Energy Map of Southwestern Wyoming

Energy data archived, organized, integrated, and accessible

USGS Publication: General Information Product 145
The Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI) focuses on conserving world-class wildlife resources while facilitating responsible energy development in southwestern Wyoming. To further advance the objectives of the WLCI long-term, science-based effort, a comprehensive inventory of energy resource and production data is being published in two parts.

Geodatabase of Wyoming statewide oil and gas drilling activity to 2010

USGS Publication: Data Series 625
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) compiled a geographic information system (GIS) of Wyoming statewide historical oil and gas drilling activity for the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI). This product complements the 2009 USGS publication on oil and gas development in southwestern Wyoming  by approximating, based on database attributes, the time frame of drilling activity for each well (start and stop dates).

Oil and Gas Development in Southwestern Wyoming

Energy Data and Services for the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative

USGS Publication: Data Series 437
The purpose of this report is to explore current oil and gas energy development in the area encompassing the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative. This report is meant to facilitate the integration of existing data with new knowledge and technologies to analyze energy resources development and to assist in habitat conservation planning.


Overview

WLCI Study Area
WLCI Study Area

The Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative is a long-term science-based effort to ensure southwestern Wyoming’s wildlife and habitat remain viable in areas facing development pressure. Wyoming encompasses some of the highest quality wildlife habitats in the Intermountain West. At the same time, this region is an important source of natural gas. It is critically important to apply a geologic understanding of emerging patterns of energy resource exploitation, to identify the most likely geographic domains of future impact. Using Geographic Information System technology, energy data pertinent to the conservation decision-making process have been assembled to illustrate the temporal evolution of oil and gas production in the Greater Green River Basin over the last century. Additional work will concentrate on improving understanding of other energy resources in southwest Wyoming. This website is meant to facilitate the integration of existing data with new knowledge and technologies to analyze energy resources development and to assist in habitat conservation planning.
