OIl and gas statistics for 2019

California Oil and Gas Lease Sales 

BLM California conducts oil and gas lease sales in accordance with federal law. Lease parcels are made up of lands that have been determined to be available for leasing through BLM’s land use planning process, and are either nominated or requested by the public. Once parcels are leased, operators are required to submit exploration or development proposals to BLM who conducts an environmental analysis and applies measures to mitigate impacts before work begins.

Half of the royalties from mineral development and leasing goes back to the States.
