Onshore Oil and Gas Operations; Federal and Indian Oil and Gas Leases; Site Security
Document Number: 2015-16737
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-07-13
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management
This proposed rule would replace Onshore Oil and Gas Order No. 3, Site Security (Order 3), with new regulations that would be codified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Order 3 establishes minimum standards for oil and gas facility site security. It includes provisions intended to ensure that oil and gas produced from Federal and Indian (except Osage Tribe) oil and gas leases are properly and securely handled, so as to ensure accurate measurement, production accountability, and royalty payments, and to prevent theft and loss. Order 3 was issued in 1989. The changes proposed as part of this proposed rule would allow the BLM to strengthen its policies governing production verification and accountability by updating Order 3's requirements to address changes in technology and industry practices that have occurred in the 25 years since Order 3 was issued, and to respond to recommendations made by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) with respect to the BLM's production verification efforts. The proposed rule addresses Facility Measurement Points (FMPs), site facility diagrams, the use of seals, bypasses around meters, documentation, recordkeeping, commingling, off- lease measurement, and the reporting of incidents of unauthorized removal or mishandling of oil and condensate. The proposed rule also identifies certain acts of noncompliance that would result in an immediate assessment. Finally, it sets forth a process for the BLM to consider variances from the requirements of this proposed regulation. The BLM believes these proposed changes will enhance its overall production verification and accountability efforts. As part of those efforts, the BLM also anticipates that it will separately propose new regulations to update and replace Onshore Oil and Gas Orders Nos. 4 (Order 4) and 5 (Order 5) related to measurement of oil and gas, respectively.
