 
identified one non-hour cost burden. Section 250.171 requests a cost 
recovery fee for a Suspension of Operations or a Production Request 
(SOO/SOP). We have not identified any other non-hour cost burdens 
associated with this collection of information. We estimate a total 
reporting non-hour cost burden of $3,268,848.
    Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) 
provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of 
information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 
Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated 
to respond.
    Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) 
requires each agency ``* * * to provide notice * * * and otherwise 
consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning 
each proposed collection of information * * *'' Agencies must 
specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the collection 
is necessary or useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, 
usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) 
minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of 
technology.
    To comply with the public consultation process, on February 3, 
2012, we published a Federal Register notice (77 FR 5561) announcing 
that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided 
the required 60-day comment period. In addition, the Sec.  250.199 
regulation informs the public that they may comment at any time on the 
collections of information and provides the address to which they 
should send comments. We have received no comments in response to these 
efforts.
    Public Availability of Comments: Before including your address, 
phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information 
in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment--
including your personal identifying information--may be made publicly 
available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold 
your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot 
guarantee that we will be able to do so.
