Mar 10, 2013 - Staff

The Bureau of Land Management hosts a Cooperating Agency Meeting at the Wolcott Galleria in Casper from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, March 14, for the Moneta Divide Natural Gas and Oil Development Project Environmental Impact Statement.

The proponents, Encana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc. and Burlington Resources Oil & Gas Company LP, propose to develop approximately 4,250 natural gas and oil wells in the Moneta Divide Project area located in Fremont and Natrona counties.

The project area encompasses approximately 265,000 acres of land, of which 169,500 acres are public lands administered by the BLM's Lander and Casper Field Offices. This is the first cooperating agency meeting for the Moneta Divide Project. The project proponents will describe the proposed plan of development and answer the cooperating agencies' questions. While these meetings are for cooperating agencies, the meeting is open to the general public. Members of the public are invited.
