Title: Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act; Operating in High-Pressure and/or High-Temperature (HPHT) Environments 

This proposed rule would formally codify BSEE's existing process for reviewing and approving projects in high pressure and/or high temperature (HPHT) environments.  Currently, BSEE reviews and approves HPHT projects under its existing regulations. Based on these regulations, BSEE issued multiple guidance documents clarifying the specific HPHT information prospective operators should submit to BSEE to support the bureau’s programmatic reviews and approvals of such projects.
