NEVADA OIL AND GAS LEASE SALES

NEVADA OIL AND GAS LEASE SALES

BLM Nevada holds oil and gas lease sales four times per year, as required by the Mineral Leasing Act, when eligible lands are available for leasing. We offer parcels for lease on a rotating schedule among District Offices to allow each office sufficient time to conduct environmental analysis. However, the BLM has the discretion to offer or defer any parcel during any sale.

Beginning in March 2017, BLM Nevada’s lease sales will be held online through EnergyNet (https://www.energynet.com/govt_listing.pl). For more information on the transition to online lease sales, please see the BLM news release: BLM Takes Important Step Toward Online Oil & Gas Lease Sales

Half of the royalties from leasing and mineral development goes to the State of Nevada.
