Bishop Letter to U.S. Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze


WASHINGTON, D.C., November 17, 2015 - TO: The Honorable Neil Kornze

FROM: Rob Bishop, Chairman

Dear Director Kornze: 

I am writing to express concerns regarding the Bureau of Land Management's ("BLM") proposed updates to Onshore Orders 3, 4, and 5. Collectively, these orders address the measurement, collection and securing of information relating to produced oil and natural gas on federal lands. I understand the BLM is revisiting these orders under a concern that its verification technique for produced natural resources are outdated and lacking, and therefore may have resulted in lost royalties.
