Farmington Field Office Scheduled Onsite Inspections

What are Onsite Inspections?

Before approval of the APD, an onsite inspection will be conducted with the operator to further identify site-specific resource protection concerns and requirements.  Prior to, or in conjunction with, the onsite inspection, the surface management agency will advise the operator if any special inventories or studies are required, such as for cultural resources or threatened and endangered species.

May 20, 2022

The BLM has scheduled an onsite inspection for Friday, May 20, 2022.  We will look at the well pad, TUA, and layflat waterline proposed by Logos Operating, LLC.  

  • The proposed Rosa Unit Pad 5 (550H, 552H, 554H, 556H) would add four new wells to the existing Rosa Unit 180A well pad and expand the pad by 2.4 acres. The project would utilize the existing access road and well-tie pipeline. A 2.9 acre Temporary Use Area (TUA) would be constructed north of the well pad to house a lake tank and compressor. A temporary lay-flat water line would be installed to bring water from the Rosa Unit 60B POD at the Navajo Reservoir, located in Section 4 Township 31N, Range 6W, to the TUA lake tank, and then from the TUA to the well pad for drilling and completion activities. The proposed project area would be located in Section 4 & 9, T31N, R06W on BLM managed land in San Juan County, NM.  

We will meet at the Subway in Ignacio, CO at 10:00 am on Friday, May 20, 2022 and then proceed to the onsite location. 

NOTE: The meeting location is around 1 hour and 15 minutes of driving time from Farmington. Please plan accordingly. 
The address for the meeting location is 580 Goddard Ave. Ignacio, CO.
