BLM requires them to provide a bond before beginning drilling operations. BLM refers to oil and gas wells and leased land that will require reclamation as potential liabilities because BLM may have to pay for reclamation if the operators fail to do so. This report determined: (1) BLM's policies for managing potential federal oil and gas well liability; (2) the extent to which BLM has implemented these policies; and (3) the challenges, if any, BLM faces in managing potential oil and gas well liability. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
