Guidance on the Extraction of Oil and Gas on Federally Obligated Airports
This AC discusses oil and gas development on federally obligated airport land, including any drilling that penetrates the subsurface of airport owned land. It describes how existing FAA policy, guidance, standards and obligations, as well as other applicable laws and regulations, apply to proposed oil and gas extraction from obligated airports (both use of surface land and extraction of subsurface minerals/oil/gas). It does not create new requirements for on-airport or nearby off-airport land use or development. The AC was produced as a joint effort by the FAA’s Offices of Airport Planning and Programming, Airport Safety and Standards, and Airport Compliance and Management Analysis.
