Oil and Gas Lease Sale Nominated Parcels

New Mexico 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 District/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.

Nominated parcels and their recommended stipulations will be posted for a two week public public scoping period.

In addition, the EAs and unsigned Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) will be available for a thirty day public review and comment period.
