Comment period on Overland Pass pipeline

RBC — The Bureau of Land Management is releasing an Environmental Assessment (EA) for public comment, for the proposed Overland Pass Pipeline Piceance Basin Lateral Natural Gas Liquids Project.
The proposed 152-mile natural gas liquids (NGL) pipeline project consists of construction, operation, and maintenance of a 14-inch diameter buried steel pipeline and related facilities that would originate southwest of Meeker and terminate southeast of Wamsutter, Wyo. Facilities would include a 2,000-foot, six-inch diameter lateral facility connection pipeline, manual shut-off valves at regular intervals, pigging facilities and two meter stations. The proposed pipeline would transport a total of 100,000 barrels of NGL per day. Approximately 96 percent of the proposed pipeline route would run parallel to existing pipelines, and/or other utility corridors.
CDs of the EA are available for review at BLM offices, including:
n BLM White River Field Office, 220 East Market St., Meeker, Colo., 81641
