 WASHINGTON, June 9 (Reuters) - The U.S. government on
Thursday said it had reached an air-quality deal with Anadarko
Petroleum Corp's (APC.N) Kerr-McGee unit to advance the
company's Greater Natural Buttes Area natural gas project in
Utah.
 The project could produce more than 6 trillion cubic feet
of gas over 10 years.
 The project, which would include up to 3,675 new gas wells,
was proposed in 2006 but has been delayed in part over concerns
about its impact on air quality.
 The Interior Department and the Environmental Protection
Agency worked with the company in the last few months to
develop a plan to reduce the project's air pollution.
