Dec 14, 2015 IPAA, API, and Western Energy Alliance Joint Comments to the Department of the Interior on its Proposed Replacement of Onshore Order No. 4, Measurement of Oil
Dear Mr. Kornze: On September 30, 2015, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) issued a proposed rule entitled “Onshore Oil and Gas Operations; Federal and Indian Oil and Gas Leases; Measurement of Oil” (80 Fed. Reg. 58,952). This Proposed Rule would replace Onshore Oil and Gas Order No. 4, Measurement of Oil (Onshore Order No. 4), which prescribes standards for the measurement of oil produced from federal and Indian onshore oil and gas leases, with new, more expansive regulations that would be codified in Title 43 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
