The individuals who work in Wyoming’s oil and gas industry take environmental responsibility very seriously. Not only is it the right thing to do, but the vast majority of those who work in the fields are Wyomingites through and through. You know what that means. They love this state, the outdoors, the wildlife, the wide open spaces, and the crisp cool air. Ensuring that these things continue to exist in great abundance for our kids and grandkids is a bedrock principle.
We know that as a major employer in the state, oil and gas operators provide thousands of our fellow Wyomingites with good, high paying jobs and a quality way of life. Ensuring that our neighbors of today can provide for themselves and their families, and have the means to be active participants in their communities is also a bedrock principle.
The good news is these principles are not in conflict. We can produce the energy Americans and the world needs while continuing to leave Wyoming a better place. We are proud of our role in building a strong and vibrant Wyoming while also ensuring our wild and open spaces stay wild and open.
