The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public input on a proposal from Wesco Operating, Inc. to drill an oil and gas well in northern San Juan County.

The proposed well pad is located on public lands approximately 1.7 miles southeast of Looking Glass Rock. The company proposes to access the 5.5 acre well-site via U.S. Route 191 and county-maintained Route 179, which crosses private lands through the Wilson Arch community.

The BLM is committed to sustainable development of energy and natural resources. The Moab Field Office is in the initial stages of the environmental review process for this project and is seeking information from the public to help identify issues, develop alternatives, and guide the analysis for a well-informed decision.

Additional information, including a map, is available for review on the BLM’s ePlanning website:
