The U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) said it will offer about 1.09 million acres off Alaska’s southcentral coast in a lease sale scheduled for June 21.
Cook Inlet Oil & Gas Lease Sale 244 will offer 224 blocks toward the northern part of the federal Cook Inlet Planning Area for leasing, BOEM said May 18. The blocks stretch roughly from Kalgin Island in the north to Augustine Island in the south.
The lease sale will be webcast via a link on www.boem.gov/ak244. The bid reading will begin at 10 a.m., according to the release.
More information, including a map of the lease sale area and a timeline of the leasing process, is available on BOEM’s website.
