BLM Kemmerer Seeks Comments on Exploratory Gas Well


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office is seeking public comments on a proposed exploratory gas well and associated developments.

Gary-Williams Production Company (Gary-Williams) has applied for authorization to drill one exploratory gas well (GWPC #33-14D), develop the associated production facilities and construct an access road and pipeline in Lincoln County, Wyo. The proposed project is located west of U.S. Highway 189 in Section 14, Township 22 North, Range 117 West, approximately 22 miles northwest of Kemmerer. An additional well may be directionally drilled off of the same pad pending production results of the first well.

The well would be drilled on BLM-administered public land and would include development of an access road, off-site production facilities and a gas pipeline in the event that the well is producing. The proposed well pad location was chosen to accommodate two wells that could be directionally drilled from a common pad utilizing the same production facilities.

The scoping notice for this proposed project can be found at:  http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/kfodocs/gwpc.html. If you are interested in participating in the process and have concerns, issues, or alternatives you would like addressed, please send written comments postmarked by July 2, 2009. When providing comments, the writer's name and address may become part of the public record.

Please send written comments to Kelli Taylor, Re: GWPC #33-14D, Bureau of Land Management, Kemmerer Field Office, 312 Hwy 189 North, WY 83101. Comments may also be submitted electronically to Kemmerer_Wymail@blm.gov. Please include "GWPC #33-14D" in the subject line. For more information, please call Kelli Taylor at (307) 828-4507.
