NOTICE OF VIOLATION AND ORDER
In Re Patriot Energy Resources LLC
Patriot Energy Resources purchased numerous CBM wells from previous developers. Patriot was granted the transfer of those CBM wells and posted a bond for them. The CBM wells have been idle for 2 years or more and Patriot has not taken any steps to reclaim the reservoirs associated with those wells and the bond. DEQ has filed the necessary paperwork to forfeit the bond.
In Re Red Desert Gravel
The operator, Red Desert Gravel, is no longer licensed to do business in Wyoming and the minerals leases have expired for each operation. I have therefore determined that the three reclamation performance bonds posted by Red Desert Gravel/Mr. Jim Wise should be forfeited at this time. I have determined that the bond for these LMO Permits Red Desert Gravel (Mr. Jim Wise, Agent), 1305ET, 1358ET, and Jim Wise 1276ET should be forfeited.
