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.
