Cody BLM Releases EA for Rocktober Unit Natural Gas Project


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody Field Office is making an environmental assessment (EA) and draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) available for review on a proposed natural gas project in the McCullough Peaks area east of Cody, Wyo. Bill Barrett Corporation proposes to drill natural gas wells and associated facilities on BLM-managed land.

An EA has been prepared to analyze the impacts of the proposed project. The EA and draft FONSI will be available for public review by visiting the BLM website at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/cyfodocs.html. The documents will also be available for viewing at the Cody Field Office, 1002 Blackburn Avenue in Cody.

The review period ends June 12, 2009, after which a decision will be issued on the project. For more information, please contact the Cody Field Office at 307-578-5900.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
