Richardson proposes West Bison Basin waterflood

The US Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments on a proposed waterflood program in the Jurassic Nugget formation and new oil and gas wells on public land in Fremont County, Wyo., 20 miles south of Sweetwater Station, BLM’s Lander, Wyo., field office said on Feb. 3.

BLM will accept comments through Mar. 5 for an environmental assessment it is preparing for Richardson Operating Co.’s proposed Bison Basin project.

BLM said that the Greenwood Village, Colo., independent producer’s proposal includes implementing a waterflood program in the new West Bison Basin Unit. It said that the proposal also calls for five water injection wells and one new oil well in the West Bison Basin Unit, three new oil wells in the existing Bison Basin Unit, and one exploratory gas well in the North Bison Basin Unit.

A production facility also would be expanded to accommodate waterflooding equipment, the agency said. The proposed project’s anticipated life is 20 years, it indicated.
