Notice of Intent To Prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement
Document Number: 08-472
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-02-04
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), after receiving nominated oil and gas lease parcels and appropriate lease stipulations from the Forest Service (FS), sold and issued 12 leases, and sold 23 other leases that have not been issued. An appeal to the Interior Board of Land Appeals (IBLA) resulted in a stay being granted for the 12 issued leases. Upon request, the appeal was remanded back to the BLM for resolution. The IBLA decision held that BLM had relied on an inadequate/stale NEPA analysis in reaching its decision to sell and issue the lease parcels. In the case of oil and gas leasing decisions on National Forest system lands, and in conformance with a MOU between the BLM and FS which identifies the need for BLM to be a cooperating agency, the NEPA analysis that was relied on by BLM to inform leasing decisions was adopted from the appropriate and applicable Forest Service NEPA. This supplemental EIS will address the issues identified by IBLA as inadequately or inappropriately addressed in previous NEPA analyses informing leasing decisions, and other issues identified through scoping.
