ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice advises the public that the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), in cooperation with the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho Tribes, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), intends to gather information necessary for preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for drilling additional coalbed natural gas wells and conventional gas wells in the Riverton Dome Field, Wind River Indian Reservation, Fremont County, Wyoming. The purpose of the proposed action is to meet the Tribes’ need to maximize their economic benefit from this trust resource. This notice also announces a public scoping meeting to identify potential issues and alternatives to be considered in the EIS.

VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:52 Sep 26, 2005 Jkt 205001 The Riverton Dome Coalbed Natural Gas (CBNG) and Conventional Gas Development Project area is located in Township 1S, Range 4E, Sections 13, 14, 23, 24, 25, 26, 35 and 36; Township 2S, Range 5E, Sections 1, 2, 11 and 12; Township 1S, Range 5E, Sections 17, 18, 19, 20, 29, 30, 31, and 32; and Township 2S, Range 5E, Sections 5, 6, 7 and 8, in the southeast corner of the Wind River Indian Reservation. The project area consists of approximately 13,804 acres, of which 12,632 are tribal and 1,172 are non-tribal surface and minerals. The proposed action consists of drilling up to 336 CBNG and 20 conventional gas wells over the next 10 years, with a life-of-project of 20 to 40 years. Approximately 46 of the CBNG wells and 15 of the conventional wells would be drilled on existing pads. Economic conditions and the evaluation of the drilling results would determine the actual number of wells that would be drilled. In addition, the project would require 9000hp of new compression, and may require up to 88.8 miles of rights-of-way for construction of flow lines, access roads and power lines. The initial disturbance from construction of well pads and compressor stations and construction within rights-of-way is estimated to be 1,081 acres, or 7.8 percent of the project area. Long-term disturbance after reclamation is anticipated to be 592 acres, or 4.3 percent of the project area. These disturbance values are based on 40-acre spacing. Initial and residual disturbance at 80-acre spacing would be 611 and 329 acres, respectively. Each CBNG well may initially produce approximately 500 barrels of water per day, which is expected to decline rapidly. The three water disposal options in order of priority are: (1) Evaporation pit water disposal, (2) underground injection well disposal, and (3) surface discharge. The permits for the evaporation pit and deep well disposal of produced water have been approved. A permit application for surface discharge has been filed with, and is being reviewed by the EPA. The Riverton Dome Field currently contains 55 oil and gas wells and 3 CBNG wells. In addition, the BIA has approved a CBNG Pilot Project, in which up to 20 CBNG wells may be drilled. Some of these wells may be drilled within the proposed project area while the Riverton Dome environmental analysis is being conducted. The drilling program will be monitored by the BIA and BLM to ensure that activities do not adversely affect the environment or prejudice the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 completion of the environmental analysis.
