WY Considers Pushing Oil, Gas Ops Further from Homes, Schools

The Wyoming Star Tribune reports that "oil and gas operations might be pushed further away from homes, schools and other residential buildings under a rule change being considered by Wyoming regulators."  

"But is unclear when and how that rule would be implemented."  

"Mark Watson, the state's interim Oil and Gas supervisor, said Tuesday in a public meeting in Casper that his agency will prioritize an examination of the minimum distance required between energy development and residences. The current distance is 350 feet."
