BLM Postpones California Oil and Gas Lease Sale


Due to budget constraints resulting from the sequester and an emphasis on the higher priorities for conducting Inspection and Enforcement on existing leases and processing new Applications for Permit to Drill, the California State Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has postponed all oil and gas lease sales in California for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2013 (September 30, 2013).

The BLM had tentatively scheduled a competitive oil and gas lease sale on Wednesday, May 22, to offer four parcels that encompass approximately 1,278 acres of public lands in Fresno and Kern counties.

For questions regarding the postponement of the lease sales, contact Dave Christy at (916) 941-3146.
