Sale of oil and gas leases set for parcels in Fall River County

The Associated Press

Oil and gas leases are set to go up for sale on three parcels of private land in southwestern South Dakota.

EDGEMONT, S.D. (AP) — Oil and gas leases are set to go up for sale on three parcels of private land in southwestern South Dakota.

Russ Pigors, a physical scientist with the Belle Fourche Bureau of Land Management office, says a lease sale will be held July 12 for the parcels west of Edgemont in Fall River County. The Bureau of Land Management is asking for public comment on what sort of environmental impact there might be in allowing oil and gas exploration on the parcels.

The Rapid City Journal reports the roughly 720 acres of private land are within the boundaries of the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands. Pigors says the public comment process is standard when the Bureau of Land Management does oil and gas leases.

The public comment period ends March 8.
