The US Bureau of Land Management's field office in Montrose, Colo., said on Jan. 30 that it is seeking comments on a proposal to develop a natural gas field near the town of Nucla.

The proposal by Redwine Resources Inc. to full develop the South Nucla gas field includes drilling 20 wells on up to 10 pads, six on BLM surface land and four on private property, the US Department of Interior agency's Uncompahgre field office said.

Access roads and gas gathering lines would be co-located and cross BLM and private acreage, it said. A production facility, including gas processing and compression equipment, would be on private surface land and a 6.8-mile pipeline would run across BLM and private land, according to the notice.

It said that comments should be submitted by Feb. 23 to Thane Stranathan at the field office's mailing address, 2465 S. Townsend Ave., Montrose, Colo. 81401; by fax at (970) 240-5367, or be e-mail at thane_stranathan@blm.gov.
