Listening sessions will be held by the Bureau of Land Management to solicit suggestions from the public on how best to implement the split estate provisions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Section 1835 of the Energy Policy Act directs the Secretary of the Interior to review current policies and practices for managing oil and gas resources in split estate situations, that is, how the BLM provides for oil and gas development and environmental protection where the surface estate is privately owned and the mineral estate is owned and administered by the Federal Government. The Act directs that this review be conducted in consultation with affected private surface owners, oil and gas industry, and other interested parties. Dates and Locations: Listening Sessions will be scheduled during late March 2006 in Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Washington, DC. The BLM will announce exact times and locations through the local media, e-mail, and on the Split Estate Web site at: https:// www.blm.gov/bmp at least 15 days prior to the listening sessions.
