BLM Buffalo Approves Programmatic EA for Crazy Cat Project Area


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office announces the availability of Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Decision Record (DR) for the Crazy Cat East programmatic Environmental Assessment (EA) for exploratory oil and gas development in Johnson and Campbell counties, Wyo.

The BFO prepared this EA in response to a plan from an operator in an area east of the Powder River in Johnson and Campbell Counties. This approved exploration and development plan will be available for use in processing subsequent site-specific applications for permit to drill (APDs) and associated infrastructure.

Electronic copies of the FONSI, DR, and EA are available by visiting the BLM website at: www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/documents/bfo/crazycateast.html.

For more information, please contact BLM Natural Resource Supervisor Casey Freise, 307-684-1100.



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.
