BLM pilot program extension gets API backing

The U.S. API welcomed House passage of legislation to extend a successful pilot program at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that allows field offices to more efficiently process applications for permits to develop oil and natural gas on federal lands.

“A more efficient permitting process is crucial to America’s all-of-the-above energy strategy,” said API Director of Upstream and Industry Operations Erik Milito. “This legislation will help to address well-documented regulatory delays that have held up energy production on federal lands and slowed the growth of jobs.

Passed by the Senate in September, the BLM Permit Processing Improvement Act (S. 2440) was added to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and approved by the House. The NDAA will now go to the Senate, which is expected to send it to the president’s desk.
