Wyoming provides the nation with reliable and cost efficient energy, while also responding to a constantly changing energy environment. The Wyoming State Geological Survey (WSGS) today released its annual energy report series highlighting the state’s energy trends in supply and demand. Wyoming oil continues its upward trend, natural gas has declined but could increase as new developments come online, the coal industry is in a state of flux, and uranium production has doubled in the last year.
“From a geologic standpoint, the state is rich in the key energy resources that the nation relies on to support manufacturing, heat homes, and provide electricity,” says Tom Drean, director of the WSGS.
