Annotation: Natural gas operators proposed to expand existing natural gas drilling and development operations in the Jonah Field in south-central Sublette County, Wyoming, referred to as the Jonah Infill Drilling Project Area (JIDPA) which encompasses approximately 30,500 acres. The Final EIS (FEIS) is intended to provide the public and decision-makers with a complete and objective evaluation of impacts that might occur from the Proposed Action and reasonable alternatives. The Record of Decision for the project documents the Wyoming State Director’s decision to approve, with minor modifications, the preferred alternative as described in the JIDPA FEIS.
