From the Bureau of Land Management:

The Bureau of Land Management, Elko District, Wells Field Office signed a decision record on Noble Energy’s (Noble) proposal to conduct oil and gas exploration drilling in the Tabor Flats area, approximately four miles northwest of Wells, as part of Noble’s oil and gas exploration lease.
 
Noble plans to drill and complete a maximum of 20 wells on public and private lands and conduct oil and gas exploratory drilling in the project area. Noble has identified 35 potential well pad locations, 20 of which may be constructed over a two-year period or more.
 
The project area includes 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 operations will comply with all applicable federal Onshore Oil & Gas Orders and do not include any Wild Horse herd management areas.
 
An Environmental Assessment (EA) was prepared and released for a 30-day public review period on March 24, 2014. The EA, Noble’s Gas Exploration proposal and master surface use plan are available at www.blm.gov/rv5c under The NEPA Corner.
