Pursuant to the provisions of 30 U.S.C. 188(d) and (e), and 43 CFR 3108.2-3(a) and(b)(1), a petition for reinstatement of oil and gas lease NVN-78650 for lands in Elko County, Nevada, was timely filed and was accompanied by all the required rentals accruing from August 1, 2005, the date of termination.
No valid lease has been issued affecting the lands. The lessee, Standard Oil Corporation, has agreed to new lease terms for rentals and royalties at rates of $5.00 per acre or fraction thereof and 162/3 percent, respectively.
