Correction of the Notice of Availability of the Proposed Notice of Sale for Proposed Sale 196.
On March 28, 2005, pursuant to 30 CFR 256.29(c) as a matter of information to the public, the MMS published in the Federal Register the Notice of Availability of the proposed Notice of Sale for OCS Sale 196 in the Western GOM. The title of that Notice correctly identified the proposed sale as an oil and gas lease sale in the Western GOM. However, in the summary of the action, the sale was incorrectly identified as a Central GOM sale. We are issuing this Notice to correct that error.Start Printed Page 20933
