BLM to hold second NPR-A lease sale in Anchorage

The US Bureau of Land Management will hold its second lease sale in the past year for National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska tracts on Nov. 7 in Anchorage, US Sec. of the Interior Ken Salazar reported.

The sale, which will include 400 tracts and cover 4.5 million acres, builds on the December 2011 NPR-A sale that made 283 tracts and 3 million acres available, Salazar said.

BLM released a draft determination of National Environmental Policy Act adequacy in support of the sale. Comments will be accepted until Oct. 24, the agency said.
