BLM seeks comments on Dejour's proposed Colorado gas project

The US Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments on Dejour Energy (USA) Corp.’s proposed natural gas project in northwestern Colorado.

BLM said the Denver-based subsidiary of Dejour Energy Inc. of Vancouver, BC, proposes drilling up to 68 new wells over 5 years from four new well pads on federal leases 3 miles south of Newcastle, Colo., later this year.

Activity would include construction of up to 1 mile of new access roads and 1.5 miles of gas and water pipelines, BLM said. Three of the proposed pads would be on state-owned land and one on BLM-owned land.

BLM is asking for comments in preparation for an environment assessment of the project’s multi-year development plan. It will accept the comments through Aug. 28 at its Colorado River Valley field office in Silt, Colo.
