Restrictive Public Lands Proposal
WASHINGTON, July 5, 2023 — The American Petroleum Institute (API) today joined with the American Exploration and Production Council (AXPC), Montana Petroleum Association (MPA), New Mexico Oil and Gas Association (NMOGA) and Utah Petroleum Association (UPA) urging the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to reconsider its proposed Conservation and Landscape Health Rule. In comments submitted to BLM, the associations highlighted the U.S. oil and natural gas industry’s longstanding commitment to environmental stewardship but raised concerns with the proposed rule’s potential harm to American energy security.
