The Bureau of Land Management Cody Field Office received an application from Saga Petroleum, LLC for authorization to conduct geophysical exploration operations on 5141 acres of public lands in the Meeteetse Rim – Greybull River area north of Meeteetse, Wyo.

Comments will be accepted through April 2, 2008. The document is available at http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/cyfodocs/meeteetse_3d.html.
