West-wide Energy Corridors

In accordance with Section 368(a) of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the BLM has designated 5,000 miles of energy corridors (“Section 368 corridors,” or “West-wide energy corridors”) to locate future oil, natural gas and hydrogen pipelines, and electricity transmission and distribution infrastructure.

As preferred locations for energy transport rights-of-way on BLM-managed public lands, these corridors are intended to facilitate long-distance movement of oil, gas or hydrogen via pipeline, and transmission and distribution of high-voltage electric power.
