BLM Seeks Input on Proposed Mary's River Gas Exploration

Posted: Updated:

From the Bureau of Land Management:

The Bureau of Land Management, Elko District, Wells Field Office is making the Mary's River Oil and Gas Exploration Project Environmental Assessment (EA) available for review until April 23. The proposed Noble Energy (Noble) project would conduct gas exploration drilling in the Tabor Flats area, west of Wells, as part of its current oil and gas leases. The EA and Noble's Master Surface Use Plan are available at www.blm.gov/rv5c.
 
Noble proposes to drill and complete a maximum of 20 wells on public and private lands located approximately four miles northwest of Wells. The project could last more than two years and hydraulic fracturing would be used in the proposed exploration drilling. Construction associated with the project includes drill pads and new roads as well as maintenance or upgrades to existing roads to allow for drill rig and support vehicle traffic.
 
The project area includes a total of 39,445 acres including 20,622 public land acres (52 percent of the project area), 2,603 acres (7 percent) of private surface with BLM-administered subsurface mineral rights, and 16,220 acres (41 percent) of private lands and minerals. The proposed operations will comply with all applicable federal Onshore Oil & Gas Orders and do not include any wild horse areas.
 
If you have any issues or concerns please email them to MarysRiverEA@blm.gov or if you need more information contact Bryan Mulligan, Assistant Field Manager at (775) 753-0276.
