PINEDALE — In lieu of an in-person meeting, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office has made Pinedale Anticline Project Area planning updates available online. Documents typically presented during a meeting, including wildlife, air, water, operator, and agency reports, are available here.
The Pinedale Anticline Natural Gas Field is located in the Upper Green River Basin of west-central Wyoming, south of Pinedale. The Anticline’s 198,000 acres of rolling sagebrush are 80 percent federally owned.
The area has one of the richest concentrations of natural gas in the United States, currently estimated at more than 25 trillion cubic feet.
Planning documents include information on the following:
- Annual wildlife updates, such as mule deer and greater sage-grouse population reports and mitigation actions
- Annual air, water and operator updates concerning socioeconomics, air quality, water quality, reclamation, and operator development projections
