BLM Invites Public to Pinedale On-site Visit June 22
Regarding Ultra Gas Well Proposal

The Pinedale BLM invites the public to participate in a June 22 public on-site visit to an Ultra Resources proposed gas well site in the Stewart Point area.

The proposed well would be located in the MA-4 Sensitive Viewshed area, as defined by the Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA) Record of Decision. The one-well proposal from Ultra Resource borders the three-well proposal made by Shell Rocky Mountain Production LLC.

All four well pad proposals are located in Sections 6 and 8, Township 33N, Range 109 W.," said Tim Zebulske, BLM Pinedale natural resource specialist. "The Ultra proposal could potentially occupy some of the same area previously designated for the expansion of the Rendezvous Meadows Golf Course."

Participants will meet at 10 a.m. at the new BLM office in Pinedale, located at 1625 West Pine. Two hours have been allotted for the public to review the proposal in the field, beginning at 10:30 a.m. It is recommended that people joining the caravan to the on-site should drive or ride in high clearance vehicles, but four-wheel drive vehicles are not required. Sturdy footwear is recommended.

Along with public input at the on-site visit, comments may be submitted electronically to Pinedale_WYMail@blm.gov. E-mailed comments should include "North Pinedale/Stewart Point well pads" in the subject line. Comments can also be submitted through regular mail to:

Tim Zebulske
BLM Pinedale Field Office
P.O. Box 768
1625 West Pine Street
Pinedale, WY 82941

Written comments on these proposed wells will be accepted through July 13, 2007. When providing comments on this gas well proposal, the writer's name and address may become part of the public record.
