Federal Crop Insurance Corporation February 2016 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Waste Prevention, Production Subject to Royalties, and Resource Conservation
Document Number: 2016-01865
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-02-08
Agency: Farm Service Agency, Federal Crop Insurance Corporation
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing new regulations to reduce waste of natural gas from venting, flaring, and leaks during oil and natural gas production activities on onshore Federal and Indian leases. The regulations would also clarify when produced gas lost through venting, flaring, or leaks is subject to royalties, and when oil and gas production used on site would be royalty-free. These proposed regulations would be codified at new 43 CFR subparts 3178 and 3179. They would replace the existing provisions related to venting, flaring, and royalty-free use of gas contained in the 1979 Notice to Lessees and Operators of Onshore Federal and Indian Oil and Gas Leases, Royalty or Compensation for Oil and Gas Lost (NTL- 4A), which are over 3 decades old.
