SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM Uncompahgre Field Office received a proposed MDP for natural gas exploration and development from SG Interests I, Ltd. (SGI) for the Bull Mountain Unit. An MDP provides information common to multiple planned wells, including drilling plans, Surface Use Plans of Operations, and plans for future production. The Bull Mountain Unit MDP Draft EIS describes the exploration and development of up to 146 natural gas wells, four water disposal wells and associated infrastructure on Federal and private mineral leases within a federally unitized area known as the Bull Mountain Unit. SGI decided to develop the unit after their exploration wells demonstrated the potential for economically viable reserves of natural gas. The Bull Mountain Unit is located within the Colorado River basin, approximately 30 miles northeast of the Town of Paonia and is bisected by State Highway 133. The boundaries of the unit encompass approximately 19,670 acres, Federal and private oil, and gas mineral estate in Gunnison County, Colorado. The unit consists of 440 acres of BLM Federal surface and subsurface land; 12,900 acres of split-estate lands consisting of private surface and Federal subsurface minerals administered by the BLM; and 6,330 acres of fee land consisting of private surface and private subsurface minerals. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ADDRESSES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jan 15, 2015 Jkt 235001 The BLM is considering three alternatives in the Draft EIS: The No Action alternative, the MDP as submitted, and a third alternative developed by the BLM to help evaluate the effects of various modification and mitigation possibilities. Work on the MDP began with a preliminary Environmental Assessment in 2009. The BLM determined that an EIS was necessary due to potential significant impacts to air quality in nearby Class 1 air sheds, water, socioeconomics and wildlife.

The Bakersfield Approved RMP— • Establishes the goals, objectives, and management actions to meet desired resource conditions; • Identifies comprehensive management direction for all resources and uses, including application of onsite, off-site (including compensation), and regional mitigation strategies, as applicable, and landscape-level conservation and management actions to achieve resource objectives; • Identifies lands that are open or available for certain uses along with associated surface restrictions; • Identifies lands closed to certain uses; and • Makes broad-scale decisions to guide future site-specific project implementation for renewable energy, fluid minerals, livestock grazing, and recreation management in the Bakersfield Field Office. The selected alternative for the Approved RMP is the agency proposed plan (Alternative B) in the Proposed RMP/Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), with the minor modifications described below. After publication of the Proposed RMP/Final EIS on August 31, 2012, the BLM received 21 protest letters. The BLM modified the proposed plan based on protest resolution as reflected in the Approved RMP. These changes include, but are not limited to, designation of the Salinas River as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) and adoption of the special management attention for this area as outlined in Alternative C of the Proposed RMP/ Final EIS. The BLM also corrected acreages for the Bitter Creek and Chico Martinez ACECs, which had been modified in the Proposed RMP/Final EIS based on public comments to exclude lands for which the BLM has no authority to apply management prescriptions. The California Governor’s Office did not identify any inconsistencies between the Proposed RMP/Final EIS and State or local plans, policies, and programs during the 60-day Governor’s consistency review. The ROD/Approved RMP route designation decisions are implementation decisions and are appealable under 43 CFR part 4.
