Project Description:
Under this alternative, BLM would lease federal mineral estate in all nominated parcels available for leasing in the resource area in accordance with the Northeast (September 1986, amended December 1991) and Royal Gorge (May 1996) RMPs. The current lease sale includes parcels in Kiowa, Lincoln and Weld counties. Those lands proposed for lease under this alternative total 4,804.2 acres of federal mineral estate and include a combination of federal and private surface. The lands have been grouped into appropriate lease parcels for competitive sale as oil and gas leases in accordance with the 43 CFR 3100 regulations. The leases would include the standard lease terms and conditions for development of the surface of oil and gas leases provided in 43 CFR 3100. Stipulations to protect other surface and subsurface resources would apply, as prescribed by the RMP.
