March 2018 Oil and Gas Lease Sale
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 Mineral Leasing Act, 30 U.S.C.226(b)(1), as amended by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (Pub. L. 113-291. 128 Stat.3762) (Dec.19, 2014), and the BLM regulations at 43 CFR 3120, the Bureau of Land Management will be offering parcels for lease at a Competitive Internet-Based Oil and Gas Lease sale.

The sale will be on March 22, 2018. Additional information and shapefiles are available at energynet, https://www.energynet.com/govt_listing.pl.
