BLM Postpones November 2015 Lease Sale

Salt Lake City— The BLM-Utah competitive oil and gas lease sale scheduled for Nov. 17, 2015, has been postponed to allow the time needed to better accommodate the high level of public interest in attending the sale.  BLM-Utah expects to reschedule the sale in the near future.  Once the details have been determined, they will be released through the media and posted on the BLM-Utah state home page, as well as the BLM-Utah oil and gas leasing webpage.  BLM-Utah apologizes for the short notice of postponement.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM’s mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In fiscal year 2014, the BLM generated $5.2 billion in receipts from public lands.
