BLM seeks comments on EOG's proposed Natural Buttes liquids system

The US Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments on an environmental assessment of EOG Resources Inc.’s proposed liquids gathering system at the independent producer’s Natural Buttes natural gas leases in eastern Utah.

EOG has proposed building buried pipelines to transport water; combined gas, water, and oil; and compressed gas between 2,100 existing, approved, or proposed wells and 14 proposed processing facilities, BLM’s Vernal, Utah, field office said in a Mar. 14 notice.

Most of the pipelines would be adjacent to existing roads, it indicated.

The proposed project aims to reduce air pollutant emissions from existing and future operations by removing storage tanks from well sites; substantially reducing truck traffic required to transport liquids; and concentrating liquids processing at centralized facilities equipped with advanced emissions controls, the notice said.

Comments will be accepted until Mar. 29, it indicated.
