The Bureau of Land Management has initiated an environmental review of the right-of-way Enefit needs for its proposed utility corridor, which would connect its mine and processing plant to the Bonanza Power Plant outside Vernal. The corridor would also carry a 16-inch pipeline to Chevron’s east-to-west line that runs 11.5 miles north of the mine, as well as an 8-inch natural gas line, a 30-inch water line and a second 138-kilovolt power line. The pipelines would run underground.

The story goes on…

But Hrenko stressed that Enefit’s “retort” process uses no water, although some will be needed for dust control and returning spent shale to the mine for reclamation….

And…

“It’s an extremely efficient process where we produce all the power to operate the project and we’ll put power into the grid,” Hrenko said.

Don’t need water or power but we need a 30-inch water pipe, a natural gas pipeline and a mainline to the nearest power plant.
