Thompson Divide

A Texas-based energy company hoping to drill for natural gas in Thompson Divide recently acquired two leases in that area from Encana Oil & Gas (USA) and has asked federal authorities to “suspend” the leases.

The company, Houston-based SG Interests, submitted the suspension request to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management on March 28, according to the BLM's website, BLM.gov.

In mid-February, SG Interests had asked the BLM to suspend 16 other leases it holds in the Thompson Divide area, separate from the former Encana leases. The 16 leases are set to expire in May and July, and the former Encana leases are set to expire in August and September, according to Encana spokesman Doug Hock.
