Annotation: This report documents the first in the series of DOE studies on resource impacts due to lease stipulation and land use categorization for the Rocky Mountain region. This report presents the study results for southern Wyoming and northwestern Colorado and focuses on the Greater Green River Basin (GGRB) and adjacent areas. The GGRB basin was chosen as the first to be studied because it contains the largest amount of potential natural gas resources in the Rockies. The study area covers almost 29 million acres of land, of which over 16 million are under federal ownership. In this project, data on federal lands, including current restrictions and lease stipulations and data on underlying natural gas resources, were collected and analyzed.
