BLM Pinedale Field Office seeks public input on proposed NPL Project
Normally Pressured Lance new natural gas field in Sublette County proposed by Encana Natural Gas
by Bureau of Land Management
April 12, 2011

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office (PFO), in conjunction with the Rock Springs Field Office (RSFO), is seeking public comment on Encana’s proposal to drill approximately 3,500 natural gas wells within the 141,080-acre Normally Pressured Lance (NPL) natural gas field in Sublette County over a 10-year period.

The Notice of Intent for the NPL project was published in the Federal Register on April 12, 2011 and initiates a 30-day public scoping period. The PFO and RSFO will host three public scoping meetings beginning at 5:30 p.m. on the following dates and locations: Monday, May 2 at the BLM PFO, 1625 W. Pine St., Pinedale, Wyo.; Tuesday, May 3 at the Marbleton Senior Center, Rakestraw Ave., Marbleton, Wyoming; and Wednesday, May 4 at the BLM RSFO, 280 Hwy. 191 N., Rock Springs, Wyoming.

An environmental impact statement (EIS) will be prepared for the proposed project located approximately 35 miles south of Pinedale, Wyoming, and immediately south and west of the existing Jonah Infill Natural Gas Project.

The proposal and associated documents can be reviewed at the PFO, 1625 W. Pine St., Pinedale, Wyo., or at the RSFO, 280 Hwy. 191, Rock Springs, Wyo., or online at

Public comments are an important component of the National Environmental Policy Act process and help to identify issues, concerns, and mitigation opportunities. Comments should be constructive and relate directly to this proposal and impending EIS. Please be as specific as possible and cite any data or other information that you believe would assist the BLM in developing the most realistic range of alternative actions and the best-informed environmental impact analysis.

Comments will be accepted until close-of-business on Thursday, May 12, 2011. Mail or deliver written comments to: Kellie Roadifer, PFO, 1625 W. Pine St., P.O. Box 768, Pinedale, WY 82941. Comments can also be emailed to
