Oil and gas meeting in Bakersfield
Patty Morrison, Department of the Interior Principal Deputy Assistant for Land and Minerals Management, visited Bakersfield's "oil patch" to discuss ways to encourage responsible oil and gas development on public lands and increase production in existing fields. Ms. Morrison also heard from industry representatives that they want NPR2 (National Petroleum Reserve No. 2) transferred from the Department of Energy to BLM as soon as possible through legislation.
Participants also attended a field tour of NPR2.
