Wyoming BLM Issues Notice for Oil & Gas Lease Sale
The Wyoming Bureau of Land Management issued an environmental assessment and competitive sale notice for the 2nd Quarter oil and gas lease sale today, March 31st.
They wrote in a written statement that the notice incorporates recommendations from the Department of the Interior’s Report on the Federal Oil and Gas Leasing Program, as well as other reports issued by the Governmental Accountability Office and Congressional Budget Office.
The BLM-Wyoming State Office proposes to move forward by offering 116 parcels totaling 127,034.69 acres in all Wyoming Field Offices.
The parcels will be offered at the online oil and gas lease sale scheduled for June 21-22, 2023; sale can be accessed at www.energynet.com; the parcels may also be viewed on the EnergyNet website approximately 10 days after today’s posting of the Notice of Competitive Lease Sale on the BLM-Wyoming oil and gas web page.
The BLM is applying a royalty rate of 16.67% for the leases sold in the current competitive lease sales, in keeping with rates charged by States and private landowners.
Today’s posting of the sale notice initiates a 30-day public protest period that ends May 1, 2023, at 4:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time.
