WASHINGTON, DC, May 13 -- The US Bureau of Land Management issued an environmental assessment and draft finding of no significant impact from a proposed natural gas project east of Cody, Wyo., on May 11.

Bill Barrett Corp., a Denver independent producer, proposed drilling seven natural gas wells and constructing access roads, pipelines, and a compressor station in the McCullough Peaks area, BLM's Cody office said.

In his assessment and draft finding, Michael P. Stewart, the office's field manager, said he determined that the proposed project is not a major federal action and would not significantly affect the environment in the area. "Therefore, an environmental impact statement is not needed," he said.
