The federal Bureau of Land Management has pulled three parcels east of Dinosaur National Monument from an oil and gas lease sale after concerns were raised by the National Park Service and conservation groups.

The agency deferred the three parcels, totaling more than 5,000 acres, for further analysis.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, environmentalists said the agency has not done a required inventory of wilderness areas around the lease parcels.
