U.S. oil, gas applications could drop 40 percent 29.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Billings, Mont. • U.S. officials announced plans Thursday to speed up the permitting process for oil and gas drilling on federal lands to reduce delays, as applications were projected to be down 40 percent in coming years versus their historical average amid an ongoing price slump. Low energy prices already have curtailed domestic energy exploration, driving down revenue. That’s put a crimp in budgets for major energy producing states, including Wyoming, Alaska, North Dakota and Montana, which r... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

BLM poised to OK 5,750 new wells for Utah oilfield 29.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The Bureau of Land Management last week wrapped up a six-year environmental analysis of a massive infill drilling program for the Uinta Basin’s Monument Butte unit, which holds the state’s largest proven oil reserves. Under the BLM’s preferred alternative, Newfield Exploration Co. would, over a period of 16 years, drill all 5,750 oil and gas wells it proposed. That plan relies on directional drilling to reduce the project’s footprint in an already affected field covering 119,000 acres south of M... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

The states of Utah, Colorado, North Dakota and Wyoming oppose the rules involving hydraulic fracturing, which involves injecting a mixture of water, sand and chemicals underground to increase production from oil and g...

"The well needs to be plugged" -- Utah goes after nonproducing oil wells on federal leases 10.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
For years, the Government AF 1 gas well has sat idle and rusting on Burt and Christine DeLambert’s ranch on the southern rim of Utah’s East Tavaputs Plateau.

Yet despite rules requiring energy companies to plug and reclaim wells after several years of no production, Hot Rod Oil has don...

Energy bill prospects dim in drilling, drought dispute 7.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Congressional efforts to approve the first major energy bill in nearly a decade are in jeopardy amid a partisan dispute over oil drilling, water for drought-stricken California and potential rollback of protections for the gray wolf and other wildlife.
