Scoping Announced for the
Pappy Draw Exploratory Coalbed Natural Gas Project
The Bureau of Land Management’s Lander Field Office is conducting scoping on the Pappy Draw Exploratory Coalbed Natural Gas Project (CBNG). A public scoping meeting will be held in Lander at the Pronghorn Inn, 150 East Main Street, Lander, Wyoming on December 13, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
The 30-day scoping period begins December 10, 2007, and will continue through January 10, 2008.
The Pappy Draw Exploratory CBNG project, proposed by EnCana Oil and Gas (USA), Inc., is located approximately 70 miles southeast of Lander in southeast Fremont County and northeast Sweetwater County, Wyoming. EnCana proposes to drill sixteen CBNG wells and three water injection wells in the Pappy Draw project area. The project would be divided into three sub-groups, Pappy Draw, East Pappy Draw and North Pappy Draw Units. The wells in each group would be accessed from existing and new roads. Produced water gathered from the wells of each group would be injected at a water disposal well at each group. Natural gas gathered from group wells would be compressed at a booster compressor station located at each group for delivery to a central high pressure compressor station. Overhead distribution lines will be included to power the facilities.
