BLM issues decision record for natural gas project north of Price

PRICE, Utah – In support of the Secretary’s priority to sustainably develop America’s energy and natural resources, the Price Field Office finalized the environmental assessment and signed the decision record for the Horse Bench Natural Gas Development Project.  Signing the decision record authorizes the XTO Energy Inc. project, located 36 miles north of Price, Utah, in Carbon County.


“The BLM is committed to responsible energy development,” Green River District Manager Gary Torres said. “This project is an example of the BLM carefully considering potential impacts to sensitive resources while also contributing to the national energy goals of this administration.”


The wells proposed by XTO are on lands managed by the BLM and Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA). The signed decision allows for the extraction, processing, and transportation of natural gas.


This action is allowed by the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920, as amended and supplemented (30 U.S.C. 181 et seq.), the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.). The decision is authorized by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1970 and implements regulations found in 43 CFR Part 3160.
