DNM in danger from oil/gas exploration?


I got an email from the group at care2.com concerning a petition to prevent opening federal land in Utah to oil and gas exploration.

Here's a quote from a page (http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/192320016) on their site:

"Without consulting the National Park Service, the BLM has opened thousands of acres for lease to oil and gas development near or directly adjacent to Arches, Canyonlands National Parks and Dinosaur National Monument."

Can anyone on the list, especially anyone familiar with that area, provide details on how much, if any, danger this poses to Dinosaur National Monument?
