The Handbook prescribes a sequence of steps by which mineral occurrence potential or development potential is applied to make oil and gas lease stipulation planning and allocation decisions. In essence, under the Handbook, development potential is used to predict the location and intensity of oil and gas development assuming that existing management prescriptions will remain in place. Then, alternatives to existing management are formulated in order to mitigate the impacts and resolve the conflicts that would likely arise from continuing with existing management.
