WASHINGTON, DC, June 30 -- The final supplemental environmental impact statement for the Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA) in Wyoming is available, the US Bureau of Land Management said on June 26.

The FSEIS is part of a US Department of the Interior analysis of a proposal by Questar Market Resources Co., Shell Exploration & Production Co., and Ultra Petroleum Inc. The three producers have proposed conducting year-round drilling and completions within the PAPA, BLM said.

BLM added that the FSEIS is not a decision document, but is designed to inform the public and interested agencies of environmental and socioeconomic impacts that could result from the project and to evaluate alternatives.

Additional information acquired from public comments and from internal reviews could result in the selection of an alternatives or group of alternatives to provide the best operating practices, impact mitigation and management practices to reduce environmental harm, BLM said.

The FSEIS will be available for viewing at the Pinedale BLM field office and online at
