ELY, Nev. (AP) — Federal land managers are seeking public comment on their proposal to nominate 193 parcels of public land for potential oil and gas leasing in eastern Nevada.

The Bureau of Land Management's Ely District is analyzing the parcels totaling 406,600 acres to identify potential impacts for an environment assessment.

The public is facing a May 27 deadline to comment.

The agency is considering the plans as a Houston-based oil company pursues gas exploration drilling on 39,445 acres of public and private lands about 4 miles northwest of Wells.

Noble Energy Inc. plans to drill up to 20 wells around Tabor Flats in Elko County.
