On October 26, 2015 the National Park Service (“NPS”) issued a proposed rule entitled “General Provisions and Non-Federal Oil and Gas Rights; Proposed Rule” (80 Fed. Reg. 65571, the “Proposed Rule”). This Proposed Rule would modify service-wide regulations governing the exercise of non-federal oil and gas rights on NPS units, under 36 CFR part 9, subpart B (9B regulations). API, the Independent Petroleum Association of America, Western Energy Alliance, and the American Exploration & Production Council (“the Associations”) join in submitting these comments to the proposed rule.
