       The Honorable Dale Bumpers
       Chairman, Subcommittee on Public Lands,
         National Parks and Forests
       Committee on Energy and Natural Resources
       United States Senate
       The Honorable Nick J. Rahall, II
       Chairman, Subcommittee on Mining and
         Natural Resources
       Committee on Interior    and Insular Affairs
       House of Representatives

       In response to your March 2, 1988, letter            and subsequent
       discussions     with your offices,     this fact sheet presents
       information     on the extent of oil and gas leasing and
       development on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Forest
       Service lands.       Specifically,   this fact sheet presents
       summary statistics       on oil and gas activity      for 141 BIN
       resource areas and 156 national          forests.    Additionally,  it
       provides detailed      information   on the extent of oil and gas
       leasing and drilling        for each BLM resource area and BLM
       lands in Alaska and 31 eastern states,            as well as each
       national    forest.
       In summary, we found that although some portion         of most BLM
       and Forest Service lands have been leased, less than half of
       the leases have been drilled.         For example, out of 141 BLM
       resource areas, 126 resource areas have leased all or a
       portion    of their lands.     Of these resource areas,    69 have
       had producing or exploratory        wells drilled.   Of the 156
       national    forests,  113 have leased all or a portion      of their
       lands.     Of these forests,    46 have had producing or
       exploratory     wells drilled.
       Section 1 of this fact sheet provides a summary of the oil
       and gas activity  in the BLM resource areas and national
       forests.  Section 2 provides detailed  information   on the
       number of oil and gas leases issued and wells drilled     in
    B-238779


    each of the 141 BLM resource areas, as well as BLM lands in
    Alaska and in 31 eastern states.   Section 3 provides the
    same information for the 156 national   forests.
    To prepare this fact sheet, we developed a standardized             data
    collection    instrument    with input from both BLM and Forest
    Service officials.       Because little    of the information    that
    we requested was routinely        compiled by these agencies, we
    developed this information        with the assistance    of the BL&¶
    state offices     and Forest    Service headquarters    and regional
    offices.     Although we reviewed the data after they were
    compiled by the agencies and identified          and resolved
    inconsistencies,      we did not verify    the data against the
    source within the agencies.          For BLM, each state office
    provided the requested data primarily         on the basis of their
    land use plans and automated data bases such as the
    Automated Land and Mineral Record System, the Quarterly
    Engineering     Reports, and the Automated Inspection        Records
    System. For the Forest Service, the data were derived from
,   its land use plans or from field office          files.   Unless
    otherwise indicated,      the data are current through fiscal
    year 1988. We conducted our review from May 1988 to October
    1989.
    This.fact   sheet complements our planned report which will
    deal with the broader issue of the need for better    oil and
    gas information   to support land use decisions.   We expect to
    issue that report within the next few months.


    As the Chairmen's offices      requested,      we did not obtain
    official    agency comments on a draft of this fact sheet.
    However, BLM and the Forest Service were integrally                involved
    in the development of this information,             and as such, are
    familiar    with the contents of this fact sheet.            As arranged
    with your offices,      unless you publicly       announce its contents
    earlier,    we plan no further    distribution       of this fact sheet
    until    30 days from the date of this letter.           At that time,
    we will provide copies to the Secretaries             of Agriculture
    and Interior     and other interested      parties.

        Table 1.1 shows the level of oil and gas activity              on the 297
resource areas and national       forests.      Of the 141 BLM resource
areas, 69 have had producing or exploratory             wells drilled.       The
other 72 resource areas have had no oil and gas development
activity.     Of the 156 national     forests,      46 have had exploratory      or
producing wells drilled.      The remaining 110 forests have not
experienced oil and gas development.

aAll acreage figures except for the "acres leased" oolunn are rounded to the nearest thousand.
The subsurface mineral estate acreage is generally greater than the surface acreage because the
federal government owns the mineral rights to scme privately owned lands.
b"Acreage spen/closed to leasing" is estimated. "Nondiscretionary closures" are areas closed
to leasing by law, secretarial decision, or executive order. "Discretionary closures" result
from decisions made as part of the agency's land use planning process.
blmns     fsr wells "Przducirq"  or "Capable of Production" include zil and gas eils  only.
Wells capable of production are currently unjer suspension. The cohnn for "Other" wells
incLude injection , water supply, and oil and gas storage agreement ~11s.    Well data fzr
"Exploratory," "Developmental," and "Pending and Approved Abandonments" are for fiscal years
1986-88.

aAl acreage figures except for the "acres leased" column are rounded to the nearest thousand.
The subsurface mineral estate acreage is generally greater than the surface acreage because the
federal governnent awns the mineral rights to sane privately owned lands.
b"Acreage cpen/closed to leasing" is estimated. "Nondiscretionary closures" are areas closed
to leasing by law, secretarial decision, or executive order. "Discretionary closures" result
fran decisions made as part of the agency's land use planning process. Sane eastern states
have XI planning documents, and prodetermination has been made regarding areas open or clxed
to leasing. This is indicated in these colunns with a zero.
Ccolunns for wells "Producing" or "Capable of Production" include oil and gas wells only.
Wells capable of production are currently under suspension. The column for "Other" wells
include injection, water supply, and oil and gas storage agreement wells. Well data for
"Exploratory," "Developmental,* and "Pending and Approved Abandom-'ents" are for fiscal years
1986-88.
