BLM Seeks Public Comment on Pipeline Right-of-Way Near Moab


Moab, Utah—The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Moab Field Office (MFO) is seeking public comment on an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed Dead Horse lateral gas pipeline project. The proposed pipeline would carry natural gas that is now being flared in the Big Flat area to a processing facility located near the Blue Hills Road. The proposed 24-mile long pipeline would be constructed by Fidelity Oil and Gas and would roughly parallel Utah State Highway 313 and the Dubinky Well Road. The document analyzes the potential environmental impacts of the construction of the Dead Horse lateral natural gas pipeline.
 
The draft EA is available on the Environmental Notification Bulletin (ENBB) at https://www.blm.gov/ut/enbb/index.php; search for project name “Dead Horse.” Comments on the EA should be as specific as possible with references to page numbers and chapters of the document. Written comments will be accepted by letter or email through August 26, 2013. Please reference “Dead Horse Lateral Pipeline” when submitting comments. Written comments may be mailed or emailed using the following addresses:
