Feds approve MLP for Montezuma, La Plata counties

Acreage dramatically reduced after public comment
The approved area for a new master leasing plan in Montezuma and La Plata counties will be about 71,000 acres, about one-fifth the size of the original proposal of 326,000 acres.
The original area of interest for the master leasing plan included vast amounts of private land with private minerals, areas already leased, and BLM wilderness study areas that were already withdrawn from oil and gas development. The final MLP area will be 71,000 acres.
Riders cruise up a hill at Phil’s World during one of High Desert Devo’s group rides this year.
