BLM seeks comments on NGL pipeline environmental assessment

The US Bureau of Land Management has released an environmental assessment of a proposed 95-mile natural gas liquids pipeline in eastern Utah and western Colorado and is seeking public comments on the project, BLM’s Grand Junction field office said.

It said that Enterprise Mid-America Pipeline Co. is seeking approval to begin construction on the 16-in. line, the Western Expansion Project II, which would be part of a larger pipeline system from Colorado and Wyoming to Hobbs, NM.

The segment would begin in southeastern Uintah County, Utah, and follow an existing pipeline corridor across Rio Blanco, Garfield, and Mesa counties in Colorado before terminating north of Moab, Utah. It would increase current capacity by 15,000 b/d, BLM said.

Comments on the preliminary EA will be accepted through July 31, it said.
