WY Considers Pushing Oil, Gas Ops Further from Homes, Schools

Posted April 17, 2014 at 5:20am

The Wyoming Star Tribune reports that “oil and gas operations might be pushed further away from homes, schools and other residential buildings under a rule change being considered by Wyoming regulators.”  

“But is unclear when and how that rule would be implemented.”  

“Mark Watson, the state’s interim Oil and Gas supervisor, said Tuesday in a public meeting in Casper that his agency will prioritize an examination of the minimum distance required between energy development and residences. The current distance is 350 feet.”
