BLM seeking public comment on proposed natural gas pipeline
A company is proposing to build a 16-inch-diameter, 95-mile pipeline across northwestern Colorado and part of Utah to increase its ability to ship natural gas liquids from Wyoming and Colorado to Hobbs, N.M.
The Bureau of Land Management is seeking initial public comments on the proposal by Enterprise Mid-America Pipeline. It would follow an existing pipeline corridor across Rio Blanco, Garfield and Mesa counties, plus Uintah and Grand counties in Utah.
The company hopes to build what it is calling the Western Expansion Project II in 2012.
The BLM asks that comments be submitted by Aug. 5 for use in beginning an environmental review of the proposal.
Written comments and questions should be directed to the BLM Northwest Colorado District Office at 2815 H Road, Grand Junction, CO, 81506.
Copies of the proposal are available at the BLM Grand Junction Field Office, also at 2815 H Road. A map of the proposed pipeline will be made available at http://www.blm.gov/co/st/en.html, the BLM said. For more information, contact Erin Dreyfuss at 244-3008.
