Lease Terms and Conditions

All bidding and lease sale on BLM parcels listed on this website shall be subject to the statutes, administrative rules and regulations of the BLM per the authority of the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920 as amended and the Mineral Leasing Act for Acquired Lands of 1947, as amended.

A lease issued as a result of this sale will have a primary term of 10 years. It will continue beyond its primary term as long as oil or gas in paying quantities is produced on or for the benefit of the lease. Advance rental at $1.50 per acre for the first 5 years ($2 per acre after that) is due on or before the anniversary date each year until production begins. Once a lease is producing, you must pay a royalty of 12.5 percent of the value or the amount of production removed or sold from the lease. You will find other lease terms on our standard lease form (Form 3100-11, October 2008).

Lease Notation:

This lease is located within the Secretary of the Interior’s Designated Potash Area and is subject to Secretarial Order No. 3324, signed December 3, 2012. Drilling an oil and gas well within this lease may result in undue waste of potash deposits, constitute a hazard to or unduly interfere with mining operations being conducted for the extraction of potash deposits. Therefore, drilling of an oil and gas well from a surface location within this lease may not be allowed, and may only be permitted if drilling occurs from either the approved Jade Drilling Island located on fee surface along the northern section line of section 27 in T19S, R33E, or from the northern section line of sections 22 and 23 in T19S R33E on federal surface (see attached map). A drilling island is not required if the well is drilled from the northern section lines of sections 22 and 23 in T19S, R33E. Access to the lease could also be accomplished from outside of the Secretary’s Potash Area in sections 14 and 15 in T19S, R33E. Regardless of where surface access occurs, a Development Area Notification will be required.


Stipulations are part of the lease and supersede any inconsistent provisions of the lease form. Some parcels are subject to surface use stipulations. They are requirements or restrictions on how you conduct operations.
They become part of the lease and supersede any inconsistent provisions in the lease form. See Sale Notice for stipulation details.
