BLM Hosts Live Broadcast on Preparation
of Documents Relating to Oil and Gas Development

WHAT: The Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service are hosting an interactive satellite broadcast for those parties involved in preparing documents related to oil and gas development on Federal public lands.

WHEN: 9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., Mountain Time, Thursday, September 13, 2007

WHERE: BLM State and Field Offices

BACKGROUND: The Bureau of Land Management, an agency of the Interior Department, and the Forest Service, an agency of the Agriculture Department, are hosting a live satellite broadcast to inform any and all interested parties about recent revisions to a set of regulations collectively known as Onshore Oil and Gas Order No. 1. Those responsible for preparing related documentation, such as Applications for Permits to Drill (APDs), will find the broadcast most useful; however, all members of the public are invited to attend. Information on new APD processing timelines, off-lease access, and geospatial databases – as well as information on how BLM and Forest Service rights-of-way work – will also be covered during the broadcast, which will include an interactive question-and-answer session.
