Development Projects

The SUIT DOE has created a guidance manual for Exploration and Production (E&P) operators who are planning an oil & gas development project. This document, Exploration & Production Operator’s Compliance Manual for Energy Development Projects on the Southern Ute Indian Reservation, provides guidance to E&P Operators on the processes for obtaining 1) authorization to drill an oil and gas (O&G) well and 2) right-of-way (ROW) easements and surface leases on the Southern Ute Indian Reservation (SUIR).
