Utah: BLM lists EA for Uinta exploration project

By OGJ editors

An environmental assessment for QEP Resources Inc.’s two-well oil exploration project in eastern Utah has been released for public comment, the US Bureau of Land Management’s Vernal, Utah, field office said. Comments will be accepted through Nov. 7.

The Denver independent producer plans to drill two oil wells southwest of Vernal in Uintah and Duchesne counties, the field office said. It said that total new surface disruption under the proposed action would be 14.53 acres and involve construction of two well pads, including reserve pits, and construction or upgrading of two roads.

The EA supplements the draft environmental impact statement for the Greater Natural Buttes Area gas development project and includes recent ozone monitoring data for the Uinta basin. The EA may be viewed at (www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/fo/vernal/planning/nepa_.html)
