Public Events on Oil and Gas
Forums on Venting & Flaring from Oil and Gas Operations on Public and Indian Trust Lands
The BLM has held four forums on venting and flaring from oil and gas development on public lands. Four separate forums were held concerning Indian trust lands.The BLM is considering various options for addressing venting and flaring of gas and the loss of gas through fugitive emissions from onshore Federal and Indian oil and gas operations. This includes preventing the waste of hydrocarbons, while promoting conservation of produced oil and gas, and to also ensure a fair return to the American taxpayer.
