Cutting Redundancy
The current OMB inventory for this collection is 46,466 burden hours. In this submission, we are requesting, 37,750 hours. This represents a program change decrease of -152 hours and is due to BSEE deleting the hours in this collection pertaining to §§ 250.1150-1167 - general departure and alternative compliance requests. The ability to request a general departure or alternative compliance are throughout all of 30 CFR Part 250 and the hour burdens are approved under 1014-0022 (subpart A); hence, avoiding double-counting hour burdens. This also represents an adjustment decrease of -8,564 hours due to re-estimating the number of responses, times the hour burden submitted by respondents. The current OMB non-hour cost burden inventory is $1,077,816. In this submission, we are requesting a total of $1,067,544. This represents an adjustment decrease of -$52,011. The decrease is due to less requests for approval to downhole commingle hydrocarbons in §§ 250.1158 and 250.1167 from the previous 3-year collection and re-estimating the average number of annual responses. This also represents a program change increase of $41,739. This increase is due to rulemaking 1014-AA54, Oil and Gas and Sulfur Operations in the OCS-Adjustment of Service Fees [87 FR 19799], published April 6, 2022 (effective same date).
