Notice of Proposed Reinstatement of Terminated Oil and Gas Lease, Utah, 34389 [E6-9256]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 114 / Wednesday, June 14, 2006 / Notices rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES 1997, projected and analyzed a Reasonable Foreseeable Development (RFD) scenario of 1,100 oil and gas wells, with 10 acres of disturbance per well (including roads and pipelines), over a 20-year period (approximately 55 wells per year). The RFD projected that nearly 2/3 of the oil and gas development activity (or 800 wells) would take place south of Rangely, Colorado with the remaining activity dispersed throughout the remaining field office area. While this projection has been fairly accurate for the activity south of Rangely, the current and projected oil and gas activity in the Piceance Basin may soon far exceed the RFD/EIS impact analysis. The oil and gas industry has indicated that the potential exists to develop over 13,000 oil and gas wells in the Piceance Basin over the next 20 years. The current WRFO RMP/EIS does not adequately address this projected level of oil and gas development. The BLM has identified some preliminary planning criteria to guide the development of the plan. The following planning criteria have been proposed to guide the development of the plan, to avoid unnecessary data collection and analyses, and to ensure the plan is tailored to issues. Other criteria may be identified during the public scoping process. Proposed planning criteria include the following: • The plan will comply with all applicable laws, regulations and current policies. • Broad-based public participation will be an integral part of the planning and EIS process. • The plan will recognize valid existing rights. • Environmental protection and energy production are both desirable and necessary objectives of sound land management practices and are not to be considered mutually exclusive priorities The BLM will analyze the proposed action and no action alternatives, as well as other possible alternatives that could include alternative approaches to mitigation measures and/or conditions of approval for future oil and gas development in the planning area. Alternatives will be further defined as part of the planning process. Vernon Rholl, Acting Field Manager. [FR Doc.
