LAKEWOOD, Colorado – The Bureau of Land Management has awarded a $15.4 million contract for the cleanup of the Anvil Points site, part of the Naval Oil Shale Reserves 1 and 3, also known as the Roan Plateau, to North Wind Inc. of Idaho Falls.The contract will fund cleanup and safe storage of a spent oil shale pile at the former oil shale research site. The cleanup will remove a 300,000-cubic-yard oil shale pile to a newly constructed oil shale repository.The Anvil Points Fund was established by the 1997 Transfer Act, which transferred management of the Roan Plateau to the BLM. Royalties from past oil and gas development in the Roan Plateau funded the cleanup of the Anvil Points site.”Awarding this contract is a key milestone for certification of the obligations contained in the 1997 Transfer Act,” said BLM Colorado State Director Sally Wisely. “Certification will ensure that the state of Colorado receives a share of future royalties and bonus bids as well as royalties from existing leases on the Roan Plateau.”
