Wyoming: Notice of Proposed Reinstatement of Terminated Oil and Gas Lease
Under the provisions of 30 U.S.C. 188(d) and (e), and 43 CFR 3108.23(a) and (b)(1), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) received a petition for reinstatement from Delta Petroleum Corporation and Kerr McGee Oil & Gas Onshore LP for competitive oil and gas lease WYW152696 for land in Fremont County, Wyoming. The petition was filed on time and was accompanied by all the rentals due since the date the lease terminated under the law.
The lessees have agreed to the amended lease
terms for rentals and royalties at rates of $10.00 per acre, or
fraction thereof, per year, and 16\2/3\ percent, respectively. The
lessees have paid the required $500 administrative fee and $163 to
reimburse the Department for the cost of this Federal Register notice.
The lessees have met all the requirements for reinstatement of the
lease as set out in Sections 31(d) and (e) of the Mineral Lands Leasing
Act of 1920 (30 U.S.C. 188), and the Bureau of Land Management is
proposing to reinstate lease WYW152696 effective April 1, 2008, under
the original terms and conditions of the lease and the increased rental
and royalty rates cited above. BLM has not issued a valid lease affecting the lands.
