Hey Wyoming Mineral Owners!! Large oil and gas project edges forward in Converse County

01/29/2018 9:26 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Bureau of Land Management released an environmental study on Friday for a 5,000-well oil and gas project in Converse County, Wyoming.


Five major players in Wyoming industry proposed the joint project, which would cover 1.5 million acres, just north of Interstate 25 between Glenrock and Douglas, and take place over a period of 10 years. Each well proposed is expected to last about 30 years, according to the environmental study.


It’s a hefty undertaking in a region of Wyoming that’s already expecting another oil and gas boom if prices hold.


Anadarko Resources, Chesapeake Energy, EOG Resources, SM Energy and Devon Energy are the partners on the proposal, first made in 2014, before the oil sector busted. The Bureau of Land Management anticipates the joint approach to drilling in the southern Powder River Basin will generate more than 8,000 jobs and between $18 billion and $28 billion in revenue.


About 90 percent of the land is private or state owned. Only about 6 percent of the project’s 1,500 well pads will be built on Bureau of Land Management Land. The remainder is on the U.S Forest Service-managed Thunder Basin National Grasslands.
