CHEYENNE (AP) — The Bureau of Land Management is proposing to offer 105 oil and gas lease parcels totaling about 118,200 acres in Wyoming at a quarterly lease sale next March.

In coordination with the state, the BLM is deferring four whole parcels and a portion of one other because they intersect state-designated big game migration corridors.

In addition, the agency says the proposed leases meet recent court-ordered sage grouse protections.

The BLM is accepting public comment period on the proposed lease sale until Dec. 13.

In 2018, the BLM raised nearly $117 million through oil and gas lease sales in Wyoming. Nearly half the revenue was shared with the state.
