ACTION:

Notice; correction.

SUMMARY:

On Monday, October 31, 2016, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) published the Atlantic Wind Lease Sale 6 (ATLW-6) for Commercial Leasing for Wind Power on the Outer Continental Shelf Offshore New York—Final Sale Notice (FSN) in the Federal Register (81 FR 75429). The FSN announced that BOEM will offer for lease an identified area offshore New York, and provided details regarding the terms of Lease OCS-A 0512 and the forthcoming auction.

Technical Correction

The FSN at 81 FR 75433 incorrectly stated: “Annual rent for a project easement is the greater of $5 per acre per year or $450 per year.” In order to be consistent with the description of the rental rate for the project easement associated with Lease OCS-A 0512, as discussed in Addendum “D” to the lease, the above sentence is replaced by the following language from Addendum D:

Correction

In the Federal Register of October 31, 2016, in FR Doc. 16-26240, on page 75433, in the third column, correct the last sentence before the heading “Operating Fee” to read: “Annual rent for a project easement 200 feet wide, centered on the transmission cable, is $70.00 per statute mile. For any additional acreage required, the lessee must also pay the greater of $5.00 per acre per year or $450.00 per year.”
