Pursuant to the Federal Onshore Oil and Gas Leasing Reform Act of 1987 (“1987 Reform Act”), when operating on federal lands, an adequate bond (or other financial assurance) must be posted (1) before commencement of any surface disturbing activities related to drilling to ensure reclamation of lands and waters adversely affected by oil and gas operations (“lease bonds”); (2) before entry and commencement of geophysical exploration or surface-disturbing operations and for parties other than lessees before conducting geophysical exploration operations; and (3) before any surface disturbing activities for surface protection.
Bonds Express offers an Oil and Gas Bond with a 99% approval rate.
This bond is required to be for 10 years.
A surety bond protects the party requesting the bond, the Obligee, against any financial losses as a result of poor financial decisions, damages, unethical decisions, or a failure to follow state and local laws on the part of you, the Principal. The Oil and Gas Bond holds you accountable for your business decisions.
By possessing an Oil and Gas Bond, you are telling your Obligee that you can be trusted as a Principal and that you stand behind your business decisions.
