Cancellation of Oil and Gas Lease Sale 219 in the Cook Inlet 
Planning Area on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS)

AGENCY: Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement, 
Interior.

ACTION: Cancellation of Cook Inlet Lease Sale 219.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of the Interior has decided to cancel Cook 
Inlet Sale 219 that is scheduled to occur in the Revised Program for 
2007-2012. Cancellation of Sale 219 due to lack of interest is 
necessary to allow sufficient time to gather new baseline data for 
environmental review, analysis, and identification of mitigating 
measures. The time will also be used to further develop and implement 
measures to improve the safety of oil and gas development in Federal 
waters.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Renee Orr, BOEMRE, Chief, Leasing 
Division, at (703) 787-1215 or renee.orr@boemre.gov.
