(US) - The US Department of the Interior's Minerals Management Service will hold its upcoming Central Lease Sale 198 in New Orleans this March.
Regional Director Chris Oynes said he is pleased to be able to continue holding the annual sale in the city. "There was concern that New Orleans might not be able to host the event in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina," Oynes explained. "Fortunately, the New Orleans Hilton Riverside will be able to accommodate our needs."
Bid reading for Central Sale 198 will begin at 9:00a.m. on Wednesday, March 15, in the Napoleon Ballroom. Individuals needing rooms for the sale should call 1-800-445-8667 (1-800-HILTONS) and refer to the group rate for Department of the Interior/Minerals Management Service.
