Unified Agenda 1018-AX36

National Wildlife Refuge System; Oil and Gas Regulations


We propose regulations that ensure that all operators conducting oil or gas operations within a National Wildlife Refuge System unit do so in a manner as to prevent or minimize damage to National Wildlife Refuge System resources, visitor values, and management objectives. FWS does not intend these regulations to result in a taking of a property interest, but rather to impose reasonable controls on operations that affect Federally-owned or controlled lands, and/or waters.
