USBLM ignores USNPS request to hold off on O&G lease sale near Hovenweep NMon

The Bureau of Land Management disregarded a request by the National Park Service that it hold off leasing 17,000 acres of public land in Utah on Tuesday because of concerns that drilling there could harm Hovenweep National Monument’s views and air, groundwater and sound quality.


All of the 13 parcels were sold online as part of a broader sale, with the lease prices ranging from $3 to roughly $91 per acre.
