December 2018 Utah Oil and Gas Lease Sale
In keeping with the Administration’s goal of strengthening America’s energy independence, the Bureau of Land Management is beginning on July 16, 2018, a 15-day scoping period for the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process to evaluate offering approximately 329,826 acres of federal minerals in Utah for oil and gas leasing. The Parcel Lists can be accessed by clicking "Documents" on the column to the right.  Maps are available on the map page and and GIS shape files under "Data".  The public scoping comment period ends at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 31, 2018.  To ensure consideration of your comment(s), please submit it before that date.
 
“The BLM welcomes and encourages public involvement early in the NEPA process, as it is an integral part in our evaluation of the proposed lease parcels,” said Kent Hoffman, Deputy State Director for Lands and Minerals. “The most effective comments will identify issues and concerns specific to the parcels being considered.”
 
The BLM recently issued new policy instructing state offices to move away from the rotating district lease sale schedule and to now return to offering parcels statewide for each quarterly sale. This will be BLM Utah’s first statewide lease sale under the new guidance.
