New state map shows oil, gas resources

Jul 22, 2012 From staff reports

A comprehensive new map on oil and natural gas resources in Wyoming covers a range of information -- from the geology to key facilities and production.

The map released last week by the Wyoming State Geological Survey covers oil and gas extractive activities across the state. It is part of the agency's professional map series.

"This map demonstrates our role in mapping energy resources that are used to provide for our state and the nation's energy needs," said Tom Drean, director of the WSGS. "Our scientists and GIS specialists produce these maps so everyone from industry leaders to policy makers can see with one source all the critical information they would need on oil and gas resources and production in Wyoming."

Download the free map at Prints and a DVD version are available to buy at the site.

Using geographic information systems technology, the map was generated to illustrate a compilation of information. It includes the boundaries of producing and abandoned oil and gas fields in Wyoming and other features.
