Alaska intends to move an oil and natural gas lease sale from late October to December to boost promotion of the event and add more properties, said Dan Sullivan, commissioner of the state's Department of Natural Resources.

The lease sale includes 14.7 million acres on the North Slope, in the North Slope foothills and in the Beaufort Sea.
