The ADNR has deferred leasing all tracts between Tangent Point and Point Barrow (Tracts 555, 557 through 573) as well as those east of Kaktovik (tracts 27 through 39). Deferral means that these tracts will not be offered for lease in this sale, but may be included in future lease sales. The ADNR will annually review the available information for these tracts to determine whether to offer these tracts in the future. The ADNR has deferred all unleased acreage in tracts 77 through 115, 117, 118, 120, 121, 123, 124, 129 and 130 in the Point Thomson and surrounding area. These tracts will not be offered for lease in this sale, but may be included in future lease sales.
