Tough Love - The Permian Basin Programmatic Agreement Research Program in Southeastern New Mexico
First implemented in 2008, the Permian Basin Programmatic Agreement (PBPA) is an alternative form of compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended.The PBPA allows the oil and gas industry and potash mining companies in southeastern New Mexico to contribute funding for archaeological research in lieu of requiring a class III archaeological inventory within the PBPA Area, provided they avoid recorded cultural resources.This paper describes the context in which the PBPA was developed, research completed, challenges it’s encountered, and suggestions for how this kind of compensatory mitigation could be implemented in future land management elsewhere.
