Title: Leasing of Osage Reservation Lands for Oil and Gas Mining 

This proposed rule would revise the regulations in 25 CFR part 226 because they are outdated; do not reflect current oil and gas operations within the Osage Mineral Estate or the industry at large; and are inconsistent with Departmental regulations governing oil and gas exploration and development throughout the rest of Indian country. The rule would advance the purposes of E.O. 14058; and provide for the implementation of electronic royalty and production reporting systems, reducing administrative burdens on operators, purchasers, and the government, and streamlining accounting and reconciliation processes.
