Colorado: Comment sought on Encana well pad plan

The US Bureau of Land Management is seeking comments on a proposal by Encana Oil & Gas to construct a 5-acre natural gas well pad in the Piceance basin 5 miles south of Rangely, Colo., BLM’s White River field office announced on Aug. 31.

Comments should be submitted by Sept. 17 to be considered for an environmental assessment that is being prepared, it noted.

The proposal includes a 300-yd access road and a 6.5-mile, 12-in. buried pipeline that would parallel County Road 27, according to BLM. Encana plans to drill eight wells from the pad, it said.

The total disturbance prior to interim reclamation would involve 53.2 acres of BLM land and 11.8 acres of private land, the agency said.
