Oil and Gas Lease Sale Nominated Parcels

BLM develops an Environmental Assessment (EA) for each lease sale which tiers to the Resource Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement already in place for each Field Office.  This allows the public an additional opportunity to comment on any parcel proposed for the lease sale.  The public comments are then analyzed and incorporated into the EA.
