SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The IAP/ EIS analyzes management of all BLM managed lands in the NPR–A in a manner consistent with existing statutory direction and Secretarial Order 3352. Secretarial Order 3352 directed the development of a schedule to ‘‘effectuate the lawful review and development of an IAP for the NPR–A that strikes an appropriate balance of promoting development while protecting surface resources.’’ The NPRPA, as amended, and its implementing regulations require oil and gas leasing in the NPR–A and the protection of surface values consistent with exploration, development and transportation of oil and gas. The IAP/ EIS will serve to inform BLM’s management of the NPR–A for all permissible uses. Specifically, the IAP/EIS considers and analyzes the environmental impact of various management alternatives, including the areas to offer for oil and gas leasing, and the impacts that could result based on consideration of a hypothetical development scenario. The alternatives analyze various terms and conditions (i.e., lease stipulations and required operating procedures) to require of permittees in the NPR–A, to properly balance oil and gas development and other activities with protection of surface resources and other uses, including subsistence use. The lands comprising the NPR–A are approximately 23 million acres. Public comments on the draft EIS alternatives drove significant changes to required operating procedures and lease stipulations that were used to develop a new and Preferred Alternative (Alternative E). The Preferred Alternative would make the most land open to leasing (approximately 18.6 million acres, or 82 percent of NPR–A’s subsurface estate). The BLM has worked with interested parties to identify the management decisions best suited to local, regional, and national needs and concerns, as well as to develop a range of alternatives that examines how best to balance PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 development with protecting surface resources and other uses. Future on-theground actions requiring BLM approval, including potential exploration and development proposals, would require further NEPA analysis based on the sitespecific proposal. Potential applicants would be subject to the terms of the new IAP/EIS Record of Decision; however, the BLM Authorized Officer may require additional site-specific terms and conditions before authorizing any oil and gas activity based on the project level NEPA analysis.
