BLM Oil and Gas Operator Seminar
BLM is planning its sixth biennial daylong seminar for all Federal Operators on November 5, 2009, at Aera Energy’s Bakersfield Office located at 10000 Ming Ave. The purpose of the seminar is to provide an update for federal operators on their responsibilities on federal leases and information on permitting, leasing, split estate issues, assignments/transfers, bonding, field operations, BLM’s inspection, idle well and royalty rate reduction programs and many other items of importance.
Cost of the seminar will be $45, which includes all handouts, snacks, and lunch. The seminar begins at 8:15 a.m. and will be finished by 3:30 p.m., after which BLM staff will remain to discuss and answer questions one-on-one in a more informal setting. To confirm your reservation, please send your check with a list of those who will attend each seminar by October 30, 2009.

This program will benefit everyone who operates on BLM land or is involved in any way in the permit process, including engineers, landmen, drilling personnel, production accountants, permit technicians, field technicians, contractors, and surface owners. BLM staff will be present to answer questions during breaks and afterwards. We strongly encourage all operators and contractors who work on BLM projects to attend.
