SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The planning area is located in southwest Colorado in Archuleta, Conejos, Dolores, Hinsdale, La Plata, Mineral, Montezuma, Montrose, Rio Grande, San Juan and San Miguel counties. The Supplement to the Draft EIS was prepared to include the development potential of a shale gas play area found within the western portion of the planning area. Information about the Gothic Shale Gas Play (GSGP) area became available during the comment period on the Draft EIS and Draft LMP (between December 14, 2007, and April 2008). The GSGP is a 646,403-acre area within Paradox Basin in Montezuma, Dolores and San Miguel Counties. The play area includes a mix of private, state, and public lands, with Federal mineral estate encompassing 57 percent of the area. Comments indicated that the shale gas formation warranted inclusion in the Draft EIS given the technological advances in directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing that made shale gas extraction more viable, economically feasible and successful in other parts of the country. The Reasonable Foreseeable Development (RFD) scenario for oil and gas on the San Juan National Forest and BLM public lands covered by the Draft LMP was revised to include the GSGP development scenario (including trends, VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:37 Aug 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 timelines, well numbers, infrastructure, and surface disturbance). According to the RFD, approximately 1,200 wells could be developed on Federal mineral estate lands over the next 15 years. The supplement analyzes the consequences of the new development projections for oil and gas leasing and discloses the results of a recently completed air-quality model, as requested by the Environmental Protection Agency. The supplement does not address other issues or attempt to address comments received on the Draft LMP/Draft EIS. The supplement does not change the range of alternatives, nor add or remove any alternatives—it only adds information regarding the GSGP area and air quality model results for public review and comment. The supplement only contains new information about oil and gas leasing, and the potential environmental consequences associated with it, including potential effects to air quality. The BLM met with and consulted 10 Tribes on oil and gas development which concluded on September 2010. The BLM finds that further consultation is appropriate under Executive Order 13175 and will send the draft supplement to the 25 Tribes that the BLM regularly contacts about issues in this area. The BLM will schedule faceto-face consultation meetings to discuss the supplement at the Tribes’ request. All public comments submitted during the original Draft LMP/Draft EIS comment period regarding other plan revision issues and resources are still valid. The comments received in 2008 and the comments received on this supplement will create the complete set of comments that will be considered in developing the Final EIS and Proposed LMP. The supplement is intended to be used in conjunction with the Draft EIS and Draft LMP that was published on December 14, 2007. Those documents can be found on the plan revision Web site: http://ocs.fortlewis.edu/forestPlan. Compact disk copies, and a limited number of printed copies, are available by contacting Elysia Retzlaff, (970) 385– 1253; emretzlaff@fs.fed.us.
