Project Description:
The Proposed Action would be to offer one (1) lease parcel of Federal minerals for oil and gas leasing, in McKenzie County, covering 120 Federal mineral acres in conformance with the existing land use planning decisions. The terms and conditions of the standard federal lease and federal regulations would apply to the parcel offered for sale. As required by law, the BLM Montana/Dakotas conducts four Competitive Oil and Gas Lease Sales per year. The sales are rotated among the Districts and Field Offices based on Expressions of Interest and workload capacity. More information on Oil and Gas Lease Sales can be found at the following address: https://www.blm.gov/programs/energy-and-minerals/oil-and-gas/leasing/regional-lease-sales/montana-dakotas The BLM has decided to defer the one nominated lease parcel for the North Dakota March 2018 Lease Sale, and to withdraw from analysis the associated EA (Environmental Assessment). Due to time needed to thoroughly consider the comments on the EA (before the required posting dates for the lease sale process), and time needed for any potential additional analysis required to respond to comments, this parcel is being deferred.
