BLM’s Policy
It is the policy of the BLM as mandated by various laws, including the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920, as amended (30 United States Code [USC] 181 et seq.), the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), and the Energy Policy Act of 2005 to make mineral resources available for development to meet national, regional, and local needs. The oil and gas leasing program managed by the BLM encourages the sustainable development of domestic oil and gas reserves which reduces the dependence of the United States on foreign sources of energy as part of its multiple-use and sustainable yield mandate. Therefore, in accordance with the BLM regulations at 43 CFR 3120, the Bureau of Land Management will be offering parcels for lease at a Competitive Oil and Gas Lease Sale.
 
 
 
 
BLM will have an Oil and Gas Lease Sale on December 13th 2018 and the parcels being offered may include Federal fluid mineral estates located in the Eastern States, Southeastern and Northeastern Districts. The sale would be conducted utilizing the EnergyNet internet-based auction system. Additional information about the sale would be available in the future on EnergyNet.
