WASHINGTON, DC, Sept. 28 -- The US Bureau of Land Management will open a public comment period on Sept. 30 on an environmental analysis of the proposed Tumbleweed II natural gas project in eastern Utah, BLM’s Vernal, Utah, field office announced.

It said that the project area contains 7,655 acres 32 miles south of Ouray, Utah, about 45 acres of which would be disturbed by the proposed development.

The applicant, Denver-based Stewart Petroleum Corp., plans to construct six well pads, drill eight gas wells, and construct 4.2 miles of new or upgraded road and 12.3 miles of pipelines, according to the BLM field office.

It said that it will accept comments on the EA, which it will post online, through Oct. 16.
