After a six-year environmental review process, Enefit American Oil is welcoming the BLM decision to approve the applications connected to a utility corridor project in Uintah County. The BLM decision issued on Wednesday allows for the extension of utility lines across a small portion of federal land to serve the company’s oil shale project. “This is a tremendous milestone for our future project and for energy development in Utah and the Mountain West region,” shares Enefit CEO Rikki Hrenko-Browning. “We have worked closely and cooperated with the BLM and other federal, state, and local agencies since the environmental review process began in late 2012. Many potential concerns were identified by agencies, interest groups, and the public during the process, and we appreciate the BLM’s diligence in determining that these issues can be adequately addressed to allow a right-of-way easement across this federal property.” Enefit cooperated fully with the BLM during the environmental process and has been an active participant in other environmental issues including a penstemon plant Conservation Agreement in 2014.
