Thank you for your continuing coverage of the BLM oil and gas lease sale proposed for August 2012. Despite your comprehensive coverage of this issue, there still seems to be some misinformation in the community about Gunnison Energy Corporation's role in these lease nominations and our plans for development in the area.
Let me be absolutely clear: Gunnison Energy did not nominate any parcels in Delta County for the 2012 lease sale and we are not interested in leasing any of the proposed parcels in Delta County. Accordingly, Gunnison Energy will not be bidding on any of the parcels in Delta County if and when they may be put up for sale.
Gunnison Energy did, however, nominate three parcels in Gunnison County that are inside our existing Deadman Gulch federal unit and near our existing infrastructure and development. We believe that these three parcels are appropriate for development and can be developed in an environmentally sound manner. Gunnison Energy has a long history of responsibly developing oil and gas resources in Delta and Gunnison counties. We were the first operator in the state to complete a comprehensive drilling plan protecting more than 2,400 acres of valuable wildlife habitat and we are committed to the responsible development of the area's resources. We will continue to keep your readers updated on our development plans so that we can be accountable and transparent to the communities we live and work in.
