BLM Buffalo Field Office Participates in Energy Reclamation Workshop

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office, in coordination with the Wyoming Natural Resource Conservation Service, Campbell County Conservation District and Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory, will conduct an energy reclamation workshop. The workshop will be held on Thursday, April 4 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Fire Department Training Center, 701 Larch Street, Gillette, Wyo.

The focus of the workshop is providing information on reclaiming energy infrastructure and converting coalbed natural gas (CNBG) wells to livestock water sources. Speakers will be presenting topics such as reservoir catchment area and watershed size, well perforation and testing, solar pumps, and government assistance. The workshop will conclude with a panel discussion on different or additional reclamation requirements available to producers.

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 sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
