February 4, 2016
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wyoming State Office has released its proposed list of parcels for the May 3, 2016 oil and gas lease sale. The BLM also announced that the parcels originally scheduled to be offered at the postponed February 2016 sale will be offered during the May sale.
The February sale was postponed due to a severe winter storm in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The February parcels, which are scheduled to be offered at the May sale, include 80 parcels totaling 77,385 acres.
The posted list for May identifies 32 parcels containing approximately 29,736 acres and include parcels located in Carbon, Sweetwater, Sublette, Lincoln, and Uinta counties in Wyoming.
Copies of the May 2016 competitive oil and gas lease sale notice will be available at the sale and may be purchased in advance for $5 from the State Office at 5353 Yellowstone Road in Cheyenne, or by writing: BLM, Attn: Copy Work, P.O. Box 1828, Cheyenne, Wyo. 82003. Copies are also available for purchase from each BLM field office in Wyoming.
