Energy — Wyoming Has It All
The State of Wyoming produces 13.2 percent of all U.S. energy, providing more coal and uranium than any other state. Wyoming is the second leading producer of natural gas among the 50 states; it is the seventh largest producer of oil. The state is quickly becoming a major provider of wind energy. An additional significant consideration in energy production is transmission facilities, pipelines for natural gas, and transmission lines for electricity. Because of the consequences of development for Wyoming’s public lands, wildlife, and air and water quality, the Wyoming Outdoor Council focuses on the environmental effects of energy production.
More information on energy in general and energy production in Wyoming in particular can be found at the U.S. Department of Energy Energy Information Administration or at the Wyoming State Geological Survey.
