The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office (PFO) is seeking initial public comments on the proposed Enterprise Jonah Gas Gathering Company LLC (EJGGC) 14.5 mile-long, 30-inch dehydrated natural gas pipeline in Sublette County.
Construction is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2011 and be completed in the fall of 2011. The pipeline will run from EJGGC’s Paradise Compressor located on private land north of the New Fork River to the Falcon Compressor located on state land south of Highway 351. Approximately 11 miles of the pipeline would be routed through the Bird Canyon Corridor as designated by the 2008 Record of Decision for the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Pinedale Anticline Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Project. The remaining length of the pipeline would follow the corridor designated by the 2000 EIS into the Falcon Compressor. Pipeline segments crossing the New Fork River, Paradise Road, South Boulder Road and Highway 351 will be bored.
Public comments will be accepted from Jan. 3, 2011 until Feb. 1, 2011 and should be mailed or delivered to: Bill Wadsworth, BLM Pinedale Field Office, P.O. Box 768, 1625 W. Pine, Pinedale WY 82941 or emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org with “EJGGC Pipeline” in the subject line.
