Major oil, gas project up for review in Utah

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comment on its draft study of a company's proposal to significantly boost its oil and gas production in the Uintah Basin.

Newfield Exploration Co., Utah's largest crude oil producer, would be able to add 5,750 new oil and gas wells over a 16-year period at an existing field under the plan.

The Monument Butte Project covers 120,000 acres near Myton, and would result in 170 miles of new roads and new pipelines in Duchesne and Uintah counties.

The BLM says its plan is the most restrictive for new oil and gas development across sensitive landscapes while still meeting project needs.

The agency will accept public comment on the plan through Feb. 4.
