390.  NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE SYSTEM; OIL AND GAS 
REGULATIONS

Legal Authority: 16 USC 668dd-ee; 42 USC 7401 et seq; 16 USC 1131 to 
1136; 40 CFR 51.300 to 51.309

Abstract: We propose regulations that ensure that all operators 
conducting oil or gas operations within a National Wildlife Refuge 
System unit do so in a manner as to prevent or minimize damage to 
National Wildlife Refuge System resources, visitor values, and 
management objectives. FWS does not intend these regulations to result 
in a taking of a property Interest, but rather to impose reasonable 
controls on operations that affect federally owned or controlled lands 
and/or waters.

decommissioning idle facilities.
