BLM seeks comments on Kokopelli pipeline's revised second phase

The US Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments on a revised natural gas pipeline proposal south of Rifle, Colo. BLM’s Colorado River Valley Field Office said it released the original proposal for the 22.3-mile Kokopelli Phase II pipeline, and two water pipelines, which were to have shared its trench for 4.1 miles, in December 2011 (OGJ Online, Dec. 16, 2011). Construction of the lines was to have started this year.

The gas pipeline would run from Kokopelli field in the Piceance basin to a processing plant in Parachute, Colo. Kokopelli field involves tight gas.

Bargath LLC, a Williams Midstream subsidiary, which proposed the project, has requested that construction be delayed until at least 2013 because gas prices have fallen, the field office said on Apr. 5.

Williams Production RMT Co. LLC, which was renamed WPX Energy Rocky Mountain LLC on Jan. 1, originally proposed constructing the water lines and still plans to proceed during 2012, meaning their construction and that of the gas pipeline would occur separately at different times, the notice said.

It said BLM will accept comments, as it begins to prepare an environmental assessment of the revised proposal, through May 2.
