Introduction

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Elko District has issued a Decision for the 2015 Competitive Oil & Gas Lease Sale. Associated documents are available for viewing by following the 'Documents' link on the left-hand side of this page or by contacting the Elko District Office at (775) 753-0200.

The Elko District encompasses about 12.4 million acres, of which approximately 7.2 million acres are public lands managed by the BLM. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is considering offering up to 24 parcels, comprising about 25,802.47 acres of land in northeastern Nevada within the area administered by the Elko District Office, in a state-wide competitive Oil and Gas Lease Sale to be held in March, 2015. These offered parcels amount to approximately 0.38 percent of public lands in the Elko district. Over 7 million acres were nominated by industry for the March 2015 Oil and Gas Lease Sale. Of those 7 million acres, BLM adjudicated (processed) 1,323,225.584 acres. The BLM is offering approximately 0.39 percent of the publicly requested acres for March 2015 lease sale. The vast majority of the 1,323,225.584 adjudicated acres were removed from the March 2015 sale due to Greater Sage Grouse issues. Some of the adjudicated lands were removed because they were within leased areas, within a WSA, or lands with no federal mineral estate.
