Abstract: Congress passed legislation specifically addressing oil and gas leasing on Osage lands and requiring Secretarial approval of leases. See 34 Stat. 543, section 3, as amended.

The oil, gas, and land are assets that the United States holds in trust or restricted status for Indian beneficiaries. The information collections in 25 CFR 226 are necessary to ensure that the beneficial owners of the mineral rights are provided the royalties due them, ensure that the oil and gas trust assets are protected, and to ensure that the surface estate assets are protected.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In September 2008, Keystone filed with the United States Department of State an initial application for a Presidential Permit to construct, operate, maintain, and (eventually) decommission the Keystone XL Pipeline to transport crude oil across the U.S./Canada border near Morgan, Montana, to Steele City, Nebraska, and then from Cushing, Oklahoma, to locations along the Texas Gulf of Mexico. The original application for Presidential Permit was amended and resubmitted on May 4, 2012 to modify the Project description to: (1) Avoid the Sand Hills Region in Nebraska; and (2) remove the southern segment of the Project from Cushing, Oklahoma, to the Gulf Coast area. In addition to its application to the Department of State, Keystone also filed a right-of-way application in March 2008 under Section 28 of the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920, as amended, with the BLM. The right-of-way application was revised by Keystone in September 2012 and 2014 to reflect changes in the Project description. In November 2015, the Presidential Permit was denied. Due to the denial, Keystone requested to withdraw their right-of-way application with the BLM in February 2016. In January 2017, Keystone refiled their application for a Presidential Permit with the Department of State. In February 2018, Keystone filed a revised right-of-way application and updated Plan of Development (POD) with the BLM to reinitiate processing their rightof-way application. In January 2020, Keystone updated the POD and reflected the most recent data on the project and clarifies minor route adjustments. The BLM responded to Keystone’s right-of-way application on Federal lands administered by the BLM and USACE to construct, operate, maintain, and (eventually) decommission the Project in compliance with the Mineral Leasing Act, BLM right-of-way regulations (43 CFR 2880), and other applicable Federal laws, regulations, and policies. The only Federal lands involved in this Project are BLM and USACE administered lands in the State of Montana. The State Department has been the Lead Federal Agency for the purposes of NEPA, and BLM and the USACE have been Cooperating Agencies from the beginning of this project.
