The federal Bureau of Land Management will hold at least two oil and gas lease sales in Montana and North Dakota in September, the first sales since before the Biden administration paused leasing in 2021.

The Bureau of Land Management has scheduled a September lease sale for 25,759 acres, mostly in the north-central region of Montana. It’s been four years since BLM conducted more than one sale a year in the Montana-Dakota region.

Lease sales nationwide were suspended by President Joe Biden in early 2021.
