South Park Master Leasing Plan
Information Resources and Data Sharing Site

The Purpose of a Master Leasing Plan (MLP) is to provide Bureau of Land Management (BLM) managers a way to strategically plan for oil and gas leasing and development and address potential resource conflicts. MLPs were created to establish a guiding framework for the development of a given area and provide a vision for how future development will occur.
