Aug 21, 2018 Comments Regarding the Council on Environmental Quality’s Request to Update Implementing Regulations of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

Since its enactment, requirements involving NEPA have grown considerably and place a heavy burden on independent oil and gas producers operating on federal lands. As more than forty years of experience with implementing NEPA have demonstrated, overly broad NEPA reviews add unreasonable costs and delays to projects. While the Act has remained unchanged, court decisions, Executive Orders and regulations have defined and significantly expanded the scope of NEPA.
