Seismic Project Begins at Red Point

The Bureau of Land Management, Cody Field Office, gave approval for work to begin on the Red Point 3D Seismic Exploration Project on Wednesday Sept. 5.

The Bill Barrett Corporation will conduct seismic exploration of a 44 square mile area, approximately 22 miles east of Cody, north of State Highway 14,16, 20, in Park County. Increased truck traffic may be noticed on Whistle Creek Road, and heliportable operations will be taking place in the rougher terrain of the badlands. A BLM inspector will be monitoring the project which is expected to last 90 days. For safety reasons, the public is requested to not approach seismic equipment.
