Ultra Resources proposes condensate pipeline in Wyoming

GREEN RIVER, Wyo. - A Houston-based energy company is proposing to construct a 42-mile pipeline to move condensate out of the Pinedale Anticline natural-gas field to a terminal located south of LaBarge, according to Bureau of Land Management officials.
The move is expected to reduce truck traffic in the lucrative Sublette County gas field, which should help reduce potentially dangerous ozone-causing air pollutants and reduce effects on wildlife.
BLM spokeswoman Lorraine Keith said Ultra Resources Inc. proposed building the 6-inch pipeline to fulfill a requirement in the agency's supplemental environmental impact statement record of decision.
The document mandated that field operators install a liquids-gathering system to reduce truck traffic associated with production in the Anticline within two years.
State and federal officials have been working with oil and gas operators in recent years to take steps to reduce pollution from field equipment, condensers and other facilities in an effort to reduce ground-level ozone concentrations in the region.
