Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Continental Divide-Creston Natural Gas Project, Carbon and Sweetwater Counties, WY
Document Number: E6-3043
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-03-03
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Land Management Bureau
Under section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Rawlins Field Office, announces its intent to prepare an EIS on the potential impacts of a proposed natural gas development project consisting primarily of conventional natural gas well development with some coalbed natural gas wells. In April 2005, Devon Energy Corporation (Devon), representing itself and other lease holders, submitted to BLM a proposal to drill and develop up to 1,250 wells from an estimated 1,000 well pads and associated facilities. The Devon proposal was named ``Creston/Blue Gap II Natural Gas Project.'' The BLM published its NOI to prepare an EIS for this project in the Federal Register on September 8, 2005. In November 2005, BP America Production Company (BP), representing itself and other lease holders, submitted a proposal to drill and develop up to 7,700 wells and associated facilities within a portion of the Continental Divide/Wamsutter II (CD/W2) Natural Gas Project area adjacent to the Creston/Blue Gap II EIS (CBC2) project area. Upon reviewing BP's proposal the BLM determined that the CD/W2 proposal and the CBC2 proposal were similar actions within the same geographic area, with similar timing. Based on these factors, the BLM has determined that the best way to analyze these actions and identify their cumulative impacts adequately is to treat them in a single impact statement. The combined proposals, henceforth known as the Continental DivideCreston (CDC) Natural Gas Project, will be considered in one EIS.
