Land Management Bureau Announces Oil and Gas Leases

Agency opens public comment period on Q1 proposals based on environmental assessments.

The Bureau of Land Management has opened the public comment period on the 2022 Quarter 1 proposals regarding oil and gas lease sales in several states. The agency released the 2020 BLM Specialist Report on Annual Greenhouse Gas Emission and Climate Trends which has guided in its Environmental Assessments regarding fossil fuel development on lands under its jurisdiction.

“The BLM is committed to responsible development on public lands, including ensuring that our environmental reviews consider the climate impacts of energy development on lands and communities. We will continue to exercise the authority and discretion provided under law to conduct leasing in a manner that fulfills the Interior Department’s legal responsibilities,” said BLM Director Tracy Stone-Manning.

The public comment period is 30 days and the states, including Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma, each have an online lease sale page where comments may be submitted.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director Stone-Manning to seek God’s guidance as environmental assessments for energy are made.
  • For officials in the Bureau of Land Management to have wisdom as they implement the president’s energy agenda.
  • For contractors and producers as they bid on the oil and gas leases.
