United States : BLM Seeks Review On Public Lands Nominated For Geothermal Exploration And Development.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Elko District is making available for public review an Environmental Assessment (EA) for parcels of public land nominated for lease in the September 2019 Competitive Geothermal Lease Sale. These parcels have the potential for future geothermal exploration and development. The 15-day public review period begins June 24 and concludes July 8, 2019. The BLM will hold the lease sale online at www.energynet.com.

The BLM is considering offering up to 24 parcels, comprising about 51,650 acres of land in northeastern Nevada within the area administered by the Elko District, in a competitive Geothermal Lease Sale to be held in September 2019.

In keeping with the Administrations goal of strengthening Americas energy security, the BLM supports an all-of-the-above energy plan that includes oil and gas, coal, hydroelectric, and renewable sources such as wind, geothermal, and solar all of which can be developed on public lands.

An additional environmental review will take place during processing of the Geothermal Drilling Permit (GDP), when site-specific conditions of approval will be placed on the permit in addition to the stipulations attached to the lease. Geothermal leases are for an initial 10-year period with the opportunity to extend if diligent exploration and development occur.
