SECTION 6851-6855



6851.  Lands owned by the State, or lands in which the oil and gas
deposits are reserved to the State, other than tide and submerged
lands, may be leased for the production of oil and gas in accordance
with the provisions of this article and of this chapter in so far as
not in conflict with the provisions of this article.




6852.  Whenever it appears to the commission that it is for the best
interests of the State to lease any such lands for the production of
oil or gas therefrom, or whenever a person who possesses the
qualifications provided in this chapter makes written request
therefor, the commission may offer the same for bidding at such times
and in such parcels as the commission shall determine to be in the
best interests of the State.



6853.  The commission may divide the lands within the tract proposed
to be leased into parcels of convenient size and shape and shall
prepare a form of lease therefor.



6854.  Lands, including the Tule Elk State Reserve located in
Township 30 South, Range 24 East, MDB&M in Kern County, other than
tide or submerged lands, belonging to the state and dedicated to a
public use may be leased by the commission for the production of oil
and gas in accordance with this article and this chapter insofar as
not in conflict with this article.
   Where those lands have been acquired for the use of a specific
state agency, consent of this agency shall be obtained by the
commission for occupation by a state lessee of the surface of the
lands for drilling locations or producing facilities. The commission
may lease those lands, including the Tule Elk State Reserve in Kern
County, for the production of oil and gas without the consent of the
state agency if development under the lease is made by slant drilling
from surface locations on lands not under the control of the state
agency. However, the commission shall consult with the Department of
Parks and Recreation prior to approving a lease for the production of
oil and gas underlying the Tule Elk State Reserve to ensure that the
purposes for which the parklands were acquired are not adversely
affected.
   The commission may grant a subsurface oil and gas lease in
accordance with subdivision (b) of Section 6815 covering all or any
portion of the Tule Elk State Reserve in Kern County for the
production of oil and gas underlying the reserve by means of slant or
directional drilling from surface locations outside of the reserve.



6855.  The proceeds of any lease for the extraction of any oil and
gas from lands owned by the State, other than public lands or tide or
submerged lands under the jurisdiction of the commission, property
escheated to the State or held in trust, lands held by the State as
tax-deeded property and lands acquired for state highway purposes,
shall be paid into the General Fund in the State Treasury, regardless
of whether such lease is executed pursuant to this chapter or any
other provision of law.
