- Trump moves to open more public land to drilling in California
By Kurtis Alexander - Thursday Jul 6, 2017
The Trump administration forged ahead with its commitment to boosting domestic fossil fuel production Thursday, directing more public lands to be opened for oil and gas extraction — a move that could bring new drill rigs to California.At minimum, the administration’s action will intensify the push by energy companies to broaden drilling across California’s prime oil country, in the interior Central Coast region and the southern San Joaquin Valley, and promises a new round of drawn-out conservation battles.About 12 million barrels of oil and 9 billion cubic feet of natural gas were produced through some 500 leases on public lands in the state in 2016, according to the Bureau of Land Management.[...] the oil industry has long complained that too much acreage is off limits — 10 percent of the state’s production is on federal land — and that environmental regulations governing drilling are unnecessarily cumbersome.“This executive order is a positive first step, but production on federal lands is a complicated process with oversight roles by a number of state and federal regulatory agencies,” said Rock Zierman, chief executive officer of the California Independent Petroleum Association.The American Petroleum Institute said the administration’s action would benefit the industry nationally, allowing it to invest in projects that would create jobs and benefit consumers through lower energy prices.“We’re coming off a Fourth of July weekend when a number of Americans are out enjoying their public lands, and here’s Zinke and Trump threatening to turn them into oil and gas fields,” said Hollin Kretzmann, staff attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, a group that has opposed drilling in California.Speaking at a news conference in Washington, Zinke said the order was part of Trump’s broader “America first” energy policy, which has included several attempts to expand oil and gas development both onshore and off.Zinke criticized the Obama administration for putting off lease sales, saying the federal Mining Leasing Act requires quarterly auctions.A pair of lawsuits over the Bureau of Land Management’s lease sales are forcing the agency to redo the way in which it auctions drilling rights.
