The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Moab Field Office is seeking public comment on an environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed Dead Horse lateral gas pipeline project. The proposed pipeline would carry natural gas that is now being flared in the Big Flat area to a processing facility located near the Blue Hills Road, according to a news release from the BLM.

The proposed 24-mile long pipeline would be constructed by Fidelity Oil and Gas and would roughly parallel state Route 313 and the Dubinky Well Road. The EA analyzes the potential environmental impacts of the construction of the Dead Horse lateral natural gas pipeline.

The draft EA is available on the Environmental Notification Bulletin (ENBB) at https://www.blm.gov/ut/enbb/index.php (search for project name “Dead Horse.”) Comments on the EA should be as specific as possible with references to page numbers and chapters of the document. Written comments will be accepted by letter or email through Aug. 26. Those submitting comments should reference “Dead Horse Lateral Pipeline,” BLM officials said. Written comments may be mailed to: Bureau of Land Management, Moab Field Office, 82 East Dogwood, Moab, Utah 84532. Comments may be submitted by email to: blm_ut_mb_comments@blm.gov.

For additional information, contact Jan Denney at 435-259-2100.
