Gas Drilling Landscape Aerial

Aerial pictures of oil drilling pads in the Jonah field where the landscape is dotted with active and reclaimed sites.  Wyoming's Red Desert was included in The Wilderness Society's list of "15 Most Endangered Wildlands" because of a boom in the already massive oil and gas development in the wild heart of the 600,000 acres. ..20-acre well spacing in parts of the field is currently under evaluation by field operators. Exploitation of this potential will require further engineering evaluation, but also approval by the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission as well as the BLM.
