On November 18, 2016, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) published in the Federal Register a final rule entitled, ``Waste Prevention, Production Subject to Royalties, and Resource Conservation'' (2016 final rule). The BLM is now proposing to temporarily suspend or delay certain requirements contained in the 2016 final rule until January 17, 2019. The BLM is currently reviewing the 2016 final rule and wants to avoid imposing temporary or permanent compliance costs on operators for requirements that may be rescinded or significantly revised in the near future.
