FEIS released for Normally Pressured Lance (NPL) natural gas development project
Final Environmental Impact Statement
June 22, 2018
The Bureau of Land Management in Wyoming has released the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Normally Pressured Lance (NPL) Natural Gas Development Project in Wyoming. The NPL project is located immediately south and west of the existing Jonah Gas Field in Sublette County, Wyoming.
The FEIS is not a decision document, but one will be issued 30 days after the FEISís release.
If approved, the NPL project could unlock up to 7 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of natural gas providing an additional reliable energy source for America. The proposed project could also create approximately 950 jobs during the development phase and generate $17.85 billion in total project revenues with Federal royalties amounting to about $2.2 billion, of which about $1.1 billion would go to the State of Wyoming.
"The NPL project is important to Wyoming and the nation," says BLM Deputy Director Brian Steed. "It will provide valuable natural gas to power the country, significant royalty revenue to the state and Treasury, and the type of jobs that support western communities."
A copy of the entire NPL Final EIS is available at https://go.usa.gov/xnp3E.
