Project Summary
The NPL project is located immediately south and west of the existing Jonah Gas Field within the BLM Pinedale and Rock Springs field offices in Sublette County, Wyoming, about 68 miles northwest of Rock Springs. The project encompasses 141,080 acres, 93 percent of which is on BLM-administered land.  Jonah Energy LLC is proposing up to 3,500 directionally-drilled wells to be drilled over a period of 10 years. Most wells would be co-located on a single pad, with no more than 4 well pads being constructed per 640 acres. On average, each well pad would be 18 acres in size. Associated access roads, pipelines, compressor stations and other facilities would be co-located where possible to further minimize surface disturbance.
