The CFO prepared this EA in response to a proposal from Samson Resources Company to explore and develop oil and natural gas resources within an area encompassing the existing Scott Field, located 20 miles north of the town of Douglas, Wyo. This approved exploration and development plan will be available for use in processing subsequent site-specific applications for permit to drill (APDs) and associated infrastructure.
The plan includes the drilling of about 150 new oil and gas wells using horizontal and vertical drilling techniques. The drilling will occur on 40 new well pads with two to six wells to be drilled from each pad.
