BLM seeks comments on planned geophysical projects in Utah

The US Bureau of Land Management’s Moab, Utah, field office has requested public comments on two proposed geophysical projects.

It said it is seeking comments about 3D seismic work Fidelity Exploration & Production Co. has proposed in the Hatch Point area about 12 miles southwest of Moab.

The Lion Mesa 3D geophysical survey would cover 50 sq miles in San Juan County, the field office’s Aug. 23 notice said. Written comments will be accepted until Sept. 12.

BLM’s Moab field office also requested comments on an environmental assessment of potential impacts from the proposed Horse Point Anticline 2D geophysical project in southeastern Utah’s Book Cliffs.

It said Geokinetics USA Inc., on behalf of National Fuel Corp., proposes conducting an operation consisting of two parallel seismic survey lines totaling six linear miles in the Middle and Horse Canyon areas. Written comments will be accepted by letter or e-mail until Sept. 19, the field office’s notice indicated.
