In Oregon, the state owns all geothermal resources located on state land and some resources on land previously owned by the state. See [http://landru.leg.state.or.us/ors/273.html ORS 273.775 to 273.790]. There is a process to acquire geothermal rights from the state. See [https://openei.org/wiki/File:Land_sale_mineral_release_complete.pdf Acquisition Application].
Oregon has a geothermal leasing process for geothermal interests retained by the state. The [http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/pages/rules/oars_100/oar_141/141_075.html Geothermal Lease Regulations] are administered by the [[Oregon Department of State Lands]]. General licensing information is available on [http://licenseinfo.oregon.gov/index.cfm?fuseaction=license_seng&link_item_id=14662 Oregon's Licenses, Permits and Registrations Geothermal webpage].
Overview of the permit or section being discussed.
==3-OR-a.1 - Has the environmental process been completed?==
Under [http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/pages/rules/oars_100/oar_141/141_075.html OAR 141-075-0035(2)], "an environmental impact assessment which documents the factors considered by the applicant in his formulation of the geothermal project for which a state lease is required" will be required before the lease can be granted. The environmental assessment is used to determine appropriate conditions to include in the lease.
The [[Oregon Department of State Lands]] has a [https://openei.org/wiki/File:Coordination.pdf coordination plan] they use to circulate land actions in order to ensure all land use and environmental considerations have been addressed.
==3-OR-a.2 - Environmental Review Process==
Oregon does not have comprehensive environmental statutes. The environmental studies required under [http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/pages/rules/oars_100/oar_141/141_075.html OAR 141-075-0035] satisfy the geothermal leasing requirements.
A part of the environmental review will likely take into consideration potential impacts on the coast.
The [http://www.oregon.gov/LCD/OCMP/Pages/FedCon_Intro.aspx Coastal Management Program] staff at [[Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development]] also participate in various local and state permit reviews for projects proposed in Oregon's coastal zone. In some cases, [[Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development]] is reviewing a federal action concurrent with the local or state permits. But [[Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development]] also reviews various local and state permits as a commenting agency only; i.e., the department participates as an interested party but does not make any regulatory decision.
==3-OR-a.3 - Is there a high probability of geothermal resource development?==
Under [http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/pages/rules/oars_100/oar_141/141_075.html OAR 141-075-0520], a Designated Geothermal Resources Areas (DGRA) may be established "upon a finding that a high probability of geothermal resource development exists." If there is a high probability of geothermal resource development, the [[Oregon Department of State Lands]] is most likely to use the competitive geothermal leasing process. Otherwise, the noncompetitive leasing process will be utilized.
==3-OR-a.4 - Noncompetitive Geothermal Lease==
