The Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management are proposing to update three of its onshore orders that address facets of oil and gas development on Federal and Tribal lands -- site security, oil measurement, and gas measurement. At this live forum and technical discussion, the BLM sought input on its current Onshore regulations (Order 3, site security; Order 4, oil measurement; and Order 5, gas measurement) for which revisions are proposed. The three Orders are being updated in response to various audits in recent years by the Government Accountability Office, DOI Subcommittee on Royalty Management, and the Office of the Inspector General. In 2010 the GAO identified the Department of the Interior oil and gas program as high risk in assuring production accounting.
