Moab, Utah—The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Utah Moab Field Office is seeking public comment on an environmental assessment (EA) analyzing the potential impacts of a proposed 3-D seismic exploration project on the northern end of Hatch Point in San Juan County, Utah.
 
The EA evaluates potential impacts associated with the Lion Mesa geophysical survey project proposed by Fidelity Exploration and Production Company. The project covers 50 square miles in San Juan and Grand Counties and would be conducted during fall 2014 and early 2015.
