OIL FRACKING LEASES Reason For Bundy Ranch Fiasco in Nevada NOT 'Desert Tortoise!
The Survival Place Blog ^ | Aprol 11, 2014 | kackikat

"The Bureau of Land Management has just cashed in with $1.27 million in oil and gas leases in Nevada. This was just reported two weeks ago in, which states:

U.S. Bureau of Land Management geologist Lorenzo Trimble tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal the Elko County oil and gas leases sold

Tuesday for $1.27 million to six different companies. The auction took place in Reno. The leases are near where Houston-based Noble Energy Inc. wants to drill for oil and natural gas on 40,000 acres of public and private land near the town of Wells. The Review-Journal reports the project would be the first in Nevada to use hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to extract oil and gas from shale deposits.

The way this works, of course, is that BLM runs land theft operations by claiming they are “managing” the land and thereby kicking everyone else off it. "

I think the point was that BLM lied about the ‘Desert Tortoise’ because they were destroying that same reptile last year!
And be sure to check the link on comment #22 for the plan on Solar in So Nevada land....more gov’t backed solar companies to waste taxpayer dollars and fill dem coffers before going bankrupt?
I like Solar but not the fleecing of the people!

‘Kornze, the new BLM chief, is familiar with the area. He’s a natural resource manager who grew up in Elko, Nev., and served previously as a senior adviser to Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid.”

It is because he did not pay his bills. He does not have the right to use public land for grazing without the fee just because his family did in 1884.

What statute can you cite for your claim? How do you know this rancher's rights weren't grandfathered from a time long before the existence of the BLM and that what the gov't has done here essentially constitutes a taking?

I just gave that reply privately to someone who made a point objection...thanks.
People who haven’t dealt with the government or the leftist Environmentalists have no idea how they can put enough fines, penalties, and legal expenses on someone to get the land easily.

The link is that the solar plant abused the local environment and the BLM needs to provide compensatory mitigation in some other area, like Bundy's grazing lease area.

The cattle must be removed from the range to offset the impact of the solar plant.

Doubt seriously that is for the actual leases, more than likely it’s for being allowed to do the seismic work.

If it is for seismic work then the companies paying for the seismic work will get first right of refusal on the leases.

You may be right, but do you have any documentation or proof?

I don’t. I have cows and understand the business. I have to pay my lease fees on the land I don’t own.

The person who wrote that article said fracking uses toxic chemicals in the well and fracking causes earthquakes.

I know carbon dioxide is put under pressure down the well that is also horizontal in two directions at the bottom of the well, where the carbon dioxide combusts and releases the oil/gas from the shale. I wouldn't call carbon dioxide a toxic chemical in a well as the author does. He should list the toxic chemicals if he says there are some.

There is also no proof fracking causes earthquakes. Underground geology is considered before a fracking well is drilled.

These drilling companies strive for safety as they don't want anything to happen to destroy the well they are drilling. They are investing millions of dollars to bring in that well and lose millions if the well is compromised. They also have to abide by OSHA safety rules while drilling these wells.

You hit the nail on the head, and I see it in courthouse deeds or contracts all the time, and the democrat leftist control freaks have even gone so far as to hide those facts.

We get the government we deserve, and we deserve what we tolerate. Bundy seems to be done tolerating what the rest of us have put up with.

I doubt he paid his lease after his permit was denied, due to the tortoise.

Interesting how the Feds voted themselves control of state lands. The states need to start evicting the blm, EPA, NSF, ect.

That $1.27 million doesn't include the millions in bribe money that was paid to obama and his cronies. The only thing this regime wants to drill is money for their own pockets. Well, that's beside all the drilling that goes on between Berry and Reggie.

Government control and greed anyway, and the real fact being more lies from the BLM, to hide ‘whatever’.

I’m not saying ‘everything’ Mike Adams wrote is accurate, but in reviewing the Natural News and the Map, I’m considering the lying involved.... it was the best source available and the article I found this morning.

However, I think now that these solar damage issues and the oil leases are surfacing, we will find more facts that have been hidden under the guise of the ‘Desert Tortoise”. And exposure of a cover up to make money, when all the BLM had to do was take Bundy’s money he tried to pay for the leasing in prior years....instead this refusal and saying he did not pay shows premeditation to eventually do exactly what they are doing now.

Sounds like 6 companies got themselves a real good deal.

Only if they get production. Otherwise, no.

Early leases let in the Bakken play were going for from $0.25 to 0.50 an acre. Much of the area had been drilled conventionally (vertical wells) and the usual producing formations had little to no porosity development. Keep in mind it was all highly experimental, and at that point, considered pure risk for the oil companies involved.

Still, Oil drilling/production has never really interfered with grazing. The Blackburn field north of Eureka was discovered partly because of natural oil seeps in stock (water) tanks.
