Red Point 3-D Geophysical Project

The Bureau of Land Management Cody Field Office received an application from the Bill Barrett Corporation for authorization to conduct geophysical exploration operations on public lands within Park County, Wyoming. The proposed seismic project is located approximately 22 miles east of Cody, in the McCullough Peaks area and is in the McCullough Peaks Wild Horse Herd Management Area.

Public input is important in establishing the level and scope of the analysis. The public is encouraged to participate in the environmental analysis process to help identify the level of analysis needed, alternatives to the proposed action, other issues or concerns that should be analyzed, mitigation opportunities, and any other comments or ideas to help ensure the completeness of the analysis process. If you are interested in participating in the process and have concerns, issues, or alternatives you would like to see addressed, please respond with written comments by August 16, 2007.

Written comments in response to this notice, including the names and addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Cody Field Office 7:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on weekdays (except federal holidays) after the comment period closes.

Those wishing to review the EA can do so at the Cody BLM office at 1002 Blackburn Avenue, Cody, WY or by visiting the BLM’s website at: http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Cody.html

The BLM will accept comments until August 16, 2007. Written comments should be mailed to:
