Proposed pipeline up for review
Submitted by David Boyd,
BLM NW Colorado District
The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comment on an Environmental Assessment of a proposed 95-mile 16-inch pipeline to transport natural gas liquids.
The pipeline is being proposed by Enterprise Mid-America Pipeline and would follow an existing pipeline corridor across Rio Blanco, Garfield, and Mesa counties in Colorado, and Uintah and Grand counties in Utah. It would cross BLM lands administered by the White River and Grand Junction field offices in Colorado and the Vernal and Moab field offices in Utah.
The pipeline would increase the company’s capacity for transporting natural gas liquids from Wyoming and Colorado to Hobbs, New Mexico. The company seeks to construct the pipeline, which it calls the Western Expansion Project II, later this year.
Copies of the preliminary environmental assessment are available online at www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/gjfo/energy/western_expansion.html or at the BLM Grand Junction Field Office, 2815 H Road, in Grand Junction.
Comments may be submitted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the BLM Northwest Colorado District Office at 2815 H Road, Grand Junction, CO 81506. Comments need to be received by July 31, 2012. For more information, contact Erin Dreyfuss at 970-244-3008.
