Surface Compliance Internship (BLM Wyoming): Project Background Information: The Rawlins Field Office encompasses 12.5 million acres in south-central Wyoming and includes the eastern third of Sweetwater County in addition to all of Carbon, Albany and Laramie counties. Within that area, the Rawlins Field Office is responsible for the management of 3.5 million acres of public lands and approximately 4.5 million acres of federal mineral estate. Most recently, the Atlantic Rim Natural Gas Project (ARNG) Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and recently issued Record of Decision (ROD) provides the plan for future management of the federal surface and mineral estate in the Atlantic Rim Project Area (ARPA). Associated with such project development will be an increased need for compliance monitoring. Project Objective: The intern will be conducting environmental compliance & monitoring (70% in the field, 30% in the office) inspections of oil & gas development project sites in accordance with approved Plans of Development and Conditions of Approval (benchmark document to measure compliance and success). Interns will target locations to determine if projects have been developed and are being operated according to all applicable jurisdictions. Environmental impacts, the effectiveness of conditions of approval (COA), and the success of reclamation (post-use land restoration) will all be monitored. Benefits: A.
