Dear Reader: 

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Miles City Field Office prepared an environmental assessment (EA) to analyze the potential effects from offering 156 nominated lease parcels for competitive oil and gas leasing in a sale tentatively scheduled to occur on June 13, 2017.  The EA was available for a 30-day public comment period.     

Based on our analysis and review of comments received, the EA has been updated (refer to Chapter 5 of the EA for a summary of public comments).   A competitive oil and gas lease sale is tentatively scheduled to be held on June 13, 2017.   It will be my recommendation to offer 156 of the in whole, 69,304 federal mineral acres, along with stipulations identified in the BLM preferred alternative in the updated EA, see Appendix A.  

After the June oil and gas lease sale, but prior to issuance of any leases, the Decision Record and FONSI will be finalized and posted for public review on our BLM e-Planning website.  Please refer to the BLM e-Planning website at http://tinyurl.com/q3skph4.  Current and updated information about our EA, Lease Sale Notice, and corresponding information pertaining to this sale can be found at the link referenced above.  

If you have any questions or would like more information about lease sale notices or the issuance of the EA, Decision Record and FONSI, please contact me at 406-233-2837.  


Sincerely,

 /s/ Todd D. Yeager
