Comment sought on 4,250-well Wyoming gas project

The US Bureau of Land Management is seeking comment on a proposed Wyoming natural gas development involving up to 4,250 wells on 265,000 acres in Fremont, Natrona, and Sweetwater counties. It also wants comments on possibly amending the 2007 Casper Resource Management Plan, which could be required for the project, it added, BLM’s Lander field office said on Jan. 17.

The US Department of the Interior agency plans to initiate an environmental impact statement for the development, which Encana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc. and Burlington Resources Oil & Gas Co. LP have proposed. BLM administers 169,500 acres of the land that would be involved, and the southern portion of a proposed pipeline would cross federal land in Sweetwater County, it said.

It also has scheduled public meetings on the project, issues to be addressed in the EIS, and the possible amendment of the Casper RMP on Feb. 12 in Casper, Feb. 13 in Lander, and Feb. 14 in Riverton. Comments will be accepted until through Mar. 7, BLM said.

The companies also propose to construct gas processing facilities and a new pipeline to transport natural gas and natural gas liquids to market pipelines near Wamsutter, Wyo., about 100 miles south of the project area.
