Government shutdown won’t delay NPR-A lease sale, BLM says

The annual oil and gas lease sale in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska will go ahead as scheduled on Nov. 6, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Land Management told Petroleum News.

The BLM announced the sale on Sept. 30, just before the 16-day partial government shutdown that put many federal employees on furlough.

The shutdown is now over and the NPR-A lease sale will proceed normally, the agency’s KJ Mushovic said.

The BLM is offering 408 tracts covering about 4.5 million acres.

Sealed bids must be received by 4 p.m. Nov. 4.

Bids will be opened at 1 p.m. Nov. 6 in the Denali Room on the fourth floor of the Federal Building, 222 W. 7th Ave., Anchorage.
