Bill Improves Efficiency of Processing Oil and Gas Permits

Posted: Updated:

Most of the oil drilling in North Dakota is taking place on private land.  But the President has signed a new bill that could change that.

The Bureau of Land Management Streamlining Act was authored by Representative Kevin Cramer. It includes North Dakota in a pilot project that will combine several federal agencies in order to improve the efficiency of processing federal oil and natural gas permits.

"I think that it certainly depends on how quickly the BLM can apply the program and how quickly they can get set up other agencies under one roof. It certainly could help permits that are currently in process, but it will really be a benefit to the permits that are yet to be applied for," says Rep. Kevin Cramer.

Cramer says the new pilot program will continue to grow North Dakota's oil industry, and that streamlining the permit process could increase the drilling on federal lands.
