Gas leasing comment period open

Posted

The Bureau of Land Management will open a short public comment window Friday (Oct. 5) for a 2019 lease sale. The public scoping ends Oct. 19.

The BLM leases public land for oil and gas development and those parcels are occasionally auctioned. The proposed 2019 lease sale is set for March 6 and includes parcels in both New Mexico and Oklahoma.

"The parcels in New Mexico include 16 in Sandoval County, 14 in San Juan County, seven in McKinley County, one in Rio Arriba County, four in Lea County and four in Eddy County," according to the BLM. "Additional information, including the draft parcel list, spatial data, and exhibits, can be obtained online at blm.gov/programs/energy-and-minerals/oil-and-gas/leasing/regional-lease-sales/new-mexico. This website will link you to ePlanning where interested individuals and parties can provide written comments."

A notice and protest period for a Dec. 3 lease sale will be open from Oct. 22-31.
