The Mineral Leasing Act of 1920 (MLA), 30 U.S.C. 191 et seq., gives the Secretary of the Interior responsibility for oil and gas leasing on approximately 570 million acres of public lands and national forests, and private lands where the mineral rights are reserved by the Federal government. The Act of May 21, 1930 (30 U.S.C. 301–306), authorizes the leasing of oil and gas deposits under railroads and other rights-of-way. The Act of August 7, 1947 (Mineral Leasing Act of Acquired Lands), authorizes the Secretary to lease lands acquired by the United States (30 U.S.C. 341–359). The regulations under 43 CFR part 3000 et al. authorize BLM to manage the oil and gas leasing and exploration activities. Without the information, BLM would not be able to analyze and approve oil and gas leasing and exploration activities. BLM collects nonform information on oil and gas leasing and exploration activities when the lessee, record title holder, operating rights owner, or operator files any of the following information for BLM to adjudicate: Information collection requirements 3100.3–1 ..................................... 3100.3–3 ..................................... 3101.2–4(a) ................................ 3101.2–6 ..................................... 31.1.3–1 ...................................... 3103.4–1 ..................................... 3105.2 ......................................... 3105.3 ......................................... 3105.4 ......................................... 3105.5 ......................................... 3106.8–1 ..................................... 3106.8–2 ..................................... 3106.8–3 ..................................... 3107.8 ......................................... 3108.1 ......................................... 3108.2 ......................................... 3109.1 ......................................... 3120.1–1(e) ................................ 3120.1–3 ..................................... 3152.1 ......................................... 3152.6 ......................................... 3152.7 .........................................
