The US Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments on Rosewood Resources Inc.’s proposal to develop an oil and natural gas field in the Atchee area 40 miles south of Vernal, Utah.

The privately held Dallas independent plans to develop gas on 11,109 acres, 10,240 of which are BLM-administered, 640 of which are state-managed, and 49 of which are privately owned, BLM’s Vernal field office said in a May 11 notice. Written comments will be accepted until June 10.

BLM said Rosewood plans to directionally drill 151 wells from 38 existing and 30 new well pads. Proposed activity also includes 7.5 miles of new road, up to 15 miles of new or replacement surface gas and water lines, and construction of three to nine new compressor stations and expansion of three existing compressor stations.

Rosewood proposes to drill 8-20 wells/year over the next 8-20 years until the resource base is fully developed, BLM said.
