The Moneta Divide project is principally located along U.S. Route 20/26 near the town of Lysite in Fremont and Natrona counties, Wyoming. A proposed product pipeline extends south from the oil and gas production area through Fremont and Sweetwater counties to Wamsutter, Wyoming. The project spans the BLM Wind River/Bighorn Basin, High Plains and High Desert districts. The project area encompasses approximately 327,645 acres of public, state and private lands. Approximately 67 percent of the project area is located on BLMadministered public lands. Aethon Energy Operating, LLC and Burlington Resources Oil & Gas Company, LP are proposing to develop up to 4,250 wells and associated facilities over a 15-year period. Under the Plan of Development, Aethon would drill up to 4,100 wells, of which approximately two-thirds would be drilled vertically from single-well pads and one-third would be drilled directionally from multi-well pads, consisting of four wells per pad. Burlington would drill up to 150 wells from single-well pads. The proponents would utilize disposal wells, water treatment plants, evaporation ponds, surface discharge and other approaches to produced-water management. Water pipelines delivering treated produced water to Boysen Reservoir could also be built. Associated access roads, pipelines, compressor stations and other ancillary facilities would be co-located where possible to further minimize surface disturbance. The BLM analyzed four alternatives: Alternative 1, the No Action Alternative, includes existing standard stipulations and oil and gas well development authorized during the preparation of the EIS in accordance with the Interim Drilling Plan. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:23 Apr 18, 2019 Jkt 247001 Alternative 2, the Proposed Action, is the proponents’ Plan of Development. Alternative 3 emphasizes resource production, analyzing development using only single-well pads and other measures that facilitate oil and gas development within the project area. Alternative 4 addresses a range of resource issues identified during scoping and provides the proponents greater flexibility to treat and dispose of produced water. Specifically, Alternative 4 analyzes reduced surface disturbance through more directionally drilled wells placed on multi-well pads, wildlife and cultural resources protection measures, and a water management strategy that would involve greater surface discharge of produced water and more disposal wells. All action alternatives (Alternatives 2, 3 and 4) analyzed the same rate of development although Alternative 4 would allow a slower pace of development, if needed, for managing produced water in accordance with federal and state requirements. The Draft EIS also evaluates amendments to the Casper RMP, which are analyzed under Alternatives 3 and 4. Under Alternative 3, the Casper RMP would be amended to establish a Designated Development Area in the portion of the Moneta Divide oil and gas well production area in the Casper Field Office to facilitate intensive mineral production. Under Alternative 4, the Casper RMP would be amended to increase the protections of the Cedar Ridge Traditional Cultural Property. The proposed amendments are not required in order to authorize the Moneta Divide project, which as proposed, is in conformance with the Casper RMP. Depending upon the alternative selected, the BLM would issue its decision to amend the Casper RMP in a separate Record of Decision from the Moneta Divide project. All alternatives conform to the provisions of the Lander RMP Record of Decision (2014), Casper RMP Record of Decision (2007) and Rawlins RMP Record of Decision (2008), as amended. Treatment and disposal of produced water would be in compliance with State of Wyoming permit(s) including all protections against degradation of public lands. All alternatives require that interim and final reclamation activities would be implemented to return the landscape to proper biological and ecological function in conformance with the Moneta Divide Reclamation Plan and the relevant Resource Management Plans. Formal public scoping for the Moneta Divide project began on January 17, 2013, with the publication in the PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16533 Federal Register of the Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS and a possible land use plan amendment to the Casper RMP (78 FR 3911).

Background

    The Commission, pursuant to sections 705(b) and 735(b) of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)), instituted these 
investigations effective January 17, 2018, following receipt of a 
petition filed with the Commission and Commerce by American Cast Iron 
Pipe Company (Birmingham, Alabama), Berg Steel Pipe Corp. (Panama City, 
Florida), Berg Spiral Pipe Corp. (Mobile, Alabama), Dura-Bond 
Industries, Inc. (Export, Pennsylvania), Skyline Steel (Newington, 
Virginia), and Stupp Corporation (Baton Rouge, Louisiana). Effective 
August 27, 2018, the Commission established a general schedule for the 
conduct of the final phase of its investigations on large diameter 
welded pipe, following notification of preliminary determinations by 
Commerce that imports of large diameter welded pipe from China, India, 
Korea, and Turkey were subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) 
of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and that imports of large diameter 
welded pipe from Canada, China, Greece, India, Korea, and Turkey were 
being sold at LTFV within the meaning of 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 
1673b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the 
Commission's investigations and of a public hearing to be held in

were permitted to appear in person or by counsel. On January 30, 2019, 
the Commission issued final affirmative determinations in its 
antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of carbon and alloy 
(other than stainless) steel welded large diameter line pipe from 
India, its antidumping investigation of carbon and alloy (other than 
stainless) steel welded large diameter line pipe from China, and its 
antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of carbon and alloy 
(other than stainless) steel welded large diameter structural pipe from 
China; final negative determinations in its antidumping and 
countervailing duty investigations of stainless steel welded large 
diameter pipe from China and India; and terminated its countervailing 
duty investigation of carbon and alloy (other than stainless) steel 
welded large diameter line pipe from China, and its antidumping and 
countervailing duty investigations of carbon and alloy (other than 
stainless) steel welded large diameter structural pipe from India (84 
FR 1785, February 5, 2019).\4\ Following notification of final 
determinations by Commerce that imports of large diameter welded pipe 
from Canada, Greece, Korea, and Turkey were being sold at LTFV within 
the meaning of section 735(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673d(a)),\5\ and 
subsidized by the governments of Korea and Turkey within the meaning of 
section 705(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671d(a)),\6\ notice of the
