BLM extends comment period 
on oil drilling near Whitewater

The public will get two more weeks to comment on a company’s proposal to drill up to 108 oil wells from 12 pads on the western flanks of Grand Mesa.

The Bureau of Land Management said Tuesday it is extending the deadline for comment on the preliminary environmental assessment for Fram Operating’s proposal covering some 26,000 acres east of Whitewater and south of Palisade.

The Western Colorado Congress citizens group had asked for an extension of the comment deadline, which had been today.

The preliminary EA is available online at Comments may be emailed to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or mailed to 2815 H Road, Grand Junction, CO 81506.
