Biden administration shrinks area eligible for drilling at Arctic reserve

Source: The Hill

The Biden administration is shrinking the amount of land eligible for drilling at an oil reserve in the Arctic.

The administration announced on Monday that it would return to an Obama administration plan that would enable the government to lease up to 52 percent of the National Petroleum Reserve — Alaska for oil and gas exploration. It reverses a Trump-era plan that would have opened up 82 percent of the reserve.

While the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) had previously indicated that it had selected the Obama administration’s plan as its “preferred alternative” for further consideration, on Monday it issued a Record of Decision formally affirming that it would return to the Obama-era plan.

The National Petroleum Reserve — Alaska is an approximately 23-million-acre area in Alaska’s north slope.

4. I have to say, I was more comfortable when oil price was down

that they would not drill. It would be very costly to drill there anyway but now that prices are up, I just hope no company is willing to invest that much with the quick turn to alternatives with this war and all.
