When Do I Need to Obtain a Lease Bond to Operate a Federal Oil and Gas Lease?


Before you drill make sure you are covered by a bond.

One part of the Federal Onshore Oil and Gas Leasing Reform Act of 1987 states that when a company is functioning on federal land, it is necessary to post a sufficient bond or other financial assurance before the beginning of any surface disturbing activities related to drilling to ensure reclamation of lands and waters negatively impaired by oil and gas operations. This white paper focuses on lease bonds.
