SALT LAKE CITY- U. S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar was set to approve a major natural gas drilling project in Utah.

Salazar planned to make the announcement Tuesday at a pipeline compression station on Salt Lake City's west side. He offered no details before the event got under way.

Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah said about 3,500 natural gas wells on public lands in eastern Utah will be approved.

Hatch and environmental groups said Salazar gave the go-ahead to a project by Texas-based Anadarko Petroleum Corp.
